You're not going to get much out of "Chicago Fire's" Taylor Kinney about his girlfriend. But Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford sure gave it a shot on TODAY Wednesday. For one thing, Kinney's main squeeze is slightly well-known outside TV circles -- she's Lady Gaga.
Kotb noted how adorable it was that Gaga had tweeted a promotion for Kinney's new series, suggesting her fans should watch it. "I was surprised," said Kinney, but he was pleased. "I think she's proud of, you know, girlfriend being proud of her boyfriend. She's been to the set a couple times."
It may be hard to see one another since he's on set and she's on tour, but Kinney revealed Gaga has a secret weapon: "She hasn't said anything, but she has a spaceship and she can get from A to B pretty quickly," he said.
But then he got a little shy about talking about his uber-famous girlfriend, and suggested the ladies talk to her to get the whole scoop. Anyway, he doesn't see her as a big style/music icon. "I don't have that outside view," he said. "For whatever reason, it works. I'm a lucky guy."
