"Aspen bound ❤️🎄," the Grammy winner captioned the photo. Carey is seen sporting some leggings, fuzzy boots and a Fendi jacket while her boyfriend wears an all-Gucci fit.

"He's also great with her kids," the source adds. Mariah Carey Says She 'Admires' Beyoncé 'So Much' as She Plays Coy About Potential Verzuz Battle It's time for celebration for Carey, who recently reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. "Congratz mama for #1 for the billionth year!" wrote daughter Monroe, 10, in a Christmas card celebrating Carey's achievement. "I love you #1 mommy for-EVAH! The best mama ever. Billboard Hot 100!" Aspen seems to be the "All I Want for Christmas" songstress' go-to destination for the last several years. In 2019, she spent the holiday alongside Tanaka, ex-husband Nick Cannon and twins Moroccan and Monroe, 10, whom she shares with Cannon. Carey shared photos of the blended family spending time in the snow and enjoying the holiday celebration. "Admiring the snow on Christmas Eve 😍☃️❄️🌨," she wrote then. Cannon also shared a few photos on his Instagram at the time and captioned one with the twins, "Great way to spend Christmas Eve!!" And the year prior, Carey took her children on a ski getaway in the same snow town too. Tanaka, 38, and Carey have been dating since her separation from James Packer in 2016. They met in the early 2000s when Tanaka was her backup dancer. "Shutting down the slopes with demkids ❄🥰🎿😇 Keeping it festive despite my lingering cold 😩," the star captioned a photo of herself — dressed in a full Gucci look — alongside son Moroccan. In another photo, daughter Monroe showed off her modeling skills alongside her mom. And in 2017, Carey and Tanaka were spotted wearing matching hats in the freezing Aspen weather.

The track is set to be a part of her Apple TV+ special Mariah's Christmas: The Magic Continues. "I love 'Fall in Love at Christmas' because I love that it's a departure—it's a love song, and then it's a spiritual song," she told PEOPLE earlier this month. "I say, 'We pray at this Christmastime,' like, love is something we need to give away. Let's give love away. It's really trying to say that we're in a really screwed-up place in the world. We all need grace upon grace upon grace." Carey told PEOPLE she's "extremely happy" with how the song — which she co-wrote — has been received since its Nov. 5 release, and explains that part of its appeal lies in the fact that its lyrics are reflective of her real-life Christmas spirit. Also, as part of the holiday celebrations, Carey has teamed up with Snapchat for the #AllIWantForChristmas Challenge where fans can win up to 50,000 by submitting to the sweepstakes.
