LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- “American Idol” champ 2010 Lee DeWyze is engaged.
The 25-year-old singer is set to marry model/actress Jonna Walsh, Access Hollywood has confirmed.
According to People, the singer popped the question while on vacation at the Magic Kingdom.
“Jonna is a Disney freak,” he told People, explaining they were on a private yacht watching fireworks at Disney World in Orlando on July 16 when he asked for her hand.
“They were playing love songs on the boat and I got down on my knee and asked her. I had a speech prepared but it all went out the window so I just asked her,” he continued. “She started crying and I said, ‘Is that a yes?’”
The singer met his bride-to-be while shooting the video for his single “Sweet Serendipity,” in October.
“We were casting and I saw her and said, ‘Let’s go with her.’ I thought she was cute,” he recalled. “We hung out and we went to a Lakers game on our first date. She’s a Lakers fan and I’m a Chicago Bulls fan and we just clicked out of the gate.”
Adding, “When you know, you know… We both feel that way. We don’t need to be together 20 years before we figure it out.”
Lee and Jonna are planning to walk down the aisle in fall of 2012.
