LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Awwww… Scott MacIntyre is getting married!
The 25-year-old former “American Idol” Season 8 contestant is reportedly engaged to his girlfriend, Christina Teich, and the pair is set to wed later this year, according to Us Weekly.
The couple will make their first public appearance together on February 24 at the Season 10 “American Idol” Top 24 party in Hollywood, according to the mag.
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Scott, an accomplished singer/pianist, finished in eighth place on the hit FOX reality show in 2009. He then toured the country with the show’s live concert tour before releasing an album, “Heartstrings,” in March, which debuted at No. 18 on iTunes.
Scott was “Idol’s” first visually impaired contestant and also battled with dangerous kidney failure that left the Scottsdale, Ariza., native in dire need of a kidney transplant.
“In August 2007, the wife of my former piano instructor from Arizona State University donated her kidney to me,” Scott revealed to Access in an April 2099 interview. “She’s doing well, and I’m doing well. It’s just a miracle everyday that I’m alive now.”
