Winner of American Idol season 9, Lee DeWyze, is engaged to model/actress Jonna Walsh.
“I’m excited,” DeWyze told People.
DeWyze, 25, proposed to Walsh on July 16 on a private yacht under a fireworks-filled sky at Disney World in Orlando.
“Jonna is a Disney freak,” DeWyze said. “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. She started crying and I said, ‘Is that a yes?’”
DeWyze met Walsh in October 2010 while shooting a music video for his single “Sweet Serendipity.”
“We were casting and I saw her and said, ‘Let’s go with her.’ I thought she was cute,” DeWyze revealed.
The couple are planning to get married in the fall of 2012.
