American Idol's Lee DeWyze: Engaged to Jonna Walsh!

American Idol winner Lee DeWyze and Jonna Walsh are engaged!

The 25-year-old singer popped the question to Jonna, his girlfriend of eight months, over champagne on a private yacht under a fireworks-filled sky at Disney World, according to People.

Jonna is a Disney freak,” Lee 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?’”

Lee and Jonna, 26, met on the set of the music video for his single “Sweet Serendipity.” They will be married in the fall of 2012.

Congrats to the happy couple!

    Aw, they’re so cute! He’s originally from somewhere not too far from me, and my godmother met him in a restaurant and said he was very friendly and easy going. Congrats & wish them the best! <3

    8 months? lol Guess he was surprised he snatched someone attractive and wanted to tie her up ASAP

  • Jason

    Who is he?
    She can do better.

    @Sean: Idiot. 8 months is a decent amount of time. It’s not 8 weeks. Jeez. I don’t think you should be the one to talk SEAN.

    she looks way too good for him.
    smart move on his part.
    he needs to lock that down quick before she comes to her senses.

    Nene-Let me second your godmother’s opinion. There was a young girl from Mt. Prospect who was dying of cancer last year. Like all of us Mt. Prospect natives, she loved Lee DeWyze from his appearances on American Idol. She was too ill to attend school; Lee called her every week. Sadly, she died late last year but Lee gave her something to be happy about in her last days. This was never publicized, but friends of her family knew about it so that’s how the word got out. I wish Lee and Johnna well.

    @kelsey: Duhhhh…do you think it might be because he won on American Idol? Don’t be late for your AP class.

    Sorry, 8 months is nothing when you’re that young. I’m sure they love each other deeply but committing to spending the rest of your life with one person takes more than love. You might have a fairytale wedding but marriage is no fantasy.
