Sorry ladies! American Idol winner Lee DeWyze is officially off the market.
The 25-year-old proposed to his model/actress girlfriend Jonna Walsh earlier this month at Disney World.
"I'm excited," says DeWyze to People, who popped the question July 16 over champagne on a private yacht under a fireworks-filled sky at Disney World in Orlando. The couple are planning to wed in the fall of 2012.
"Jonna is a Disney freak," he says. "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 his fiance last October while shooting a 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."
"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." As for Walsh supporting another team, "We're seeing a counselor about that," he joked.
And was he nervous to pop the question after less than a year of dating? "When you know, you know," he says. "We both feel that way. We don't need to be together 20 years before we figure it out."
Congrats to Lee & Joanna!
