Lee DeWyze: ‘American Idol’ Winner Gets Engaged

, the 2010 winner of American Idol, has something to sing about – the 25-year-old Illinois native just got engaged to model/actress Jonna Walsh, according to People magazine.

DeWyze explained that he and Walsh met last October during the taping of his “Sweet Serendipity” music video.

“We were casting and I saw her and said, ‘Let’s go with her.’ I thought she was cute,” revealed Lee. “We hung out and we went to a Lakers game on our first date.”

After dating for only 8 short months, Lee got down on bended knee at Disney World in sunny Orlando, Florida and proposed to his beautiful 26-year-old sweetheart.

Why Mickey Mouse World?

“Jonna is a Disney freak,” DeWyze explained. “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?'”

Indeed it was. Lee, who just completed a tour around the country, revealed that the wedding is currently set for the fall of 2012. Regarding only being together for 8 months and a handful of days, DeWyze says he isn’t concerned about the relatively short jump into marriage.

“When you know, you know,” he said. “We both feel that way. We don’t need to be together 20 years before we figure it out.”

Congratulations Lee and Jonna.
