And this time it is no other than the American Idol winner Phillip Phillips. He, who is famous for winning the American Idol title for the eleventh season is tying the knot! Oh yes, the singer who first opened up about his romance back in 2012 has finally popped the question to his longtime girlfriend Hannah Blackwell. The star announced the news of his engagement on his Facebook page on Friday with the caption “My best Christmas surprise is happening. We are engaged y’all! “Hannah Blackwell, now his fiancée, too took to her Instagram page and posted a picture of the engagement ring with the caption “I’ve been dreaming of this for over 20 years. I’ve been dreaming of this guy for just that long. Overwhelmed with happiness.” That is so sweet and adorable. We are extremely happy for the couple.
The engagement ring is a classic round cut diamond solitaire ring crafted in glossy yellow gold metal. Classic and beautiful. Just like every girls dream. The proud and happy fiancé posted the picture of the stunning ring with a Christmas tree in the background.
The couple started dating long before he started his journey on American Idol. The two met while volunteering at a women and children’s shelter in 2009. Hannah mentions about how nervous he had been to ask her out for their first date. And how awkward it had been. The Georgia native always mentioned about Blackwell being very supportive from the beginning. She was like Phillips Phillips support system throughout his American Idol journey and was very excited for him. He also quoted that he would “love her to death”. The singer also had mentioned about their date in an interview with radio station 104.3 MYfm where he said that he had a lot of fun on their first date. Phillips Phillips gave her a hug and asked if he could kiss her? She said yes and they kissed and he was quoted saying “It was very magical”. How adorable is that!
Phillip Phillips has always been good with songs and released his second studio album, Behind the Light, this past May and toured with O.A.R. this summer. His hit single “Gone, Gone, Gone” was used as the send-off song for eliminated American Idol contestants in season 12.
What can be better than a Christmas proposal? After all that is what she wanted for Christmas. Congratulations to the happy couple!
