Danny Gokey announced his engagement to Leyicet Peralta on Christmas Eve. Now, he shares more details about the ring and his proposal with People Magazine.

“Danny originally chose a ring that was too big for Leyicet’s finger,” says Danny’s rep, “so they went on a hunt for a new one together.”

“Leyicet had a specific budget she did not want to go over. The couple know they have a lot of responsibility with Sophia’s Heart, so they wanted to make sure they spent their money wisely.”

Details on the couple’s romantic proposal: “Danny surprised Leyicet and had a car pick her up. They had an intimate dinner by the ocean under a beautiful sunset in downtown Miami.

“After dinner, they went to the ballet, and finally Danny took her where they had their first date. Danny serenaded Leyicet with a song her mother used to sing to her as a baby, ‘You Are So Beautiful,’ and then he popped the big question. She, of course, enthusiastically said yes.”

The happy couple are set to tie the know on January 29.

    Sounds like some tap dancing around some possible fandom angst. NEVER been a fan of Danny’s, but he do what he wants – period.

    I am with you… I have never been a fan of Danny’s but as long as he and his new wife don’t try to make their beliefs laws of the land and live their life without infringing on my right to live mine… more power to them.

    Danny deserves this happiness after everything he has gone through in his young life.  It’s really great to know that media has been especially kind and supportive.

    Much happiness to Danny and Leyicet.

    Nice ring, Danny — lol! :)

    I can imagine their discussing to keep a budget on the ring, and probably other aspects of the wedding itself. Pretty much from the beginning after leaving AI (and maybe before, for all I know), Danny seems to have committed a decent share of his income for Sophia’s Heart. 

    And especially after accepting the donation of that big building in Nashville that he’s been setting up to operate as a transitional facility for homeless families, he’s had some big responsibilities on his shoulders for SH.

    What angst ??? Far as I can see everyone is very happy for Danny.

    I like the ring, most likely Leyicet picked it out since most men pick something large and impractical Sounds like a great proposal though.

    The proposal “event” sounds so very Danny.  He seems like such a romantic.

    He has also been adamant that supporting Sophia’s Heart would need to be important to his next love.  (Since it is part of his core values–helping the less fortunate.  Especially disadvantaged children.)

    I wish them great happiness.

    I am truly happy for Danny to take another shot at married life and hope he finds it to be all that he wants it to be.  No correlation of course but is that not Adam’s birthday- Jan 29?!!

    What a really nice story.  You Are So Beautiful.  I remember Simon calling it a “vocal master class” Danny performed it on AI.  Thanks MJ for the post.

    Am I the only one who finds it just a teeny bit creepy how much she looks like his first wife? Woah.
