Lee DeWyze and Jonna Walsh are Engaged!

We heard the rumors, now People Magazine has made it official.  Season 9 Idol winner, Lee DeWyze and Jonna Walsh are engaged:

“I’m excited, ” says DeWyze, 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?'”

“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.

“We do all kinds of stuff together, ” the singer says of life in Southern California with his fiancée. “We go to plays and exhibits and Jonna is really into the planning for the wedding.”

In a true example of “Sweet Serendipity”, Lee met Jonna when she starred as his love interest in his music video for his single…”Sweet Serendipity”. Aw. They’ve been together 8 months. “When you know, you know, ” Lee says of their relatively short engagement. “We both feel that way. We don’t need to be together 20 years before we figure it out.”
