Lee DeWyze is engaged to model and actress Jonna Walsh! Read more on their engagement here!

The singer, who is the 2010 winner of the singing competition show “American Idol”, is getting married!

DeWyze, 25, proposed to Jonna Walsh on July 16 while they were at Disney World in Orlando.

Jonna and Lee plan to marry in the Fall of 2012.

“Jonna is a Disney freak,” Lee explains. “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 Walsh last October on his video shoot for his track “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.”

Lee joked that they are seeing a counselor for rooting for opposing teams.

The couple has only been dating for eight months but the singer said he didn’t hesitate to propose. “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.”
