Phillip Phillips proposed to his longtime girlfriend Hannah Blackwell over the Christmas holiday.
In the photo, the 24-year-old American Idol winner appears overwhelmed and happy.
The singer captioned the photo, “My best Christmas surprise is happening. We’re engaged yall! @HannahBlackwell!”
His now-fiancee wrote on Instagram, “I’ve been dreaming of this for over 20 years. I’ve been dreaming of this guy for just that long. Overwhelmed with happiness. @phillphill”.
Phillip Phillips was a fan favorite (at least for the ladies) when he stepped out on the stage during season 11 of American Idol in 2012. Phillips ended up the winner of the singing competition that year.
Hannah and Phillip both grew up in Leesburg, Georgia.
The cute couple first met when they were both volunteering at a women and children’s shelter and have dated ever since.
Hannah revealed in a tweet to fans in 2012, “He was a little more nervous asking for our 1st date ha. We were so awkward!”
In May 2012, Phillip was asked what he thought would happen in the future down the line.
The singer revealed, “I might have a family going. I’m a really family oriented guy. … I want to have a family of my own one day. I love kids. I want to have my own kids with whoever I marry.”
