“American Idol” Lee Dewyze Engaged
One-time American Idol winner Lee Dewyze is getting hitched. The 25-year-old crooner popped the question to his girlfriend, model-actress Jonna Walsh, 26, on a private yacht at Disney World in Orlando last week.
“I’m excited,” says DeWyze, whose July 16 proposal included champagne and a sky aglow with the booming of fireworks.
Why Disney World?
“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?‘”
The pair met last October, when DeWyze cast Walsh to star in his “Sweet Serendipity” music video. They’re planning a Fall 2012 wedding.
