OTRC: Lee DeWyze of 'American Idol' fame gets engaged

"American Idol" season nine winner Lee DeWyze is off the market ladies!

The singer proposed to his girlfriend, model/actress Joanna Walsh, at Disney World on July 16, reports People. The 25-year-old popped the question on a private yacht while fireworks filled the sky and the two sipped on champagne.

"Jonna is a Disney freak," he told the magazine. "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 and Walsh, 26, met while shooting a video in October 2010 for his single "Sweet Serendipity."

The two plan on getting married in the fall of 2012. "When you know, you know," the singer told the magazine about his relationship with Walsh. "We both feel that way. We don't need to be together 20 years before we figure it out."
