American Idol winner Phillip Phillips and his longtime girlfriend Hannah Blackwell are engaged. The handsome stud popped the question on Christmas and shared the news with fans via social media.
“My best Christmas surprise is happening. We’re engaged yall! @HannahBlackwell,” the American Idol Season 11 winner posted on Facebook on Friday accompanied by a photo of the husband and soon-to-be wife with excited faces as Hannah showed off her engagement ring.
Blackwell shared her excitement on Instagram where she shared a close up of her new bling with the caption, “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”
The two met while volunteering at a women and children’s center when Phillips was just 18. Blackwell was featured in his video for his breakthrough single, “Home” and joined him on tour in between her studies as a nursing student.
The now 24-year-old Phillips recently wrapped up a long North American tour in support of his latest album, Behind the Light and will hit the road again starting Jan. 30 with international dates in Canada and South Africa.
