Lee DeWyze, 25, winner of American Idol in 2010, is engaged to his girlfriend of eight months, model and actress Jonna Walsh, 26. The couple met when Walsh appeared in the music video for Dewyze's song, "Sweet Serendipity," last October.

Dewyze, who just completed his national tour, popped the question over a glass of champagne while on board a private yacht in Disney World. "Jonna is a Disney freak," DeWyze told People. "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?'"

Despite the fact that they have not even dated a full year, DeWyze expressed zero doubt about Walsh being the girl for him. “When you know, you know,” he said. “We both feel that way. We don’t need to be together 20 years before we figure it out.” The young couple is planning a ceremony for the fall of 2012.
