Phillips revealed his engagement news on Facebook, writing, “My best Christmas surprise is happening. We’re engaged yall! @HannahBlackwell!”


Blackwell later took to Instagram with a picture of her ring and a homemade ornament from 1995. “I’ve been dreaming of this for over 20 years, ” she captioned the picture. ” I’ve been dreaming of this guy for just that long. Overwhelmed with happiness.”

Days after the proposal, Blackwell admitted that she still couldn’t believe that she was engaged to Phillips, who got his big break on American Idol. 


Phillips and Blackwell have been together since before his winning run on American Idol  in 2012. They met while volunteering at the same women and children’s center.
