Crooner Philip Phillips is making a home of his very own with fiancée Hannah Blackwell! The winner of American Idol season 11 popped the question to his longtime girlfriend and revealed that she did indeed say yes on both Facebook and Twitter with the caption, "My best Christmas surprise is happening. We're engaged yall!"
Phillips kept his engagement ring choice traditional yet chic by presenting Blackwell with a solitaire diamond with a classic gold band. She showed a closer picture of the stunner in an Instagram post which read, "I've been dreaming of this for over 20 years. I've been dreaming of this guy for just that long. Overwhelmed with happiness."
Back in 2012, the "Home" singer chatted with E! about his kidney reconstructive surgery and how much Blackwell was there for him through it all. "She was so excited for me and she helped me out a lot through this." He continued, "Hopefully she'll be able to come on tour with me. It'd be cool to have her there. She's supported me throughout all of this. I love her to death!"
The couple fell in love long before Phillips was a singing sensation as they met in 2009 while volunteering at a shelter for women and children. Since his ascent into stardom, he has garnered World Music Awards, Billboard Music Awards, and American Music Awards nominations.
We cannot wait to see how their wedding plans unfold!
