'American Idol' Alum and Georgia Native Lauren Alaina Is Engaged
The couple started dating as teenagers.
It's official, Lauren Alaina is getting married! The 23-year-old country singer, who won the ACM award for New Female Vocalist of the Year, is engaged to her longtime boyfriend, Alex Hopkins. Yesterday, the Rossville, Georgia native and American Idol Season 10 runner-up took to instagram to share the happy news.
The couple have dated since 2012, and have long been social media darlings for their affectionate relationship. "July 5th, 2012 this nervous 17 year old boy would have done anything to make that pretty girl sitting next to him smile," Hopkins wrote of their beginnings in 2016. "He never could have imagined that on October 14th he would somehow work up the courage to ask her to be his girlfriend, and for whatever reason she would say yes. 4 years later she still makes me nervous, and I still do absolutely anything to see her smile. Happy anniversary @laurenalaina. This is just the beginning. I love you!"
