“My best Christmas surprise is happening,” Phillip wrote on Facebook. “We’re engaged yall! @HannahBlackwell!”
Phillip also shared an adorable photo with his bride-to-be Hannah. She showed off her stunning diamond engagement ring. Nice work, Phillip!
Phillip popping the question to Hannah is a long time coming. The couple has been together since before he shot to superstardom on American Idol. Phillip and Hannah met while volunteering at a women and children’s shelter in 2009, according to E! News. They grew up in the same hometown of Leesburg, Georgia.
Hannah couldn’t help but share her own excitement over the engagement. She captioned a photo of her ring on Instagram, “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.”
That’s just about the most romantic thing we’ve ever read.
Sorry ladies, but Phillip is off the market for good now! He’s found his “home” with Hannah.
