Lauren Alaina is engaged! The American Idol alum made the announcement Saturday (July 21) in an Instagram post that reads, “Being yours forever has a nice “RING” to it. #HoppilyEverHopkins@_alex_hopkins WE ARE ENGAGED. EEEK.”

Alaina’s new finance is Alex Hopkins, her boyfriend of six years. In an interview with Taste of Country earlier this year, Alaina discussed her relationship with Hopkins.

“We are pretty young. My parents got married really young and that didn’t work out, but Alex’s parents got married really young and they have been together for 30 years or something crazy, so I guess different strokes for different folks,” Alaina said before adding, “I love him. He is my best friend. He’s like an actual angel on earth. He’s the most attractive man I have ever seen. Like every time I look at him — I mean, the older we get, the more attractive he gets and I’m starting to be like, ‘Glad we met at 17 because you are way cuter than me.'”

Over the course of their six year relationship, the couple has shared numerous swoon-worthy photos to confirm that their relationship is here to stay!

Congratulations to Lauren and Alex!
