Beautiful things are happening for American Idol season 11 winner Phillip Phillips. For Christmas, Phillips proposed to his longtime girlfriend Hannah Blackwell and she said yes! The ring is a show-stopper, and their love story is so endearing and sweet.


Phillip and Hannah met back in 2009 when they were just teenagers and both were volunteering at a women's and children's shelter. Melt my heart! Hannah supported him all through his competition on Ameriacn Idol and after he won in 2012, he stayed true to his lady love who he said is his support system.

On his Facebook and Twitter, Phillip wrote:

My best Christmas surprise is happening. We're engaged yall!

And we're so happy for y'all!

Hannah posted a slightly blurry photo of the ring but we can tell it's a gorgeous solitaire. She's happy! He's happy! Happy in love! Hannah said that Phillip was more nervous to ask her out on their first date than he was to propose -- back then he was a bit awkward, she confessed. It seems the guy has certainly worked up his confidence. He's not only a winner of Idol (and at love), his songs Home and Gone, Gone, Gone are so good and spent a lot of time at the top of the charts.

Now comes the big questions. Have they set a date and will they name their first born son Phillip? Phillip is named after his dad, so I'm thinking they may keep the tradition. Phillip Phillips III? No matter what -- I'm super happy for these two -- wishing them all the best.

What do you think of Hannah's ring?
