It looks like Carrie Underwood isn’t the only American Idol alum who will soon be walking down the aisle. Her good pal, Kellie Pickler will soon be a bride herself! According to People magazine, Kellie Pickler and her songwriter beau, Kyle Jacobs, got engaged on June 15th. Keep reading for all the romantic proposal details…

After over two years of dating, Kellie Pickler and Kyle Jacobs are getting hitched! The American Idol alum is engaged and shared the romantic details with People magazine. The proposal took place on a Florida Beach on June 15th, the birthday of Kellie’s late grandmother and guardian, Faye. Although the day is typically “sad and hard” for Kellie Pickler, she says, ”It turned out to be the most amazing day of my life. My whole world changed. We both feel like we got my grandmother’s blessing.”

At the end of a stroll on the beach, songwriter Kyle Jacobs had arranged a blanket, candles, and champagne for the proposal. Kellie Pickler says it was better than she could’ve imagined. “I remember saying to Kyle, ‘Baby it’s like I’m dreaming – but if this isn’t real, I’m going to be very upset!’” she says. After the proposal, Kyle Jacobs says, “Afterward, we just held each other and had the most beautiful prayer. We had a little champagne and talked and laughed and cried.”

Kellie Pickler says she’s grateful to Kyle Jacobs for teaching her about love and healthy relationships. After a tumultuous upbringing, the American Idol star says, “Kyle took away all my fear of marriage and has shown me the way love is supposed to be. I’m in the happiest place I’ve ever been.”

The pair have yet to announce a wedding date, but Kellie Pickler says she plans to have her dad, Clyde (sober now for a year) walk her down the aisle. And she’s certainly expecting to gain some wisdom about wedding planning from her country singer pal, Carrie Underwood. ”We’re all just happy for each other,” Pickler says. “I’m sure we’ll be having some girl talk and we’ll share ideas. We just keep joking about how there must be something in the water!”
