An excited Lee DeWyze told People: “Jonna is a Disney freak. They were playing love songs on the boat and I got down on my knee and asked her. I had a speech prepared but it all went out the window so I just asked her. She started crying and I said, ‘Is that a yes?’” Though the pair have only been dating eight months, Lee was certain that Jonna Walsh was “the one” as he went on to say: “When you know, you know. We both feel that way. We don’t need to be together 20 years before we figure it out.”
