Ace Young and Diana Degarmo recently played out their engagement in front of millions on the season 11 finale of American Idol. Read more to learn the unique circumstances under which the happy couple first met.
How did you meet your significant other? Chances are, you were fully clothed. This was not the case for Ace Young and Diana Degarmo. This couple is currently one of the hottest in Hollywood, thanks, in part, to an adorable proposal that was featured on Wednesday night’s American Idol season 11 finale. Their hot-item status is fitting, given the young couple’s equally sizzling start.
Ace Young and Diana Degarmo first met while performing in the Broadway production of Hair. In Young’s recent interview with Rumorfix, it was quickly revealed that, long the big Ace Young proposal, the romance began while the two were on the stage…and stark naked. “When we took off our clothes in the show, we were facing each other. She was looking at me and she was taking off her outfit and she says, ‘You good? You’re not looking are you?’ I said, ‘Nope. You’re not looking are you?’”
Young also admits to having been a filthy liar. “I had already looked up and down and I was sold from the moment I saw her.” So, yes, the romantic relationship may have begun with a lie, but it also began with sparks that could not be tamed. And if Degarmo had any reservations about her suitor, she clearly had discarded with them by the time he brought her on the American Idol stage for the proposal of the year. In his eloquent little proposal speech, Young confessed, “I want to make this last forever and I will do anything in my power to have the most imaginable and amazing life together if you will have me.”
It may have started as birthday suit love, but if Ace Young and Diana Degarmo have anything to say about it, it’s a love that’s going to last.
