Alex Hopkins is on his way to marry his beautiful fiance!
Alex's long-time girlfriend, Lauren Alaina shared the news of the couple's engagement on 21st July 2018 via an Instagram post in which she wrote,
"Being yours forever has a nice 'RING' to it. #HoppilyEverHopkins @_alex_hopkins WE ARE ENGAGED. EEEK,"
Lauren had earlier expressed that she was not ready to make a long-term commitment; however, it seems like she has finally accepted Alex as the right one for her.
The runner-up of American Idol Season 10 further attached a picture of the pair sharing a passionate kiss which was later re-shared by Alex. In the photo, where Lauren could be seen flaunting her diamond ring, Alex identified her as "future Mrs. Hopkins."

The pair's decision to get engaged comes after dating for more than five years since both of them were teenagers. The couple, of same age 23, has been dating since they were 17 years old.
Lauren mentioned via an Instagram post on 4 July 2017 that she saw Alex playing volleyball on the beach with his friends. The singer explained that it was her best decision to date the super hot guy, who is now her fiance and husband-to-be.
'American Idol' Alum, Lauren is glad that the couple began their romance at 17 as she thinks Alex is "way cuter than her." She further explained that she would have no shot with Alex if they didn't commence their relationship in the teenage years.
Alex shared the first selfie of the two as a couple on 14 October 2016 mentioning that he asked Lauren to be his girlfriend on the same day before four years. Further, Alex revealed that he was way too nervous initially and still panicked after dating for four years.

The couple is set to get married soon but has not made up their mind regarding the date and location of the wedding.
Lauren, who has been taking a casual approach to her engagement said in an interview with Taste of Country,
"We have definitely talked about marriage, obviously. When you have been together for six years, it’s bound to come up at some point.”
Alex, who wants to be an actor or a model in the future, has acted in several TV commercials. He walked the ramp in his first fashion show in early July 2018.
