Former American Idol contestant Brittany Kerr is engaged to country music superstar Jason Aldean!
Aldean’s rep confirmed the engagement and Kerr took to her personal Instagram account to share the exciting news.
The photo shows the couple sharing a passionate kiss with Kerr’s diamond shining brightly into the camera.
“We’ve been on cloud nine the past few days!!” Kerr captioned the photo. “My heart has never been more full of happiness and love… Can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with this man.”
“So many blessings and memories are in our future and SO thankful I get to share them with him,” she added. “Thanks for all the support and kind words y’all have given us #love #foreverandever #itdidnthappenatthezoo #happyhappyhappy.”
So far, details of the proposal have not been revealed.
Aldean was first linked to Kerr in 2012 when he was spotted kissing her while he was still married to his wife Jessica Ussery, whom he has two young daughters with.
Aldean has repeatedly defended himself and his relationship with Kerr since he and Ussery divorced in 2013. “It has been two years of this [expletive] — get over it, already!” he told Billboard magazine. “I’m not blaming anybody. Obviously, a lot of that stuff is my own deal. But I could go post something on my page right now that says, ‘Hey, we just donated $5 million to a children’s cancer research center,’ and somebody would get on there and go, ‘You’re an [expletive] cheater.’”
“So sick of people judging me and @brittanylkerr over things they know nothing about,” he wrote on Instagram. “I have made mistakes but I am a better person because of it, and wouldnt change a thing. I’m happier than i have ever been, so thank u to all the people who support us. We are happy and life goes on. Its time to move on people. #aldeanarmy #oldnews #timetomoveon”
