Dancing With the Stars semifinalist and American Idol runner-up Lauren Alaina had big news for her fans this Thanksgiving week — she’s engaged to boyfriend Cam Arnold.

Here’s what you need to know:

On Nov. 19, on stage at the Grand Ole Opry, the singer announced her engagement to Arnold, who’s a bit of a mystery — and that’s how Alaina likes it. She told People in an interview that he was part of her personal life.

“This is the first time I’m showing Cameron to the world. It is and will remain a sacred part of my life. He keeps me grounded and gives me a bit of normal everyday life that I didn’t have before him. We’ve been together for two and a half years and are just getting started. I can’t wait to be Mrs. Cameron Scott Arnold. I’m so excited that everyone knows who he and we are. The best is yet to come,” said Alaina.

Adding that it just felt right to be the first to share the news on stage at the Opry, telling People, “It was a night I’ll never forget. I have to celebrate the best year of my life. I became a member of the Opry family in February, so I thought they should be the first to know that I was asked to be in another family as well.”

On stage at the event, she broke the news like this:

She later told People that Arnold wasn’t particularly comfortable coming on stage, but she wore him down because it was so important to her.

“He didn’t want that! He likes to stay in the shade. He said, “You’re not making me come out of there,” and I said, “You don’t get a picture in a circle. So — we negotiated and he came out for the picture,” the singer said, laughing. “This is the most important place in the world to me and he’s the most important person to me, so bringing them together was quite amazing.”

Alaina also announced the news on Instagram, writing: “BRIDE be damned y’all. My best friend asked me to marry him and I announced it to my favorite place on earth @opry. I didn’t know happiness and excitement like this existed. I can’t wait to be Mrs. Cameron Scott Arnold.”

In the comments, her family was quick to congratulate Dancing With the Stars and American Idol.

“Congratulations,” her Dancing With the Stars partner Gleb Savchenko wrote along with a party emoji.

Dancing With the Stars graduate and American Idol winner Jordin Sparks wrote, “CONGRATULATIONS LAUREN! YASS!”

Her American Idol season 10 co-star Paul McDonald wrote: “Yes!!!!! Congratulations!!! Love you both so much!”, and Season 10 finalist Pia Toscano wrote, “OMG!!! Congratulations!”

American Idol alum Katie Stevens wrote, “Congratulations Angel!!!!”

“Congratulations, beautiful one!” wrote per Lindsay Arnold.

Alaina’s “Beyond the Edge” co-star Colton Underwood wrote, “So excited for you.”

The Voice winner Cassadee Pope wrote: “Atta boy! So excited for you guys.”

Country singers Martina McBride, Natalie Stovall, Chris Lane, Jake Owen, Carly Pearce, Little Big Town and Lainey Wilson also left good wishes for the bride-to-be.

It is not yet clear when the wedding will take place. “Dancing With the Stars” just finished its 31st season – Alaina finished fourth in the 28th season with Savchenko. “American Idol” returns in spring 2023 for its 21st season.
