42808: "American Idol" Contestant Kristy Lee Cook Engaged

While Kristy Lee Cook’s rendition of Mariah Carey’s “Forever” may not have been a hit with the judges on American Idol, the sentimental lyrics certainly struck a chord with the singer’s beau, Andrew Dobner, who knelt and asked the budding performer to be his bride on April 16, 2008. The ousted contestant later admitted that the couple had kept news of the original proposal, which took place in a sauna on March 15th, a cherished secret.

According to Entertainment Tonight, the seventh place finalist is now sporting a marquis cut diamond engagement ring, purchased at King Jewelers. Although still mulling over potential “I do” dates, the Selma, Oregon-born songstress confided that she might walk down the aisle in June 2009.
