Country music singer-songwriter Lauren Alaina and boyfriend Alex Hopkins met in their late teens and have been going strong for nearly six years. The couple recently announced their official engagement and suddenly boyfriend Alex Hopkins becomes Lauren Alaina’s fiance.
“Everybody thought (we were going to get engaged), Alaina shared with Taste of Country, referring to the recent beach vacation she took with her love and documented via social media.
“Everyone asked us if that was going to happen. I don’t know!” she confessed. “We have definitely talked about marriage, obviously. When you have been together for six years, it’s bound to come up at some point.”
Although marriage may very well be in the couple’s future, Lauren isn’t in any sort of rush to tie the knot.
“We are 23,” Alaina sagely pointed out. “We are pretty young. My parents got married really young and that didn’t work out, but Alex’s parents got married really young and they have been together for 30 years or something crazy, so I guess different strokes for different folks.”
No matter the timeline, the country star knows that Alex is something really special.
“He is my best friend. He’s like an actual angel on earth. He’s the most attractive man I have ever seen. Like every time I look at him — I mean, the older we get, the more attractive he gets and I’m starting to be like, ‘Glad we met at 17 because you are way cuter than me,'” the Georgia native hilariously quipped.
Right now, Lauren is focused on her stint as a special music guest on Jason Aldean’s current High Noon Neon Tour. Check out where you can catch her out on the road below!
