Ty Herndon revealed that he’s planning a wedding this year!

The country singer-songwriter announced on Thursday (February 9) that he and his now-fiancé, Alex, met for their first date about six months ago. The couple has been steering clear of the public eye while dating, and now, Herndon said he he has “met the person I know I’m gonna spend the rest of my life with.” Herndon shared a few heartwarming photos with Alex, taken by Nashville music photographer and director Jeremy Ryan, as he introduced his fiancé.

“Well y’all, I have a little news to share — actually some big news,” Herndon said. “The last six months God has showed up and showed out. Never in a million years would I have imagined meeting someone who would bring so much love and light into my heart. Alex and I met six months ago and had our first date. Since then, we have been building our relationship and getting to know one another without a big public announcement. It was important to each of us that we be able to do this privately, and it has been an amazing journey. After all this time, I have met the person I know I’m gonna spend the rest of my life with.

“Alex is a brilliant artist and craftsman who restores mid-century furniture and makes stained glass art. He will also be starting work on his MBA soon. He’s a smartie, y’all — and I can’t wait for all of you to get to know him,” Hendon said. “Today, we are excited to let you know that we are planning a wedding! That’s right — we’re getting hitched later this year! Here’s to life, love, and wellness! We’ll see y’all soon.”
