Updated On 16 May, 2019 Published On

Lauren Alaina has already moved on! It's been four months since the American Idol alum announced her split with Alex Hopkins and she is now dating a new boyfriend, comedian John Crist.

The singer, 24, confirmed the relationship news with her new partner during an appearance on The Bobby Bones Show on Wednesday, May 15.

She said on the show, "This is my boyfriend."

She added,

I responded to one of his Instagram videos. I said, ‘Haha, you’re funny.’ … He said, ‘I too grew up performing in church in Georgia. That was his first response to me! I was like, ‘Does this guy know everything about me?

Crist then clarified that he actually looked up the songstress online before sending a reply to her DM.

He said,

I didn’t want to be like, ‘Who are you?’ so I looked up her Wikipedia page. Looking back, it was the wrong move.

As we previously reported, the New Boyfriend singer and Alex released a since-deleted joint statement on Instagram on January 21 to announce that they had called it quits.

The former couple began dating in October 2012 and eventually announced their engagement in July 2018 with adorable photos from the proposal on the social media platform.

Alongside a kissing picture of the pair, she wrote at the time, "Being yours forever has a nice 'RING' to it. WE ARE ENGAGED."
