Lauren Alaina and her boyfriend Alex Hopkins have been together for quite a long time. She started dating him about a year after America Idol aired with Lauren and Scotty McCreery back in 2011. A 6-year relationship is quite a while. So, of course, they have been asked by family, friends, fans and the media about when they are going to make it official, even though they are both only 23.
She says “We’ve definitely talked about marriage, obviously. It’s bound to come up at some point [but] we’re pretty young. My parent’s got married really young and that didn’t work out, but Alex’s parents got married really young and they’ve been together for 30 years or something crazy, so I guess different stroked for different folks.”
Even after 6 years though, Lauren Alaina is still very much in love with Alex. She says “He’s the most attractive man I’ve ever seen. And the older we get, the more attractive he gets and I’m starting to be like, ‘I’m glad we met at 17 because you are way cuter than me’.'”
When the day comes thought they’ve made it clear that the wedding will be a big production and the marriage will be full of showbiz. Lauren says “He wants to be a model or actor, and he is already doing a lot of commercial work. You’re going to see him on commercials and be like “OMG, that’s ALEX.””
