Jason Aldean Engaged to Brittany Kerr

Jason Aldean proposed to his girlfriend Brittany Kerr on Wednesday (Sept. 24) at the San Diego Zoo, his spokesperson has confirmed.

Kerr is a former American Idol contestant from the 2012 season and a former LadyCat, NBA’s Charlotte Bobcats basketball cheerleaders. Her Instagram bio now describes her simply as “Lucky in love, Animal Lover, Gypsy Life, Roll Tide.”

On Thursday, Kerr Instagrammed a picture of herself at the zoo feeding a sea lion in jean cutoffs, a white tank top and black booties, but no visible sign of an engagement ring. “My man did it again. Today was amazing,” she wrote, without any specific mention of the marriage proposal.

The couple has been openly dating since the summer of 2014 when Aldean brought Kerr as his date to the CMT Music Awards in June. Prior to that, Kerr posted her first photo of the two of them together in May and continues to share photos and videos of the life they are building together.
