Jason Aldean, country star and subject of Billboard's most recent cover story, proposed to his girlfriend Brittany Kerr on Tuesday at the San Diego Zoo.

Aldean ended his previous marriage to start a relationship with Kerr, a former American Idol contestant (she auditioned for season 11). This earned the singer some negative attention. He complained recently to Billboard: "I could go post something on my page right now that says, 'Hey, we just donated $5 million to a children's cancer research center,' and somebody would get on there and go, 'You're an asshole cheater.'"

Kerr posted an Instagram photo of herself at the zoo with the caption, "My man did it again. Today was amazing." Aldean's rep confirmed the engagement to People magazine.
