Allison Iraheta is a married woman…
The 21-year-old Salvadoran American singer and American Idol finalist has married her Halo Circus bandmate Matthew Hager, her new husband has confirmed to Yahoo!‘s Reality Rocks.
“Best thing I’ve ever done,” says the new groom.
News that Iraheta and Hager quietly eloped back in January broke this Tuesday, via The Hollywood Reporter.
The couple’s Halo Circus played their first online performance ever in February, for Yahoo! Music, but made no mention of tying the knot at that time.
Iraheta was 16 years old when she competed on Idol, so it may be hard to picture the red-haired rocker as a married woman. But allgrown up now.
Her new husband, a multi-instrumentalist and producer who’s worked with Mandy Moore, the Backstreet Boys, Duran Duran, Scott Weiland, and others, is slightly older than her — THR reports that he graduated from the Berklee College of Music in 1991 — but the two seem extremely well-matched, both personally and professionally.
