Former "American Idol" contestants Gabby Barrett and Cade Foehner are engaged

ABC/Image Group LAAmerican Idol isn't just good at finding singing talent -- it's apparently good at finding love matches, too.

Last season's winner Maddie Poppe is dating her runner-up Caleb Lee Hutchinson, and now two other former contestants are engaged.

Gabby Barrett, 19, and Cade Foehner, 22, confirmed to People that they are getting hitched. The proposal took place at the L.A. hotel where they first met while competing on Idol.

Cade says that while he has been thinking about proposing for a while, he actually hadn't planned on doing it that particular day. But the fact that they were in the same hotel made it seem like the perfect opportunity.

"My sister overnighted the ring to our church," Cade says.

The young couple hasn't set a date yet, but say they want to get married in "colder weather." And, of course, judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan will all be getting invites.

"The judges are like family to us," Gabby says. "Idol was the very beginning of our love story and we would love for all of our family to be there."

The only other Idol couple to get hitched are Diana DeGarmo, the runner-up from season three, and Ace Young, a contestant on season five.
