Fans everywhere were pleasantly surprised when American Idol Season 11 alums Jessica Sanchez and DeAndre Brackenstick revealed they are dating after keeping it under wraps for a while.

Turns out, Jessica had a thing for DeAndre before the two ever got together!

In a new interview with Newsday, she revealed that she and DeAndre “were always best friends on the show" before becoming a romantic item. “I always had a little crush on him, but this happened out of nowhere,” she admitted.

Things seem to be going well for the newly paired lovebirds. DeAndre even said he’d be totally content to sing back-up for his girlfriend on her own tour.

Are they too cute or what?
