Bridal Idol! Allison Iraheta, who came in fourth on season eight of American Idol, is married, according to The Hollywood Reporter. As revealed on the site's Idol Worship blog, the singer eloped with her Halo Circus bandmate Matthew Hager in January and has been keeping the nuptials under wraps ever since.

Iraheta, 21, first met Hager through her friend and guitarist David Immerman. (Hager is a multi-platinum producer who has worked with the likes of Duran Duran, Scott Weiland, Mandy Moore, and the Backstreet Boys.) The three started writing songs together -- and the rest is history.

"Our souls were patched together in this project," the pink-haired star told THR in April. "It was so honest. We felt like a family, so we continued to write as a band."
