Meet Katy Allen, the beautiful wife of Kris Allen, who was crowned the American Idol 2009 winner last night. See photos, video and read a biography of Katy below.
Katy Allen, Kris Allen’s wife, is certainly beaming with pride for her husband this morning. The beautiful blonde from Arkansas had been present every week of the American Idol competition to cheer her husband on. She will not be joining Kris on the American Idol tour this summer, but will attend select shows. Kris said, “She’s going to have her own life for the summer. But we’ll be keeping in touch a lot.”
After winning the American Idol title last night, Kris Allen was asked what Katy thought of his win:
“We actually didn’t say anything,” he revealed. “We were just hugging each other and we’re just like, uh, we can be married.We haven’t been able to be married for the last nine months,” he said. “She’s amazing. She’s just the coolest chick in the world. Hopefully, me and my wife will get to spend some more time together.”
