Lauren Alaina and her high school sweetheart Alex Hopkins have called off their engagement. The 24-year-old American Idol alum took to Instagram on Monday night to inform fans that the two had simply grown apart. "While we still have love for each other, we’ve grown into very different people over the last six years," she said in a statement. "We are now in a place where we are each looking forward to starting our own fresh, new chapters of our lives." Alaina added, "We both love and respect each other and hope you all will do the same. This has not been an easy decision, but we both feel it is the right decision." The country singer and Hopkins got engaged last summer and were together for six years.
