Country singer William Michael Morgan has announced the end of his engagement to Jennifer Wayne, the granddaughter of classic film star John Wayne, and a member of country trio Runaway June.
“William and I have called off our engagement,” Wayne, 35, tweeted Friday. “We came to the mutual agreement that this is what’s best for both of us right now. Thank you for your support and respecting our privacy during this time.”
Morgan, 23, has a one-year-old daughter, Presley, from a previous relationship. He proposed to Wayne in December, when his song “I Met a Girl” was at the top of the charts, with a bottle of Dom Perignon in their hotel room overlooking the ocean. “God couldn’t have put it any better for me, and I just asked her,” he told People Now soon after.
