Alongside three black-and-white photos of the couple, the "What Mattered Most" musician recounted meeting Alex "six months ago" and forming a bond on their first date.

"Since then, we have been building our relationship and getting to know one another without a big public announcement," wrote Herndon. "It was important to each of us that we be able to do this privately, and it has been an amazing journey."

He continued, "After all this time, I have met the person I know I'm gonna spend the rest of my life with. Alex is a brilliant artist and craftsman who restores mid-century furniture and makes stained glass art. He will also be starting work on his MBA soon. He's a smartie, y'all — and I can't wait for all of you to get to know him."

Concluding the note, Herndon said they're "planning a wedding" set to occur "later this year" and told his followers, "Here's to life, love, and wellness! We'll see y'all soon."

Herndon was previously romantically linked to Matt Collum and announced their breakup via Instagram in October 2021. "After 11 beautiful years together, I want to let you know that Matt and I have decided to go our separate ways as life partners. However, we are committed to remaining lifelong friends, and I am confident that will be the case," he wrote at the time.
