William Michael Morgan and Jennifer Wayne have called it quits.

The two have ended their engagement, announcing on Friday via their respective social media sites that they had gone their separate ways.

“William and I have called off our engagement,” Wayne, 35, tweeted. “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, posted a similar status on his Facebook page.

The couple got engaged in December and shortly after, the “I Met a Girl” singer sat down with PEOPLE Now to dish on all the details on his surprise proposal to the granddaughter of legendary actor John Wayne.

“I don’t plan much,” Morgan said at the time. “If you ask her, she’ll tell you flat out, I’m not a planner. I just go with it.”

“We had a big bottle of Dom Perignon, bottle of wine, went to a big old nice steak dinner, and we had the hotel right on the ocean,” Morgan, whose single had recently topped the charts, said. “God couldn’t have put it any better for me and I just asked her.”

He added: “Surprisingly, she said ‘Yes.'”

Morgan has a 1-year-old daughter, Presley, from a previous relationship.

Wayne is a member of the country trio Runaway June, whose song “Lipstick” hit the Top 30 earlier this year.
