Danny Gokey Is Engaged, to Be Married in January
Danny and his fiancée ask for donations to be made to foundation in the name of Danny's late wife.
We thought Danny Gokey had a little extra spring in his step backstage at this year's Country Weekly fashion show, and now, we think we know why.
Danny's girlfriend, Leyicet Peralta, was with him that day, and now comes news that Danny and Leyicet are engaged, with a wedding next month in the works.
Danny announced the engagement through the charity Sophia's Heart Foundation, named for Danny's wife, who passed away three years ago. Sophia had a heart for helping children, and in making the announcement, Danny and Leyicet asked well-wishers to make donations to the charity in lieu of wedding gifts.
"We are so thankful for so many of the blessings God has given us. It is our desire to see homeless children and families be kept together and lifted back on their feet through the help of Sophia’s Heart. We love and appreciate you all," the couple said in a statement.
