Season 8 "American Idol" finalist Allison Iraheta has married her Halo Circus bandmate Matthew Hager, Matthew has confirmed to Yahoo!'s Reality Rocks. "Best thing I've ever done," says Allison's happy new groom.

News that Allison and Matthew quietly eloped back in January broke this Tuesday, via The Hollywood Reporter. Allison and Matthew's Halo Circus played their first online performance ever in February, for Yahoo! Music, but made no mention of their very recent nuptials at that time.

Allison was only 16 years old when she competed on "American Idol," so it may be hard to imagine the goofy pink-haired rocker as a married lady. But she's 21 now, and obviously all grown up. Her new husband, a multi-instrumentalist and producer who's worked with Mandy Moore, the Backstreet Boys, Duran Duran, Scott Weiland, and many others, is a bit older than her — THR reports that he graduated from the Berklee College of Music in 1991 — but the two seem extremely well-matched, both personally and professionally.

Congrats to the newlyweds, who can be seen making beautiful music together in the exclusive videos below!
