'Idol' Contestant's Older Man -- That's Her Fiance!

1/28/2011 6:11 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

"American Idol" hopeful Jackie Wilson isn't just dating the CONSIDERABLY older gentleman she was smooching on "Idol" last night -- they are getting married!

American Idol Jackie Wilson
Turns out Jackie, 28,  and Phil Martin, 52, hooked up in May 2010 ... and got engaged in October. Sources tell us the two are like "high school sweethearts" -- except when he graduated high school, she was six years away from being born!

We're told they had to push back their wedding date because of "Idol," but hope to get hitched in Napa in June.

I think he lied about his age. the man looks as if he is in his sixties. I may be wrong, he may just look older. But the fact is if they have children, he probably won't be there to see them grow up. This girl can actually sing, so if she goes far on Idol, this relationship probably won't last.

Hello, this stuff has been happening forever. I'm 54 and my husband of 7 years (so far) is 32. It is BECAUSE of shared interests that love happens, not because people are born on a certain date.

That guy is NOT 52. At least 62 is more like it.
