As the eighth season of American Idol premieres Tuesday, new judge Kara DioGuardi has some big news: She's getting hitched!

DioGuardi, 38, and Mike McCuddy, 34, were engaged Dec. 8 while on vacation in Mexico, DioGuardi's rep confirms to PEOPLE.

But don't expect wedding bells for the duo too soon. Adds the rep: "No wedding date has been planned."

So just who is Mike McCuddy? He's a former school teacher-turned-general-contractor. And, he's also a dad, according to a New York Times bio of DioGuardi, meaning she won't just be a new wife, she'll also be a new stepmom!
