Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson’s rep confirms that the two are tying the knot.
A rep told People that the singer, 30, and NFL player, 31, are officially engaged.
“Yes, we are excited to confirm that they are engaged!” the rep says.
The couple were introduced by friends and began dating in May. Since then they’ve been spotted together.
Simpson recently told People that she and her beau plan to spend Thanksgiving together.
“We’re all gonna be in New York. I’m gonna be on a [Macy's parade] float. It’s not always the best way to spend a Thanksgiving, but it’s a great way to celebrate. So, maybe I’ll just have all families on the float,” Simpson said.
Of course, news of Simpson’s engagement follows that of ex-husband Nick Lachey’s engagement to Vanessa Minillo. Rumors flew that Simpson was “deeply saddened” by her ex-husband’s engagement (read more).
Simpson and Lachey were married in October 2002 and divorced in 2006. Lachey and Minnillo reportedly started dating just months after his divorce from Simpson was finalized.
Last month, Simpson excitedly told People how great her relationship with Johnson is, saying, “This is just normal, thank God. He’s very, very supportive. [I] couldn’t ask for a better man in my life right now.”
When asked if Johnson was the one, Simpson replied, “I never go to that because I already went there, so, I’m not gonna jinx my own self. He’s the one for me right now! I’m very happy, I’m in a great place and if right now could last forever, I’d take it.”
Congratulations to the happy couple, but please, no Newlyweds repeat.
