Jessica Simpson Is Engaged, Source Says
Not to be outdone by her ex Nick Lachey, Jessica Simpson got engaged last week.

Remember when Nick Lachey got engaged, like, a minute ago, and his ex Jessica Simpson was super sad? Well, now Jess has something to smile about – a source told Us magazine that she got engaged to her boyfriend, NFL free agent Eric Johnson, last week. Take that, Nick!
Jessica’s rep hasn’t confirmed the engagement yet, but she was spotted wearing big ruby and diamond ring on her left ring finger, and her dad/manager Joe Simpson posted a congratulatory message on his Twitter: “So very happy for Jess and Eric… may they have a lifetime of joy and happiness.” Yes, congrats for trying to outdo your ex, Jess!
Okay, okay, so maybe Jess and Eric’s engagement has nothing to do with Nick Lachey’s engagement to Vanessa Mannillo. After all, Jess did come out and say that she’s SO HAPPY FOR NICK, so, of course she was fine with it, right? Right??
Maybe… but she and Eric only met in May – while Eric was still married, by the way. Simpson even said recently, “I’ve definitely dreamed of being married my whole life and having children, so hopefully that’s in my future.” That sounds like someone with marriage on the brain!
No matter what the timing of this engagement means (or doesn’t mean) Jessica seems very happy, and we’re very happy for her. Just one bit of advice, Jess: don’t do a reality show with your new love! (PopEater)
