London (ANI): Jessica Simpson and NFL football player Eric Johnson
are engaged after just seven months of dating. The news comes less
than two weeks after her ex-husband Nick Lachey announced his
engagement to long-time girlfriend Vanessa Minnillo, reports the
“They are thrilled!" Simpson's spokesperson said, adding that
the couple became engaged late last week. This will be the second
wedding for Simpson, who split from Nick in 2005 after three years
of marriage. Simpson filed for divorce from the former 98 Degrees
singer citing irreconcilable differences.
But she eventually moved on, enjoying high-profile romances with
singer John Mayer - who later said she was like 'sexual napalm' in
bed - and Dallas Cowboy Tony Romo. Simpson and Johnson began dating
in May while he was estranged from his first wife, stylist Keri
Johnson. Their divorce was finalised last month.
The 'Dukes of Hazzard" star recently gushed about her athlete
beau, who has played for the San Francisco 49ers and the New
Orleans Saints. “This is just normal, thank God," she said. “He's
very, very supportive. [I] couldn't ask for a better man in my life
right now," she said. As for her newly-engaged ex-husband, she
insisted last week: “I couldn''t be more happy for Nick."
