Making for quite the whirlwind romance, Jessica Simpson and boyfriend Eric Johnson are officially engaged to be married!
Confirming the good news, a rep for Miss Simpson stated, “Yes, we are excited to confirm that they are engaged!”
The wedding plans come after the “Dukes of Hazzard” actress began dating the former NFL player back in May of this year – with the two having been together for a short six months.
The timing of the pair’s engagement also comes on the heels of Jessica’s ex husband Nick Lachey’s engagement news to Vanessa Minnillo.
While no wedding date has been divulged, Jessica and Eric plan on spending Thanksgiving together in NYC, as Simpson said, “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.”
Fresh off of her big relationship news, Jessica Simpson made an in-store appearance at Dillard’s Oak Park in Overland Park, Kansas on Saturday (November 13).
The “Do You Know” singer had quite the smile on her face as she celebrated her Jessica Simpson Collection and showed off her brand new engagement ring.
Previously talking to USA Today about her former NFL playing fiance, Simpson said, “He definitely makes me very happy. He brings out a lot of light in me and makes me very comfortable being who I am. It’s nice to be with somebody who praises you for the right reasons.”
