Jessica Simpson shared the happy news that she's marrying boyfriend Eric Johnson over the weekend, even giving a first glimpse of her ruby and diamond ring. Her family is overjoyed, however, others are wondering why Jess chose to make her statement one week after her ex-husband, Nick Lachey, announced his plans to wed to Vanessa Minnillo. Nick just weighed in on Jess's surprise, saying, "I will say the same thing I always say: I wish her the very best." Jessica and Eric apparently picked their engagement date for a special reason, but we're wondering what you make of the closely timed developments. So, tell us — do you think Nick and Jessica coincidentally made similar announcements, or is there something up on her end?
