Back of Jessica Simpson Is Engaged — See Her Diamond Ring! Jessica Simpson's rep confirms to us that she and boyfriend Eric Johnson are engaged, after he apparently popped the question on Thursday! She showed off her sparkly new accessory during a mall appearance for the Jessica Simpson Collection in Kansas yesterday. Jessica and Eric have been inseparable since they began dating in May and they've been all about flaunting their love and traveling together, even celebrating Jessica's 30th with a PDA-filled trip to Italy in July. The news comes just a week after her ex Nick Lachey announced his engagement to longtime girlfriend Vanessa Minnillo, though Jessica has been public about showing her support for Nick, and now she has her own exciting news to celebrate. The "thrilled" singer also just released her holiday single and will be on the road with Eric to promote her album in the coming weeks. Congratulations to Jessica and Eric!

I think he tried to put some thought in creating this ring for her, but it is really not a very attractive ring. Oh well, as long as they are happy. jenwils 6 years Love #11's post. This will never last. amandachalynn 6 years *Oh, and I was not pregnant when we got engaged! amandachalynn 6 years I actually like the ring. Not everyone hates yellow gold and rubies! I think most celeb rings are tacky and are just for showing off the fact that you're getting married. Maybe this one has some meaning to it. For the record, My hubby and I started dating in July, we were engaged by December, and married the following March. His divorce was finalized in September. They had been separated for three years before filing. Anyway, that was all 6 years ago, and things just keep getting better. I had three other friends get married around the same time, all had been with their guy for at least a year, and two out of the three are now divorced. I'm not really a fan of Simpson, I think she over sings (I am a singer, so don't get on me for being talentless if you're a fan) and she plays the ditzy card too much. I just think that you can never tell what a relationship is like from the outside! jaan_black 6 years ...if she's a Leo, she's the dumbest f****** Leo in history...we're a lot of things but ditzy isn't one of them....far from it actually, more like controlling b***** (Madonna, J-Lo, Halle Berry) etc etc Raychell 6 years Allie Gator , you are hilarious. The ring is not my favorite but good luck to both Jessica and Nick with their separate engagements. wicca_08 6 years I agree; everything was very timely. Is she still bitter? Hope not. Wish them happiness. jaan_black 6 years hands down, the most desperate b**** on the planet....wonder why Joe chose such a dated, fugly @$$ ring...I know Eric can't afford a happy meal so I won't blame that on him...and a mere week later - jealous much?...by the time Nick and Vanessa start a family, Jessica will be twice divorced and dating Ashlee's bulldog dancing-nancy 6 years @#52 I'm considered a hater but have inform you it wasn't Angelina who bragged about having sex in the limo, it was her then husband BBT. Why Angelina, Julia and Jennifer are even mentioned on this thread is a mystery to me. Also, Jessica's engagement ring is beyond FUG and I bet they never get married. kellymare 6 years Jessica Simpson is too materialistic. She also won't take her relationships seriously.
