Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson Are Engaged

By: / November 14, 2010

Just days after Jessica Simspon‘s ex-husband Nick Lachey announced he and girlfriend Vanessa Minnillo were tying the knot, Jessica and her new beau, Eric Johnson, are also planning to walk down the aisle.

UsMagazine.com is reporting first reported that 30-year-old songbird Simpson is indeed engaged according to their sources. Minutes later, Simpson’s rep confirmed the news to In Touch, stating that Jessica and Eric “are thrilled” about it.

Us reported that Jessica also “flashed a sizable ring on her left hand during an appearance at Dillard’s at Oak Park Mall in Kansas City.”

It was just last week that news broke of the engagement between Lachey and Minnillo, who have been dating since 2007. Lachey and Simpson ended their marriage in 2005 after three years and one reality show.

Simpson and Johnson have been dating for about five months, beginning their relationship over the summer. In August, Simpson made somewhat of an official announcement of their couple-dom by posting a cute kissing photo on Twitter.
