Jessica Simpson Had to Press Pause to Get Her Proposal
Jessica Simpson says fiance Eric Johnson picked what might have been an inopportune time to propose — in the middle of her favorite TV show. Thank God for TiVo!
The singer tells SIRIUS XM’s Morning Mash Up she was watching TV when Johnson “made me pause it.” Simpson said, “I was like, ‘It’s a really good part in Parenthood … it’s an emotional fight right now,'” to which Eric replied ‘I know, but I just got to show you something'” and he pulled out the ring.
Simpson explains Johnson hid the $150,000 Neil Lane ruby sparkler in a secret hiding place: a shoe. “He had the ring in his shoe at my house somewhere,” she said.
As for her family, Simpson tells the radio show Johnson got everyone’s blessing before popping the question. “He had talked to my mom and dad and my sister three weeks before he asked me,” she says. “I can’t believe all the Simpsons kept a secret.”
