Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson Are Engaged

Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson Are Engaged-photo

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.

    Me and my husband got married 6 month after meeting and tomorrow is our 20th wedding anniversary My parents got engaged two weeks after they met, and they have been married for almost 24 years now. So sure, there are relationships that work out just fine, but I think that's the exception, not the rule. I'd be happy for her if they spend the rest of their lives together, but I seriously doubt it.

    Uhh, everyone know that It's physically impossible to fall in love with a woman that you've been dating for less than 1 year. It's also physically impossible to get a girl pregnant if you don't make eye contact.

    Getting engaged after five months of dating? Seriously? That's gonna be a long, happy marriage... And by "long" I mean six months tops and by "happy" I mean ending miserably. Me and my husband got married 6 month after meeting and tomorrow is our 20th wedding anniversary

    Why is everyone so rude? I dated my husband for 4 months and then we got engaged. We were married 3 short weeks later, (and no, I was not pregnant) and we have been happily married for 8 years. When you know, you know. Who are we to judge. We just may be surprised.

    After everything Jessica Simpson has been through in her romantic life since Nick, it would be nice to see her finally get it right and find lasting love. But seriously? getting engaged 2 days after her ex, to some guy she's dated for 5 or 6 months, for most of which he was still married to another woman? I feel really mean, but this is such an obvious screw-up that it's hilarious.

I don't think it's a coincidence that this happened right after Nick and Vanessa announced their engagement. Methinks Johnson was put under a lot of pressure these past few days.

    Eric may be a Yale graduate, but she sure isn't! He broke up with his wife last January, and the divorce was final in Oct. of this year!?! Craziness, as always with Jessica. We should get another reality show to document when they WERE together. LOL
