Jessica Simpson, 30, and NFL player Eric Johnson, 31, got engaged last week after dating
for less than a year.
“So very happy for Jess and Eric,” Simpson’s father, Joe, posted on Twitter Sunday night. “May they have a lifetime of joy and happiness.”
Just days earlier, news broke that ex-husband Nick Lachey was engaged to marry his live-in girlfriend, Vanessa Minnillo.
Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson began dating in May after being set up by mutual friends. If all goes well this will be the second marriage for both; Johnson was previously married to stylist Keri Johnson.
Jessica Simpson opened up in recent interviews about her new lease on life, hinting that she’d love to try planning a wedding again: “I am from the South, so I’ve definitely dreamed of being married my whole life and having children, so hopefully that’s in my future.
