Jessica Simpson is engaged to NFL player Eric Johnson!
I don’t know what the timeline is for engagements, but I know you probably shouldn’t get engaged right after your ex-husband does. It just looks, well, bad. But hey, Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson probably don’t care about Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo, right?
Pop singer Jessica Simpson and NFL player Eric Johnson got engaged Thursday and both People and Us Weekly have confirmed the news. The couple met in May after being set up by friends and have been on cloud 9 since. Hey, Hollywood moves fast…
Last month, Jessica Simpson spoke to People and said she was so inspired by Eric Johnson. She said, “This is just normal, thank God. He’s very, very supportive. [I] couldn’t ask for a better man in my life right now.” When asked if marriage is in her future, Jessica responded:
I never go to that because I already went there, so, I’m not gonna jinx myself. He’s the one for me right now! I’m very happy, I’m in a great place and if right now could last forever, I’d take it.
Good answer. But after 5 months, isn’t everyone happy?

I’m sure the Eric Johnson Jessica Simpson engagement wasn’t a deliberate attempt to one-up Nick Lachey, but how can you NOT think that? Timing is everything, Jess, and even if your engagement organically happened when it did, maybe you could have asked your boy to wait a little? But when it comes down to it, the engagement is about Eric Johnson and Jessica Simpson. So if they’re happy and they want to get married, who cares about timing?
