You all heard the Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson’s engagement news here first – yep! Jessica Simpson is engaged. The world’s biggest Chicken of the Sea fan is finally tying the knot with not-so-long-time beau, NFL player Eric Johnson.
Sure, it’s only been, like, three days, but come on Jess, we want the details on that kooky rock on your finger!
Check out Jessica Simpson’s engagement ring below!
Clearly buzzing from post-engagement bliss, Jessica Simpson flashed her sparkly Neil Lane engagement ring on the red carpet during an event in Kansas City.
And it’s not what you think. Her (2nd) engagement ring is ruby red and offset by diamonds. Kind of old fashioned and certainly not over the top blingy like, say her last engagement ring was.
Some say it looks like one of the Crown Jewels.
Before you start in with the theories on why Jessica Simpson went with such a funky celebrity engagement ring – read on. The ring color is the birthstone of the 30-year-old singer, who was born on July 10. It also symbolizes love and passion – which after only 5 months together, is hopefully still in tact.
People are still wondering if Simpson’s quickie engagement had anything to do with the fact that her ex-hubby, Nick Lachey announced his engagement to girlfriend of four years Vanessa Minnillo last week.
The timing is somewhat suspicious: Did Lachey’s announcement have something to do with the speediness of Simpson’s engagement? Did Simpson — who reportedly complained that Lachey bought Minnillo’s ring with her money — chip in for her sparkler? Should Simpson get a prenup (in case this one doesn’t work out)? Let’s bask in the good faith of Papa Joe Simpson, who tweeted: “So very happy for Jess and Eric. May they have a lifetime of joy and happiness (via Yahoo!).
Whatever the case, wedding bells are in their future and hopefully someday the pitter patter of little feet. And with that, I’m sure another reality show.
Congrats Jessica and Eric!
