It looks like Jessica’s rocky love life has finally come to a close. The 30-year-old singer, actress, TV personality and now fashion designer got engaged to former NFL player Eric Johnson last Thursday!
The hot and steamy couple began dating only six months ago while he was still estranged from his first wife Kery Johnson. But what makes the engagement even more juicy, is Jessica’s ex-husband Nick Lachey, 37, also proposed to his longtime girlfriend Vanessa Minnillo a few days before.
We can all remember the exes as they performed their first year of marriage on the MTV reality show Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica. We were all saddened when the attractive couple split in 2005- just three years after marriage!
According to omg!, the blonde bombshell sported a “sizable” ring on Sarturday at Dillard’s at Oak Park Mall in Kansas City.
Eric Maxwell Johnson, 31, was a tight end who was drafted by the San Francisco 49ers in the seventh round of the 2001 NFL Draft and played college football at Yale.
Jessica has been busy promoting her new denim line that hit the runways of New York Fashion Week in September. She has also been working on a Christmas album and is set to perform during Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade in NYC.
She was not hush hush about her feelings for Johnson. In September she tweeted “I met a wonderful man… Damn, I’m lucky.”
And as for their holiday plans. Jessica told Ryan Seacrest during a KIIS-FM radio interview last week: “Having a boyfriend through the holidays, we’re going to see how that all splits up… I can’t imagine not being with my nephew and watching him open gifts. Maybe someone gets Christmas Eve and somebody gets Christmas day.”
