Jessica Simpson & Eric Johnson

Jessica Simpson & Eric Johnson

2010 - current

 

News of a budding relationship between Jessica Simpson and former NFL tight end Eric Johnson broke on July 5th, 2010. Allegedly introduced to one another through mutual friends, it was later confirmed to People that the pair had been dating as far back as May 2010.

Just four months later, following the finalization of Johnson’s divorce from his first wife on October 13th, a rep for Jessica and Eric confirmed reports that they’d gotten engaged on November 11th, 2010.

After a year of lying low, and with no wedding in sight, rumors began swirling that Jessica was actively hiding a baby bump using a combination of large bags and oversized tops. It was only a matter of weeks before Jessica confirmed that she was pregnant with their first child on October 31st, 2011.

Jessica gave birth to a daughter on May 1st, 2012. She revealed the news on her website, saying, “Eric and I are elated to announce the birth of our baby girl, Maxwell Drew Johnson," she wrote. "We are grateful for all the love, support and prayers we have received. This has been the greatest experience of our lives!!" 

Beginning on and around November 28th, 2012, it was widely reported that Jessica was expecting her second child, just 7 months after giving birth to her first. That news would go on to be confirmed, via Twitter, on Christmas Day, December 25th, 2012.

The following summer, on June 30th, 2013, Jessica gave birth to her second child, and first son, Ace Knute Johnson. Fun fact, Ace is just 14 months younger than his big sister Maxwell.

On July 5th, 2014, after 4 years together, Jessica and Eric finally tied the knot at the San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, California. The couple opened up about the nuptials in a statement which read, "To say 'I do' in front of family, friends and, most importantly, our children has been the happiest moment of our lives."
