Jessica Simpson and fiancé Eric Johnson may secretly elope sometime this year.
Singer Jessica Simpson and her former NFL playing fiancé Eric Johnson are in no rush to get married. The pair, who began dating in May 2010 and were engaged a mere six months later, are taking their time on saying “I do.” 30 year old Jessica told Women’s Wear Daily:
“We’ve both been married before. We’re enjoying our commitment to each other. We want to take our time … We might elope if it gets to that point.”
There is no wedding date set as of yet, although Jessica has mentioned that she possibly wants to be married by Christmas 2011. She has also said that she wants a simple wedding, and will have a hand in designing her wedding dress.
Jessica also dished on her 31 year old man:
“Eric’s a great guy. He’s taking art classes at UCLA. He’s very artistic. It’s nice to have an artistic athlete. You don’t find that too much.”
On their relationship and how they enjoy their time together:
“We’re very relaxed. It takes a lot to get us stressed out. We talk through everything. You’ll see him off in the corner, and what’s Eric doing? He’s just meditating. … He is really into art, and I am, as well. We’ve been watching a lot of fun documentaries and going to art galleries and hanging out with some cool painters.”
Jessica had a previous well-documented marriage and divorce with Nick Lachey. They were married for 3 years and separated at the end of 2005. Eric, a Yale educated NFL free agent, married Keri Johnson in 2004. The pair separated in October 2009, and his divorce was finalized in October 2010.
