How Romantic: Jessica Simpson Got Engaged While Watching TV

By  | 

Jessica Simpson is now engaged to former NFL star Eric Johnson. And in addition to learning that Jessica may have bought her own ring, we just found out that she got engaged while watching TV. This keeps getting worse.

Maybe there's something romantic about getting engaged while doing your favorite thing. But isn't it sad when your favorite thing is NBC's Parenthood?

According to Us:

“I was watching Parenthood at the time,” Simpson, 30, said of Johnson's proposal during a SIRIUS XM radio interview for The Morning Mash Up.

Her ex-NFLer beau, 31, “made me pause it,” the singer explains. “I was like, ‘It's a really good part in Parenthood…it's an emotional fight right now.'”

“[Eric's] like, ‘I know, but I just got to show you something.'”

Interestingly, the story is that Eric told Jessica's family he was planning to propose weeks before. (Which means it was less of a revenge proposal for Nick Lachey and Venessa Minnillo's engagement a few weeks earlier.) Ok, maybe. Here's how Jessica tells it:

“It was definitely one of those moments where I’ve never felt that way before, ever,” the star said in her Morning Mashup chat. “I can't believe all the Simpsons kept a secret.”
