Ashlee Simpson Engaged to Evan Ross — Diana Ross’s Son!
Ashlee Simpson is getting ready to walk down the aisle again! Almost three years after splitting with rock star hubby Pete Wentz, Ashlee is ready to give matrimony another shot. On January 13, the singer took to Twitter to announce that she and boyfriend Evan Ross are engaged.
Rumors that Ashlee, 29, and Evan, 25, were an item first appeared back in July. Evan is the son of music legend Diana Ross, with Us reporting back in the summer that the two had “been friends for a really long time, probably 10 years."
That longtime friendship appears to have grown quickly into something much deeper over these past six months. “My baby love and I are ENGAGED!!! Hallelujah Hawaii !!!!!” Ashley tweeted on January 14.
She posted a photo of the couple, surrounded by a halo of light, with Ashlee’s gigantic, sparkly engagement ring front and center. Evan posted the same photo on Twitter, gushing to his followers, “The love of my life said YES!!!!!!”
Ash and her son, Bronx, 5, spent the holidays with Evan and his super-famous mom. The soon-to-be-Mr.-Simpson tweeted about it in early December.
