Did Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson feel pressured to get engaged?

Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson are engaged!

After six months of dating, the former NFL player popped the question with a ruby, diamond and gold Neil Lane sparkler on November 11th. 

Jessica accepted the proposal just days after news broke that her ex-husband, Nick Lachey, proposed to Vanessa Minnillo.

Did Jessica and Eric feel the pressure to get engaged too?

Just a week after Nick announced his engagement to Vanessa, Jessica was spotted with a massive rock on her ring finger.  Jessica’s rep confirmed the news to People.

“Yes, we are excited to confirm that they are engaged!”

Odd timing of the two engagements caused people to talk about whether or not she is happy for Nick.

“I don’t know where all those rumors came from,” Simpson told Ryan Seacrest. “My mom actually called me and said that everyone was saying that I was ‘saddened.’ I was just in complete shock. I couldn’t be more happy for Nick.”

“Our relationship was over a really long time ago, and it would be nice if everyone could move on with us and really just celebrate the love between him and Vanessa,” she said. “I do, and I wish them nothing but the best.”

Well we are happy to see both Nick and Jessica happy with their new loves!
