While most people, including celebrities, tried to get engaged during the holidays, Evan Ross just popped the question to girlfriend Ashlee Simpson last night. Simpson is, of course, the little sister to singer and businesswoman Jessica Simpson.
Evan’s big sis, Tracee Ellis Ross, shared the news for her fans on her Instagram page, sharing her excitement for her baby brother:
“I am so over the moon for my brother. He has found the LOVE of his life. And I get another sister. Nothing better. I love you “Shlee” Congrats @eross77 @Missbananahammock I’M SO EXCITED!!!!! #RossSimpson #love”
As for the couple themselves, Ashlee posted a picture of her and her man (above) on Twitter, unique engagement ring on her finger, with the caption:
“My baby love and I are ENGAGED!!! Hallelujah Hawaii !!!!!”
Evan used the same picture to announce the news to his fans: “The love of my life said YES!!!!!!”
So there you have it. All you ATL fans who were looking to get some “cutty” with “Ant” are sadly going to have to let those dreams go. This will be the first trip down the aisle for the 25-year-old son of Diana Ross, and the second for 29-year-old Ashlee. She was married to Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz from 2008-11 and had a son with him, 5-year-old, Bronx. Ross and Simpson have been dating since July of last year. He spoke about his love for his now wife-to-be in November with People:
“I’m so in love and we’ve got amazing things going on. And we inspire each other.”
Congratulations to the couple on their engagement, and hopefully years full of happiness!
