First comes love, then comes baby, then comes surprise baby No. 2, then comes marriage!
That's pretty much the progression of Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson's love story, but now, after a three-and-a-half year engagement, these two lovebirds are finally heading for the altar. There have been some (baby) bumps and blessings (in the form of children) on their road to marriage, but this July 4 weekend, Maxwell and Ace's mommy and daddy are finally set to say "I do!"
Let's take a look back at the romantic timeline for the soon-to-be newlyweds!
Eric and his wife of five years, stylist Keri Johnson, separate after nearly five years of marriage in early 2010.
Then the former NFL star's divorce is already underway when he is introduced to Jessica at a party they attended. By the spring rumors start spreading like wild fires that the pair are dating, this is in mid-2010.
They make the relationship "official" when Jessica and Eric are photographed on the island of Capri in Italy celebrating her 30th birthday, this is in July of 2010.
In October of 2010 Eric finalizes the divorce from his fist wife.
By November 14, 2010 Jessica and the world get the news that her ex Nick Lachey is engageged to Vanessa Lachey, then nee Minnillo. The fashion nogul and her Ivy league beau reveal their plans to wed.
Jessica finally tweets on October 31, 2010 after being photographed multiple times with a visible baby bump "I'm going to bu a mummy!!" creative announcement reports E News.
By April 2014 Jessica tells Today's Savannah Guthrie she's happy, healthy and well underway planning her and Eric's "I do's." The wedding will "definitely be extravagant," she says, adding laughingly, "I don't do things small!"
Now it is finally time and we wish them all the happiness in the world.
