Jessica Simpson’s parents were Christians so they raised her in the Christian faith. When Jessie clocked twelve, her dad gave her a purity ring and the singer has severally mentioned that she stayed chaste till marriage. We don’t know for sure whether this was good for her career or not. When Jessica Simpson started out, she portrayed the naive innocent girl without sexual connotations in her songs.
Date of Birth: July 10, 1980
Zodiac Sign: Cancer
The “good girl” approach did not make her much of a superstar so she decided to tryout being more sexy and revealing in her looks. Unfortunately for Jessica, she took this overboard that her “Irresistible” album received mostly negative reviews from a number of music critics. Let’s look into the love life of this singer, fashion goddess and business woman.

Nick Lachey (Jessica’s first husband)
Duration of Marriage: October 26, 2002 – June 30, 2006
Date of Birth: November 9, 1973
Zodiac Sign: Scorpio
Nick and Jessica shared the same manager and it was him that introduced them both at a December 1998 Christmas gathering. Their relationship started in January 1999 after their second meeting. The lovebirds parted shortly only to come back “stronger” 5 months later. On October 26, 2002 Lachey and Simpson were married in Austin, Texas. Since the whole world knew that Jessica Simpson was a virgin prior to her wedding; it was indeed juicy news to know how things were going now that she was married. The moderately popular singer even wrote a song about this experience which she titled “Sweetest Sin”.
MTV was working on airing a reality Newlyweds show starring Jackson and Lisa Presley. The Presley couple had a change of mind and decided not to continue with being the focus of the reality show. MTV began looking for an alternative, giving room for Nick and Jessica as they had just announced their upcoming wedding. The reality series Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica ran from 2003 till 2005. The three-seasoned show followed the detailed daily happenings in the Simpson-Lachey marriage.
Do you think the series was not good for their marriage? Why do you think Simpson and Lachey started having obvious issues after their Newlyweds show? What do you think went wrong? It’s a wonder for many because it seemed like the show was what held their celebrity marriage together. Barely one year after the last episode, had they filed for a divorce!

Johnson missed out in the 2003 and 2005 games because he had an injury. Maybe this was what contributed to his final retirement. Eric tried again to join the New Orleans Saint in 2007 but they released him in 2008, barely one year later.
It seemed like after Romo, Simpson was spurred to try out athletic guys. Her next lover was Eric Johnson a former NFL tight end. They started dating in May 2010 and got engaged in November 2010. On July 5, 2014, Simpson and Johnson had their wedding at a Californian Ranch in Montecito.

Not so long after Jessica had her adorable mini lookalike, she became pregnant again. This time, the Simpson-Johnson family were blessed with a lovely little boy.

Apparently the proud parents want their son in the athletic world.
