It looks like the Ross and Simpson families have a huge wedding to plan. According to reports, Evan Ross and girlfriend Ashlee Simpson are officially engaged.
The 25-year-old actor and son of Diana Ross shared the good news with his 30,000 Twitter followers. “The love of my life said YES!!!!!!” he wrote. The 29-year-old singer added, “My baby love and I are ENGAGED!!! Hallelujah Hawaii!!!”
Evan’s older sister Tracee Ellis Ross congratulated the lovebirds on her Instagram account. “I’m so over the moon for my brother. He found the LOVE of his life. And you get another sister. Nothing better. I love you Shlee,” she wrote. “I’M SO EXCITED!!!!! #RossSimpson #love.”
Evan’s proposal did not come as a surprise to us. At The Hunger Games: Catching Fire premiere in November, he gushed that Jessica Simpson’s little sister was “the one.” They formally announced their relationship to the world in July after attending a series of events together.
This will be the second trip down the aisle for Simpson, who has a 5-year-old son named Bronx Mowgli from her previous marriage to Pete Wentz.
