While it's been five years since Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson starred in MTV's Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica, the former lovebirds might as well audition for another reality show – The Amazing Race. Just one week after Lachey proposed to long-time girlfriend Vanessa Minnillo, Simpson announced that she and Eric Johnson plan to walk down the aisle as well.
A rep for the couple confirmed to People Magazine that Simpson and Johnson are engaged. However, a source close to the pair swears that the proposal had nothing to do with Jessica's ex-husband's news.
"[Eric] had been planning the engagement for awhile and the date of the engagement was a special date for them," the insider told the news outlet.
While we're curious to see which couple will win the race to the altar, we're even more interested to see how the upcoming ceremonies will compare to Nick and Jessica's 2002 nuptials. According to CelebrityBrideGuide.com, their wedding was the epitome of romance. Tables were decorated with pink roses and candles, and guests were given CD recordings of love songs that the couple recorded for one another as wedding favors.
