Jessica’s rep confirms their engagement to Us Magazine on Sunday that Jessica,30,and her beau Eric Johnson,31, have indeed became engaged on Thursday.

According to US magazine, the newly engaged couple will spend Thanksgiving in NYC, where Simpson is scheduled to perform during Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade; Johnson’s family will join her on the float.

“Having a boyfriend through the holidays, we’re going to see how that all splits up,” the singer told Ryan Seacrest during a KIIS-FM radio interview last week. “I can’t imagine not being with my nephew and watching him open gifts. Maybe someone gets Christmas Eve and somebody gets Christmas day.”

I hope it’s not Nick’s engagement that’s making Jessica rush into anything. Nick and Vanessa have been dating for five years.¬†As for Jessica and the former NFL player, they’ve only started dating since May.

Congratulations Jessica!
