A friend of Jessica tells Pop Eater, “Even though Jessica wants to be happy for Nick, this is a very difficult time for her,” “Nick was the love of her life then, man, and he was her first, so she will always have a very special place in her heart for him. She’s deeply saddened.”

The happy couple, that’s Nick and Vanessa told Us Weekly that they were excited and incredibly happy about their engagement and look forward to a wonderful future together. Nick got down on one knee and popped the question with an Asscher-cut diamond. Ooooh how cute!

Nick started dating Vanessa shortly after his divorce from Jessica and although the lovebirds had a brief time out last summer, they quickly patch things up! 

If you love someone put a ring on it!

And for Jessica, don’t be say.. if it’s not Eric Johnson, the right guy will come along.
