Nick and Vanessa are finally tying the knot! Does this mean Jessica Simpson will rush down the aisle with beau Eric Johnson?

Finally! After four years of dating (and plenty of on-again/off-again speculation to go with it), Nick Lachey has popped the question to longtime girlfriend Vanessa Minnillo. We guess after nearly running into ex-wife Jessica Simpson, 36-year-old Nick Lachey decided it was time to settle down…again.

USMagazine.com is reporting reps for both stars have confirmed the engagement announcement. The couple also released a statement sharing their happy news:

“We’re excited and incredibly happy about our engagement and we look forward to a wonderful future together.”

Vanessa, 29, has gone on the record saying that she has no plans for letting cameras into her life for a show, and Nick’s new reality project will reportedly only be following his career. Looks like Nick has learned many lessons from the cursed months that followed the final season of MTV’s Newlyweds.

Vanessa also shares a birthday with her soon-to-be hubby Nick: November 9. Looks like there will be much to celebrate in the coming week! Congrats, you two!
