Jessica Simpson Reveals: I Cried When Eric Johnson Proposed & My Ring Is 100 Years Old!

Jessica canceled her ‘Early Show’ performance because she felt under the weather, yet she still managed to gush all about her ruby red ring!

Even though Jessica Simpson claimed she wasn’t in tip-top shape during her Nov. 22 interview on CBS, she appeared over the moon while discussing her upcoming nuptials! Jess, 30, recently became engaged to former NFL star Eric Johnson, even though the couple have only been together for six months.

“It was a total surprise,” she said. “I actually had to sit on his knee I was so shocked. … I said yes and we both definitely were teary-eyed. I didn’t even try the ring on until like, five minutes in, I was so shocked, just kind of sat there and cried with him.”

We all wanted to know the details of her gorgeous and non-traditional ring, and it turns out it’s an antique!

“It’s from 1910, over 100 years old,” Jessica revealed. “It’s a ruby, my birthstone. I’ve already done the traditional thing, I wanted to do something that was different. It was all Eric’s idea … it’s an orignal Tiffany and he got it from Neil Lane.”

so in other words the story published last week about Jessica buying her own ring was a big load of bullcrap!
