Ashlee Simpson & Evan Ross: Their Road To The Altar
You really can’t hurry love! Though the two only started dating last July, Diana was absolutely right – the love that Ashlee and Evan have actually developed over a long time. “Evan and Ashlee have been friends for a really long time, probably ten years. They know each other from the club scene and have tons of mutual friends ” a source told Us last year after the couple started taking things to the next level.
The couple announced their engagement via Twitter on January 13th of this year during a trip to Hawaii. Her wedding band will now complement her breathtakingly beautiful Neil Lane engagement ring which is a vintage-inspired five-carat stunner, set in platinum and gold and comprised of over 140 white diamonds with small ruby accents.
Now that they are married, will the pitter patter of more little feet soon be heard around the Simpson-Ross house? Well, according to his E! interview, Evan is more than game, “It’s up to Ashlee, but I want to have a lot of kids. I grew up with … 10 siblings!”
