Jessica Simpson started dating Eric Johnson in May and finds him "very, very supportive."

Nick and Jessica are getting remarried -- to other people.

Less than two weeks after Nick Lachey revealed he's engaged to longtime love Vanessa Minnillo, his ex-wife has a ring of her own.

Jessica Simpson was flaunting a sizable sparkler on her left hand during a store appearance in Kansas City, Mo.

Her spokeswoman confirmed she plans to wed Eric Johnson, 31, a former NFL player she's been seeing since May.

This isn't the first time Simpson, 30, has played the football field: She and Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo were a couple for two years.

The singer, about to release a Christmas album, told Peo last month that she'll spend Thanksgiving with Johnson in New York. "He's very, very supportive," she said. "[I] couldn't ask for a better man in my life right now."
