Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson tie the knot

By Elizabeth Learned,

Jessica Simpson is now married to former NFL player Eric Johnson. The two were married at San Ysidro Ranch, which is located in Santa Barbara, California.

According to People, the happy couple released a statement Saturday saying, “We are overwhelmed with complete happiness and love having made our eternal commitment.”

The bride wore a gown designed by Carolina Herrera and over 250 guests were at the ceremony, including Jessica Alba, CaCee Cobb and Simpson’s sister, Ashlee, with her fiancé, Evan Ross.

The couple already has two children together, 1-year-old Ace and 2-year-old Maxwell. Ace was their ring bearer and Maxwell was a flower girl.

Simpson and Johnson dated for four years before tying the knot. The couple have been engaged since 2010, but they have put wedding plans on hold two separate times after finding out Simpson was pregnant.

In the hours before the wedding, Us Weekly put together a timeline of the couple’s relationship. They were photographed together for the first time in July of 2010, five months after they began dating, when they attended an event to celebrate Johnson’s grandparents’ anniversary.

In May, Simpson posted a photo on Instagram of both herself and Johnson, saying in the caption, “I can’t wait to marry you!!! Best 4yrs of my life!!!”
