DAILY MAIL: Jessica Simpson’s high school sweetheart recalls slow dancing with the future star before she became Hollywood’s most famous virgin on reality TV show, Newlyweds.
Chris Etchieson has shared never-before-seen photographs taken one year before Simpson met first husband Nick Lachey, and admits he will always look back on that night in 1997 with mixed emotions.
The singer and fashion designer was the most popular girl at J.J. Pearce High School in Dallas, Texas, and naturally all the guys wanted to date her.
ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT: The honeymoon certainly isn’t over for Jessica Simpson and her husband Eric Johnson.
The mother-of-two celebrated the fifth anniversary of when she first met Johnson by posting several sexy Instagram pics of her cuddled up to her man.
“The sexiest day of my life was 5yrs ago when Johnson came into my home #MAY21,” Simpson wrote. “We are awesome.”
Simpson, 34, revealed that she met the former NFL pro thanks to a setup from her friends Lauren and Bret Harrison. “Fortunate for these two @laurenz422 and @bretharrison for the unexpected intro #MAY21 #JOHNSON,” she captioned a pic of her and Johnson dining with their pals.
The entertainer was a bridesmaid in the couple’s March 2012 wedding and Lauren used to be her assistant.
After the couple’s anniversary evening, Simpson started snapping pics of their adorable kids, Ace and Maxwell. “Back home to this crazy kitten ballerina,” she said of her daughter.
As for Ace, she wrote: “Wild man Ace Knute #MAY21 #JOHNSON I am so in love with my family.”
The Dukes of Hazzard star was first reported to be seeing Johnson, 35, when the two were caught kissing on Italian island of Capri in July 2010. In July 2014 Simpson and Johnson were married in Montecito, Calif.
Extra — Jessica Simpson, who has been busy running her successful fashion business and being a mom of two, reportedly wants to return to the recording studio.
A source told In Touch Weekly, “She’s told friends she’d love to record another album. It’s her New Year’s resolution.”
In Touch says Simpson, who hasn’t released an album since 2010, is building a studio at home so she can work near husband Eric Johnson, 35, and kids Maxwell, 2, and Ace, 19 months.
The insider said, “The plan is to get the new album recorded this year and go on tour the following. Jess has missed performing so much. She’s very excited.”
