Looks like Evan Ross is already part of the family! On Wednesday, Jan. 15 — two days after the actor and fiancee Ashlee Simpson announced their engagement — Ashlee’s sister Jessica Simpson shared a picture of herself with the happy couple via Instagram.
“Family moment,” the singer-turned-fashion mogul captioned the sweet black-and-white shot, which shows her standing between her younger sister and future brother-in-law. The post was her second since joining the app on Tuesday, Jan. 14; her first was a photo of her recent Redbook cover.
“Jessica loves Evan and approves,” a source told Us Weekly of the designer’s thoughts on her sibling’s engagement.
Ashlee, 29, announced on Monday that she and Diana Ross‘ 25-year-old son were set to marry less than a year after taking their romance public. “My baby love and I are ENGAGED!!!” the once-divorced star tweeted, alongside a picture of herself with her new bling. “Hallelujah Hawaii!!!!!” Added her fiance: “The love of my life said YES!!!!!!”
The 90210 actor first expressed his desire to marry the “Bat for a Heart” singer last fall. “It’s amazing,” he gushed to omg! Insider back in November. “I’m so in love, and we’ve got amazing things going on. And we inspire each other.”
Of course, Ashlee isn’t the only Simpson sister getting ready to walk down the aisle. Jessica — mom to daughter Maxwell and son Ace — has been engaged to Eric Johnson since 2010. Earlier this month, she told Good Morning America that they “want [the wedding] to be this year.”
“We need to get married,” she said. “I already feel like we’re an old married couple.”
