Ashlee Simpson excitedly announced on her Twitter account Monday night that she is now officially engaged to her American actor and musician boyfriend Evan Ross, according to the New York Daily News on Jan. 14.

American singer-songwriter and actress 29-year-old Simpson was once married to Pete Wentz, the bassist for Fall Out Boy, and together they have a 5-year-old son. The couple divorced in 2011, citing irreconcilable differences after almost three years of marriage.

Simpson was then in a relationship with actor Vincent Piazza for more than a year from June 2011 to November 2012. Then in July 2013, Jessica Simpson's younger sister Ashlee and Diana Ross' 25-year-old son Evan Ross went public with their new romance.

After dating for only six months, the couple both posted the same photo of them together with Simpson flaunting an engagement ring on their Twitter accounts. Simpson captioned her photo with "My baby love and I are ENGAGED!!! Hallelujah Hawaii !!!!!", while Ross captioned his photo with "The love of my life said YES!!!!!!".

Reportedly, Simpson and Ross had been friends for almost a decade before becoming romantic, and apparently, Ross' famous mother, singer and actress Diana Ross, approve of their relationship. Simpson spent the holidays bonding with her fiance's family and was seen with Diana Ross in August 2013 at a concert after-party.
