After being together for four years and having two beautiful babies, Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson are finally husband and wife. The couple were engaged for quite some time, but had to put the wedding on hold twice because Jessica kept getting pregnant. Jessica jokingly confessed to Jay Leno about the reason why her wedding was being pushed back, she said, ‘We’ve had two different wedding dates, but he keeps knocking me up.”
As you may remember for her first wedding to Nick Lachey, Jessica went over the top and this time wasn’t any different!
According to Eonline,
Sources tell E! News that Jessica’s father, Joe Simpson, officiated her wedding to Eric Johnson July 5.

She and Johnson exchanged vows in front of more than 250 attendees, including celebrities Jessica Alba,CaCee Cobb, Donald Faison, Topher Grace, Evan Ross, Ashlee Simpson and Cash Warren. Guests traveled from states like Illinois, Massachusetts, New York and Texas.
The couple’s 1-year-old son, Ace, served as a ring bearer and their 2-year-old daughter,Maxwell, 2, walked down the aisle as a flower girl. Maxi was accompanied by Ashlee’s 5-year-old son, Bronx Wentz.
When the 34-year-old groom began to recite his vows, he choked up and had to start over again. And, according to sources, Jessica was just as nervous when she said hers. In fact, she was so overwhelmed that instead of addressing Eric, she said her own name! Luckily, she laughed it off and started over again.
After swapping vows, the newlyweds gave a statement to People. “We are overwhelmed with complete happiness and love having made our eternal commitment,” Jessica and Eric gushed. “To say ‘I do’ in front of family, friends and, most importantly, our children has been the happiest moment of our lives.”
