Jessica Simpson burst onto the music scene in 1999 at the age of 19 with her single “I Wanna Love You,” which peaked inside the Top 5 of the Billboard Hot 100. Since that time, she has branched out from singing/songwriting to acting, reality TV, and fashion designing. She has released 10 albums, many of which were certified platinum. She has sold over 30 million albums worldwide, and in 2013, she was ranked #32 on VH1’s list of 100 Sexiest Artists of All Time.

In 1998, Jessica Simpson was introduced to singer Nick Lachey by their shared manager. In February 2002, they announced their celebrity engagement and were married in Austin, Texas later that same year. They made their reality TV debut on the MTV show Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica. The show’s popularity was due in large part to portraying Simpson as the stereotypically naive and dumb blonde. In November 2005, they announced their separation, and their celebrity divorce was finalized on June 30, 2006.

The singer went on to have a high-profile celebrity relationship with Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. During that time, she was nicknamed “Yoko Romo” and blamed for her celebrity ex’s bad performance on the field. Their celebrity romance only lasted two years.

Simpson is now married to retired NFL tight end, Eric Johnson. They met in 2010 and were married four years later on July 5, 2014 in Montecito, California. They have two celebrity kids together: daughter Maxwell Drew (born 2012) and son Ace Knute (born 2013).
