Jessica Simpson has told how her fiance managed to keep her engagement ring hidden from her before he proposed.
Eric Johnson, 31, asked the Dukes Of Hazzard actress to marry him – presenting her with a three-stone ruby engagement ring – after telling her family of his plans.
Jessica, 31, told US show Sirius XM’s The Morning Mash Up: “He had the ring in his shoe at my house somewhere. I was like: Why hide it in a shoe? But it worked. I had no idea.”
In an interview to be broadcast next month, she added: “He had talked to my mom and dad and my sister three weeks before he asked me. I can’t believe all the Simpsons kept a secret.”
The actress and singer was in the middle of watching Parenthood earlier this month when American football player Eric asked her to pause the show so he could pop the question.
“He got down on his knee and I had to sit down on it because I was so shocked. I was… short of breath. It was definitely one of those moments where I’ve never felt that way before, ever.”
