Ashlee Simpson engaged to Evan Ross, Diana Ross's son



Twitter is all atwitter about the latest celebrity engagement.

Pop star (Can we still call her that?) Ashlee Simpson is engaged to Evan Ross, aka Diana Ross’s son, Billboard reports.

For some reason this makes us want to break out into a sprightly rendition of A Brand New Day. That’s a reference to The Wiz. We’ll wait while you YouTube.

Simpson, 29 — who has a 5-year-old son named Bronx with ex-husband and Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz — announced the good news on Twitter: My baby love and I are ENGAGED!!! Hallelujah Hawaii !!!!!

Ross, 25, is set to co-star in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, which is now filming, so we must say he’s on quite the roll here. The couple have been friends for a while but announced their relationship in July.

So wait, does this mean there could be a double wedding in the cards? Big sis Jessica Simpson is engaged to Eric Johnson, the father of her two kids, and they plan to get married this year.
