Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz are engaged



Tbdashleesimpson041108_2 While big sister Jessica is desperately looking for attention, Ashlee Simpson knows the fastest way to get your name back in the news is to get engaged. She and Fall Out Boy frontman Pete Wentz are officially tethered, the 23-year-old singer said in a statement posted on

"We know there has been a lot of speculation recently about Pete and I, and we wanted our fans to be the first to know, because you guys are the best," the post read. "Yes, we are thrilled to share that we are happily engaged. Thank you for all of your support and well wishes -- it means the world to us. We consider this to be a very private matter, and we wanted to be the first to tell you and to hear it straight from us."

Simpson and the 28-year-old bassist have been an item since 2006, when they were spotted hooking up in nightclub bathroom in New York. The Juice* happily told you about that foulness, so we're glad to see it all worked out.
