We watched her dominate the pop charts of the early aughts, saw the union and dissolution of her first marriage played out across reality TV, and now, Jessica Simpson's happily ever after is just getting started. After welcoming her third child with her husband earlier this year, these 14 photos of Jessica Simpson and her husband, Eric Johnson, prove that love still exists, and it's totally worth waiting for.
Back in 2010, Simpson and Johnson officially began dating, according to E! News, which added that Johnson, a former football player and Ivy League educated businessman actually left the Wharton School to be with Simpson. And while they technically got engaged back in 2010 — mere months after they met — the couple did not actually tie the knot until four years later, according to Us Weekly.
Their wedding was stalled as they welcomed two children together, a daughter named Maxwell and a son named Ace. In 2011, Simpson posted a photo of herself dressed as a "mummy" for Halloween, as a quippy pun to share that she was expecting her first daughter, according to Billboard. Since the nuptials, according to People, they've welcomed one more daughter named Birdie, who was born earlier this year.
It's clear that this couple was completely meant to be and certainly prove that love is not only real, but definitely worth waiting for.
Sweethearts From The Start

Johnson and Simpson posed for this super sweet family photo for Glamour, in which she wrote about self-acceptance. "Let him love all of you," Simpson advised about relationships in an essay for Glamour. "Eric has seen me at every size, and he loves me no matter what. When I got pregnant with Ace four months after having Maxwell, I was nervous about starting over again. I had come so far in learning how to balance my career, family life, and hormones, and starting over again felt overwhelming. Eric was so supportive and challenged me to accept my insecurities and focus on what truly matters. I feel stronger than ever, and Eric's unconditional love has been a reminder of the love I should give myself."
