And all on a Friday, too. Who sets this shit up, because I want their number.

Jessica Simpson is reportedly saddened by the fact that ex-husband Nick Lachey popped the question to long-term girlfriend Vanessa Minnillo this past weekend. According to Us Weekly, Lachey lavished Minnillo with an Asscher cut diamond ring, which reaffirmed their commitment to one another:

“We’re excited and incredibly happy about our engagement and we look forward to a wonderful future together.”

Nick’s official take on things?:

“I popped the question on bended knee. I do a lot of squats so my knees are very strong.”

Um, congrats, guys. Vanessa, I hope you know what you’re getting yourself into. Jess … well, just take it easy. Don’t do anything rash like shaving your head or eating an entire honey-glazed ham. You’ll get past this, girl.

The other couple set to race down the aisle? Apparently it’s – wait for it, wait for it – LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian. Yup. After their schmoopy-sweet interview that I posted yesterday (and even I have to admit … I was kind of touched in an odd sort of way after watching), E! online has confirmed the status change on their relationship:

Though it didn’t happen on Halloween, the recently divorced actor indeed popped the question recently and the duo are engaged, a source tells E! News.

Well hells bells, y’all. Congratulations to both of you, all of you. Some people say that there’s nothing greater than that old institution of marriage, so let’s hope it all works out and you guys can remain as happy as you apparently are in this moment now.
