Jessica Simpson celebrates 10th anniversary with Eric Johnson: 'He is mine, I am his'

May 22 (UPI) -- Jessica Simpson is celebrating 10 years with her husband, Eric Johnson.

The 39-year-old singer and fashion designer took to Instagram Thursday evening to mark her 10th anniversary as a couple with Johnson, a former NFL football player.


Simpson shared a photo of herself and Johnson smiling for a selfie. The couple were both dressed casually, with Simpson in a Led Zeppelin t-shirt and Johnson in a Bob Marley hoodie.

"I fell head over slippers in love with this perfect man 10 YEARS ago today! By chance he knocked on my dreamy cottage door (sigh), I let him in and never let him leave. He is mine, I am his... forever #MAY212010," Simpson captioned the post.

Simpson and Johnson married in July 2014 and have three children, son Ace, 6, and daughters Maxwell, 8, and Birdie, 13 months. Simpson recalled her instant connection with Johnson in an interview with Entertainment Tonight in February, saying she considers the day they met as their anniversary.

"I count the day that we met, because it was pretty instant. It was definitely instant. I think he moved in, like, a month later! So we knew," she said.


Simpson was previously married to Nick Lachey, while Johnson was wed to Keri D'Angelo.

"When you know, you know. Especially both of us," Simpson said. "We knew exactly what we wanted in a person, in a companion, and exactly who we wanted to raise children with. We were that for each other."

Simpson discussed her marriage to Lachey and her childhood experience with sexual abuse in her memoir, Open Book, released in February.

Simpson is the elder sister of singer Ashlee Simpson, who is pregnant with her third child. The child will be Ashlee Simpson's second with her husband, Evan Ross.
