Simpson Gushes About New Boyfriend
Jessica Simpson has publicly declared her love for her new boyfriend Eric Johnson - branding the former footballer "the one".
The singer has been unlucky in love in recent years with a broken marriage to Nick Lachey and a failed romance with John Mayer.
Simpson's last boyfriend, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, dumped her on the eve of her 29th birthday last summer (09).
But the star has bounced back with a new relationship with retired San Francisco 49ers player Johnson, who she has been dating since May (10).
And Simpson is pleased she has finally found a man who understands her.
She tells People.com, "As far as Eric and I go, we're just best friends. He's my dude! I love him. This (relationship) is just normal, thank God. He's very, very supportive... Couldn't ask for a better man in my life right now...
"He's the one for me right now! I'm very happy. I'm in a great place, and if right now could last forever, I'd take it."
