Someone sure sounds excited about walking his daughter down the aisle!

Just days after Jessica Simpson accepted a ruby-and-diamond engagement ring from her boyfriend of five months, football player Eric Johnson, the bride-to-be's father, Joe Simpson, posted his good wishes on Twitter.

"So very happy for Jess and Eric," he posted Sunday night. "May they have a lifetime of joy and happiness."

Joe joined Johnson, 31, at the filming of Jessica's Thanksgiving PBS special last month, where the singer, 30, gushed to PEOPLE about her relationship with her beau, which she termed "just normal, thank God. He's very, very supportive."

She added that she "couldn't ask for a better man in my life right now."
