Keep an eye out for a wedding ring to pop up out of nowhere on Jessica Simpson
The star, who is engaged
to former NFL player Eric Johnson, has revealed she's open to marrying her man in secret – and says there's no wedding date set as yet.
"We've both been married before," Simpson, 30, tells Women's Wear Daily
in a new interview. "We're enjoying our commitment to each other. We want to take our time … We might elope if it gets to that point."
Simpson, who has said in the past that she wants a simple wedding
and possibly to be married by Christmas 2011, also revealed there's one talented fashion mogul
who will definitely have a hand in designing her wedding dress – herself.
"I will be part of designing my own wedding gown," she says.
As for Johnson joining the family business, Simpson says that's not in the cards.
"Eric's a great guy. He's taking art classes at UCLA. He's very artistic," she says. "It's nice to have an artistic athlete. You don't find that too much."
And when they're not working? "We're very relaxed. It takes a lot to get us stressed out," Simpson says. "We talk through everything. You'll see him off in the corner, and what's Eric doing? He's just meditating."
Johnson "is really into art, and I am, as well," she adds. "We've been watching a lot of fun documentaries and going to art galleries and hanging out with some cool painters."
"My house is my little château," Simpson says. "I like to stay home with my friends and cook, or we all order in. My house is a revolving door."
