The couple got a little too emotional at the altar, but they got through it as a family.
Jessica Simpson’s wedding may have been a glamorous, star-studded event, but there’s always room for a little public embarrassment, as we all know from experience. The elder Simpson sister married her beau Eric Johnson on the 5th in San Isidro Ranch, California and said her vow in front of more than 250 attendees, including celebrities Jessica Alba, CaCee Cobb, Donald Faison, Topher Grace, Evan Ross, Ashlee Simpson and Cash Warren, E! reports.
It may have taken a couple of tries, but Simpson and Johnson got there in the end.
The audience probably didn’t help when a visibly flustered Eric and his equally flustered Eric and his equally nervous blushing bride flubbed their vows… just a little bit though. When the 34-year-old groom started to recite his vows, he got obviously choked up and found it difficult to continue. He soldiered on though, and when it was time for Jessica’s vow, she had her own embarrassing moment.
Simpson and Johnson have been together since 2010.
Apparently, the bride got so flustered with emotions, that she accidentally said her own name in place of Johnson’s. Being Jessica Simpson, with almost 15 years of performing experience behind her, she reportedly laughed it off and just kept going with the vows. Obviously it worked since the two are now officially a family and couldn’t be happier, judging by the tweets and instagrams. Although to be fair, with four years together and two children, the couple are probably pretty familiar with family life already.
