It looks like Ashlee Simpson is ready to walk down the aisle for a second time!
On Monday, Evan Ross — the 25-year-old son of the legendary Diana Ross — tweeted, "The love of my life said YES!!!!!!" along with a picture of the happy couple.

Though the couple only went public with their relationship in July 2013, it didn't take long for Ross to fall head over heels for the singer.
According to People Magazine, Ross popped the question with a vintage, navette style Neil Lane sparkler, which he helped modernize with the help of the celebrity jewelry designer. The five-carat marquise-cut diamond is set in platinum and gold, and truly shines with 140 white diamonds accented with small rubies.
At the "Catching Fire" premiere in November, Evan opened up to "The Insider" about his relationship with Ashlee. "It's amazing. I'm so in love," he gushed. "We [have] amazing things going on and we inspire each other … She [is] the one."
Simpson was previously married to Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz. The pair, who wed in April 2008 and announced their separation in February 2011, have a 5-year-old son named Bronx.
While it's been smooth sailing when it comes to her current personal life, Ashlee's career has been relatively quiet. She last appeared in the 2013 film "Pawn Shop Chronicles," which came and went quickly from theaters in limited release. The film also co-starred the late Paul Walker.
Evan is attached to star in the third and fourth film installments of the "Hunger Games" franchise — "Mockingjay" Parts 1 and 2 (due out in November of 2014 and 2015 respectively) — playing the role of Messalla, a member of the camera crew that's been sent to document Katniss's invasion of the Capitol. His character is an assistant to the character of Cressida, which will be played by Natalie Dormer from HBO's "Game of Thrones."
"We've had a few days in … we're a few months in," he told Clevver News about the "Mockingjay" filming experience at the "Catching Fire" premiere. Although he couldn't say much about the role, he did note, "I'm on Team Katniss, I can tell you that."
Sounds like he's on Team Ashlee to us!
