Ashlee Simpson has married fiance Evan Ross.
The 29-year-old singer walked down the aisle Sunday evening at the Greenwich, Connecticut home of the groom’s mother, Diana Ross, who also served as the officiant, according to E! News. Ashlee’s sister, Jessica Simpson, reportedly served as maid of honour during the private ceremony, attended by close friends and family.
Her five-and-a-half-year old son, Bronx, reportedly walked her down the aisle. Ashlee was previously married to Bronx’s father, Fall Out Boy frontman Pete Wentz, from 2008 to 2011.
The singer announced her engagement to Evan on Twitter back in January. “My baby love and I are ENGAGED!!! Hallelujah Hawaii !!!!!” she tweeted while on vacation with her beau.
E! reports the couple celebrated their engagement in March, shortly after Ashlee opened up about her excitement over becoming man and wife. “Honestly, we could go and get married right now, wherever,” she told the outlet a few weeks prior. “We just want to be married. We’re in love. This is the most incredible time I could ever think of in my life and I’m young, but the same time, I’ve lived a different life than most and I can’t think of a happier moment.”
The wedding is the second in just over a month for the Simpson family. Jessica tied the knot with former American football star Eric Johnson in California on July 5.
This marks the first marriage for Evan.
The day after their wedding, Diana threw the couple a ‘farewell barbecue’, an insider told Page Six, adding the ‘lavish bohemian’ themed event was ‘for close friends and family’ and coordinated by events planner Brett Galley of Hollywood Pop.
Apparently, the bride was enjoying herself and excited over her new family while at the event. Ashlee was reportedly overheard at the barbecue saying, “she and Evan were ‘meant to be'” and, “Diana is a wonderful mother,” the insider gushed to Page Six.
Diana was also involved in planning the nuptials.
“She’s involved in all levels of my life. She’s one of the most incredible mothers ever. She’s involved in every piece of our wedding,” Evan previously told E! News.
