(Newser) – After a nearly-four-year engagement that produced a pair of offspring and a lot of TMI, we can finally stop referring to Eric Johnson as "fiance." Yes, Jessica Simpson at last married her former NFL player beau yesterday in Santa Barbara, People reports. "We are overwhelmed with complete happiness and love having made our eternal commitment," the pair gush in a statement. "To say 'I do' in front of family, friends and, most importantly, our children has been the happiest moment of our lives."

Daughter Maxwell, 2, was flower girl, while 1-year-old son Ace was ring bearer, and People notes that Simpson alluded last year to what might have been delaying that trip down the aisle. "I definitely look forward to the day that I can look into his eyes and make that commitment that we both really long for," she said, adding, you know, for romance: "He's just got to stop knocking me up!"
