Jessica Simpson started dating NFL football player Eric Johnson last month, it has been revealed.
Sources say they are smitten with each other, according to gossip website TMZ.
One said: “They are very happy.”
Johnson – who has previously played for the San Francisco 49ers and the New Orleans Saints – split from his wife earlier this year and filed for divorce in February.
Although she has been romantically linked to Smashing Pumpkins singer Billy Corgan, Simpson has not been in a serious relationship since ex-boyfriend Tony Romo dumped her on her 28th birthday last year.
Despite the way Romo – who also plays in the NFL - ended their romance, Simpson insists the pair are still friends.
She has said: "Tony is great, still a friend of mine. I still look at his cute butt in the outfit - uniform.
"What went wrong? You'd have to ask him that. He broke up with me on my birthday. We are still good friends."
The 29-year-old blonde beauty was previously married to singer Nick Lachey and dated John Mayer for nine months.
