More wedding bells for the Simpson sisters! Ashlee is engaged to actor Evan Ross (son of the legendary Diana Ross). The singer shared the happy news on Twitter this evening — "My baby love and I are ENGAGED!!! Hallelujah Hawaii!!!!!"— along with a photo of her new ring:
Ross worked with famed Los Angeles jewelry designer Neil Lane to create the one-of-a-kind ring, which stemmed from a piece in Lane's vintage archival collection. The original ring featured a marquise-cut diamond surrounded by small rubies. The pair worked together to add a modern twist, consulting with the bride-to-be's mother, Tina Simpson, to make sure Ashlee would love it. The updated ring features a diamond sleeve around the rubies, giving the new five-carat ring a total of 140 white diamonds accented with more rubies, set in platinum and gold. “Evan was really, really sweet, and he was looking for something beautiful, a unique ring that said everything: love, romance, beauty, character. He didn’t want anything traditional," Lane told People. "His taste level is exquisite, and he wanted to make sure it was a perfect ring for his love.”

The pair was first spotted together in July. At the premiere of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (Ross will play Messalla in Mockingjay) in November, the groom-to-be hinted at a pending engagement, telling omg! Insider that "she's the one" and that wedding bells were "for sure" in their future.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
