Jessica Simpson’s new boyfriend Eric Johnson isn’t wasting any time getting comfortable with his new leading lady.
After tending to some errands in Los Angeles on Tuesday afternoon (July 6), the 30-year-old former NFL tight end could be seen getting out of Jessica’s luxury SUV.
So, who is Eric? “He’s one of the nicest guys around,” an NFL insider, who has worked with the ex-San Francisco 49ers player, is quoted as saying. “I’m surprised he is dating her. She is such a big star and he is so reserved.”
The insider adds: “He is very smart and he is one of the most down-to-earth athletes I know.”
And after a string of high profile relationships, it appears something low-key is just what Jessica needs.
“He is the polar opposite of what you think of when you say ‘player,’” says the NFL source. “When I met him, he was driving a Prius when other athletes were driving gas-guzzling cars.”
