Singer Jessica Simpson celebrated her engagement with footballer Eric Johnson at a party with friends and family.
The celebrations involved about 40 to 50 people, including a few football players. All of them gathered at the California home of Simpson's parents, Joe and Tina.
Guests were served hamburger and veggie burger sliders, chicken skewers, mini pizzas, shrimp, and for dessert, mini cupcakes.
"They were very happy. It was the first time they had seen a lot of their friends since the engagement. She was excited to see her girlfriends," usmagazine.com quoted a friend of Simpson as saying.
The couple began dating in June, when Johnson was separated from his wife of five years, Keri. Simpson split from ex-husband Nick Lachey, 37, in 2005.
