Jessica Simpson may be not-so-subtly nudging her new dude, Eric Johnson, to the altar. In addition to taking him on lavish trips and letting him crash at her place, she allegedly just purchased a $50,000 three carat emerald cut ring just so he would know that she doesn’t care that he’s too broke to get married. Easy there, Jess. Even if you end up buying the ring and being the breadwinner in the relationship, we really hope that you’ll at least wait until the poor dude is totally on board before you propose to him.

After the jump, some famous women who proposed to their men.
- Heather Mills proposed to her first husband, Alfie Karmal. He said yes, but on one condition—that she stop her compulsive lying. “I told her I couldn’t marry her until she did something about her compulsive lying, and she agreed to see a psychiatrist for eight weeks. She admitted she had a problem and said it was because she’d been forced to lie as a child by her father,” Karmal admitted. This should have served as a warning to Sir Paul McCartney. [Wikipedia]
- After years of being together and raising a clan of children, it was rumored that Angelina Jolie was the one who got down on one knee and proposed to Brad Pitt while they were in Venice. Why does this not surprise me? [Showbiz Spy]
- Pink proposed to on-again, off-again husband Cary Hart back in 2005 by holding up a sign that said “Will You Marry Me?” during one of his racing competitions. He drove off the course to accept her proposal. And five years later he is a little person in one of her music videos. Love! [About]
