Between traveling to Middle East to meet troops and performing songs for a PBS special to air Thanksgiving, Jessica Simpson has been a busy girl lately.
Where would she be without the support of Eric Johnson?
"He went and got a sweater and a bowtie to try to lift my spirits because I've been working extremely hard," Simpson said. "I laughed my butt off!"
"We're just best friends. He's my dude! I love him." - Jessica on Eric
The couple began dating in May, and ever since have been spotted getting cozy across the U.S. and overseas – even celebrating her birthday together in Italy.
If the relationship seems like it's serious, that's because it is."We're all gonna be in New York [for Thanksgiving]," she says. "I'm gonna be on a [Macy's parade] float. Not always the best way to spend a Thanksgiving, but it's a great way to celebrate. So, maybe I'll just have all families on the float."
For now, they're simply enjoying spending time together.
"Tomorrow we're having a long day off," she says. "He loves art. So, we go to art galleries, and he loves photography. It's cool. This [relationship] is just normal, thank God. He's very, very supportive. [I] couldn't ask for a better man."
Does that mean he's the one ... for all time?
"I never go to that because I already went there, so, I'm not gonna jinx my own self," she says. "He's the one for me right now! I'm very happy!"
