Divorce is a painful process for couples, so there are going to be mixed emotions if a former spouse gets re-married. Just the same, Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson appear nothing but happy for each other.
Much as the tabloids wish he'd give a better sound bite, Nick wishes nothing but the best for Jess, who got engaged to Eric Johnson over the weekend.
"I will say the same thing I always say: I wish her the very best," said Lachey, who just got engaged to Vanessa Minnillo himself after years of dating.

Asked how she felt about Lachey's engagement, Simpson is equally mature, telling Ryan Seacrest "Our relationship was over a really long time ago, and it would be nice if everyone could move on and celebrate the love between him and Vanessa."
Like Jessica, Nick says he's "basking in the glow" of the news and "enjoying that. I'm sure we'll get on the other planning shortly. We are just enjoying this experience."
Simpson and Lachey famously wed in 2002 and infamously split in 2005. Even then, it wasn't bitter. "This is the mutual decision of two people with an enormous amount of respect and admiration for each other," they said in a statement.
