Stars & Their Athlete Loves!

Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson

After her Dallas Cowboys quarterback beau Tony Romo split with her last year on her birthday, Jessica Simpson has found love with another athlete. She celebrated her big 3-0 on July 10 in style on the Italian island of Capri with former football star Eric Johnson. The singer (who tweeted this Marilyn Monroe quote recently, "sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together") reportedly met the Yale grad, who has played for the San Francisco 49ers and the New Orleans Saints, in May through friends. The pair have since spent cozy summer nights together, celebrating the Fourth of July together in Florida before jetting off to Italy for a romantic birthday getaway. The only wrinkle in her romance? Johnson split with his wife earlier this year but the divorce hasn't been finalized.
