Diana Ross' son Evan engaged to Ashlee Simpson

Evan Ross' romance with Ashlee Simpson is in the fast lane.

Simpson, the 29-year-old younger sister of Jessica, and Ross, 25, revealed on Twitter Monday that they're now engaged.

"The love of my life said YES!!!!!" tweeted actor Ross, who's starred in TV shows like "90210" and movies like "ATL." The young star included a photo of himself with his new fiancee, who's sporting what looks to be the engagement ring.

Over on her own Twitter account, Simpson just as enthusiastically shared the news that she and her "baby love" are ready to wed.

This will be the singer's second marriage; she was previously wed to Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz, with whom she has a 5-year-old son, Bronx Mowgli.

Ross and Simpson were first seen hanging out together in July 2013, with the word on the street being that they knew one another "from the club scene and have tons of mutual friends."

They were seen sharing photos of what appeared to be a whirlwind romance, going from cozy one-on-one time ...

... to spending the holidays together.

In November 2013, at that month's "Hunger Games: Catching Fire" premiere, Ross was calling Simpson "the one."

"It’s amazing," Ross told Yahoo! of their relationship. "I’m so in love and we’ve got amazing things going on. And we inspire each other.”

    Evan Ross has loss is dam mine. He needs a fresh start with a woman that has no bagged . she don't even have a career. Unless u want to count her sister giving her a job to model her clothes. And SHES not model material. Guess she can go back to lip singing. Wonder if Diana Ross is giving her blessing. Hope not.

    @Betsy Her nose is one of a number of things that are no longer 'factory original'. Do a google search of before and after pics of her face. She was not a pretty girl before her multiple stints with her plastic surgeon. Jess got the good looks for sure.

    This is such an odd pairing. I dont see it lasting. Marrying a younger guy when she herself is only 29 does not hold much promise for lon-term success IMHO.

      Why such a nasty comment? Who cares if she had her nose done – WTH are you to say anything about their relationship? Jealousy & whinng are not a good look on You. Makes you sound as ugly on the inside as you probably are on the outside....

      So does Diana Ross. I kinda think that was what MJ had in mind when he started his plastic surgery odyssey.

      Diana Ross helped MJ in his singing; she is 25 years older than MJ. MJ fell in love with her but she was not interested in that kind of relationship so MJ got a many cosmetic surgeries to look like Diana especially the nose. MJ has dedicated a song "Dirty Diana" after Diana Ross!
