After years of being stuck on Mr. Wrong, Jessica Simpson thinks her luck has finally changed thanks to her latest beau, ex-NFL star Eric Johnson.

"I met a wonderful man," Simpson, 30, tweeted early Sunday morning. "Damn I'm lucky!"

The Price of Beauty star then posted a photo of herself with Johnson, who she began dating nearly 12 weeks ago.

Johnson has already won the approval of at least one member of the Simpson clan: little sister Ashlee Simpson-Wentz, 25, who told in July: "She is happy, so we are all really happy. Her happiness is the most important thing to me."

Still, Simpson-Wentz insists her sister isn't in any rush to settle down with Johnson (who was still married when he first began dating the singer).

"She does love being an aunt though. She is a great aunt," Simpson-Wentz explained. "Yesterday Bronx was over at her house calling her 'Jess' [and then saying] 'ica' a few minutes later. It was really cute."
