For many years Ashlee Simpson was simply known as Jessica Simpson’s younger sister, but through her own musical career she began to take on the spotlight for herself. After her highly publicized marriage and divorce from Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz, Ashlee Simpson has once again found love with Evan Ross who is an actor and musician, and also the son of the iconic singer Diana Ross. Now the twosome are one of Hollywood’s most adorable and low-key couples, so here are 7 things you never knew about the pair and their relationship.

7. Friends First

Many times Ashlee Simpson and Evan Ross’ romance has been called a “whirlwind” relationship because of the pace in which they started dating and became engaged. What many don’t know, however, is that the pair were actually friends first. The two actually first met in the early 2000s while on the Hollywood club scene and had many mutual friends which meant they hung out regularly, so they were friends for 10 years before starting a romantic relationship.

6. Working Together

After some success with her own music, Ashlee Simpson revealed that not only was she making her comeback to music in 2017, but was doing so with her husband! At an event in late 2016 she stated, “We’re working on an album together. So in the new year that will be happening!” She added that she was excited to work with Ross. “It’s been really fun to work together. This way we can tour together! I’m definitely excited. I love working with my husband. The sound is soulful, fun and reflective of the music we both like. When you work separately you don’t get to hang out — so this works out well.”
