Simpson and Lachey Wed

Teen-pop stars tie the knot in Texas

By |

Twenty-two-year-old pop singer Jessica Simpson married 98 Degrees' Nick Lachey, twenty-eight, Saturday in Austin, Texas.

After a couple years of dating, the two split briefly in 2001, but reconciled after September 11th. They became engaged last February, when Lachey popped the question in Hawaii. "I knew that I never wanted to be away from Nick for the rest of my life," Simpson said at the time. "I have dreamt of this moment my entire life, and now my prince charming has come."

Simpson and Lachey's respective career plans are far murkier than their personal lives: 98 Degrees has been on an extended break since the 2000 release of Revelation, and Simpson's last release was the lukewarm Irresistable in May 2001.
