Jessica Simpson walks through LAX Airport to catch a departing flight on Tuesday (May 31) in Los Angeles.

The 30-year-old singer and fashion designer recently chatted with Access Hollywood about her engagement and upcoming wedding with former NFL player Eric Johnson.

“It’s the best year of my life,” she said, while Eric added, “[Jessica is] just a regular, grounded, down to earth person and I like it.”

As for the wedding, “I absolutely adore [Kate Middleton‘s wedding] dress. I thought she looked absolutely beautiful, there’s no bride that can top a Royal Wedding,” she said.

“I’m not going to be wearing the same kind of thing,” she shared, “but it will be beautiful in its own right.”
