Ashlee to wed her Fall Out Boy

Singer ASHLEE SIMPSON is set to marry FALL OUT BOY star PETE WENTZ - after the pair got engaged earlier this week

The couple were on a trip to Colorado - where Wentz's brother was exhibiting an artwork - when the bassist, 28, asked Simpson to marry him.

A friend of the couple, who have been together for two years, said: "He got down on one knee and she said yes. She has an amazing ring, and they are so in love."

In a statement released shortly after news of the engagement broke, 23-year-old Simpson said: "We know there has been a lot of speculation recently about Pete and I and we wanted our fans to be the first to know, because you guys are the best.

"Yes, we are thrilled to share that we are happily engaged. Thank you for all of your support and well wishes - it means the world to us.

"We consider this to be a very private matter, and we wanted to be the first to tell you and to hear it straight from us."

A date for the wedding has not yet been set. The couple have been dating since 2006.
