Jessica Simpson's touching message to Eric Johnson as they celebrate their anniversary

By Zach Harper

Jessica Simpson has sent a sweet message to husband Eric Johnson on the couple's sixth wedding anniversary, calling him her "soulmate" and thanking him for their years together so far.

The singer, who turns 40 this week, shared a photo of her and Eric holding a crystal butterfly he gifted her to celebrate their anniversary on July 5. Jessica referred to it as her "dream gift."

"Eric Johnson, my husband, I love you," she wrote in the caption. "Six years ago today I married my perfect soulmate. Our unity was written in God's sky of colliding stars. Together we manifest dreams, nature desire, and hold space. Destined, it has always been and always will be, forevermore."

She also shared a quote from Emily Bronte: "Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same."

Since they married, Jessica and Eric, a former NFL tight end, have welcomed three children together: Maxwell Drew, 8, Ace Knute, 7 and Birdie Mae, 1.

Eric has also been there for Jessica with the release of her memoir, Open Book. The book came out in February, and details Jessica's difficult childhood, how she got sober from alcohol and prescription drugs and body image issues. The two have truly been each other's strongest supports and we're happy they're celebrating yet another year together. Here's to many more for them both!
