Five things for thinking

Simpson and Johnson’s daughter Maxwell, 2, and son Ace, 1, were seen running around and the boy was the center of attention, a source told E! News.

The 33-year-old pop star and fashion mogul rocked a low-cut, glittering, silver, beaded mini dress that showed off her toned and tanned legs and wore her long, blonde hair down. She paired the outfit with metallic Jimmy Choo heels. Many guests complimented her on her “amazing” look, a source told E! News. Johnson looked dapper in a black suit.
3. Simpson picked the pescetarian menu
The dinner took place indoors, allowing for a romantic, intimate setting. Guests sat at two tables lined with beautiful arrangements of pink, purple, white and yellow flowers and enjoyed a meal of fish and vegetables, as selected by Simpson, plus wine, beer and cocktails.
4. Simpson got emotional
Several of the singer and Johnson’s best friends stood up and gave speeches. Simpson was spotted getting teary-eyed several times. “It was very sweet!” the source told E! News.
