“We just want to be married. We’re in love. This is the most incredible time I could ever think of in my life and I’m young, but the same time, I’ve lived a different life than most and I can’t think of a happier moment.”

Ross, whose also been picked to play Messalla in the upcoming Hunger Games: Mockingjay parts 1 and 2, says he knew he wanted to marry Simpson “really quickly.”

“I was giving it time only because I wanted to give it time, but I would have asked her a month after I was with her,” he said.

“She’s involved in all levels of my life. She’s one of the most incredible mothers ever. My mom is 69 and she’s going on tour again. She was on tour last year and even going tour, she’s involved in every piece of our wedding [and] engagement party.”

Congrats Evan and Ashlee!
