Ashlee Simpson got married over Labor Day weekend and this is news even though no one knew - or cared - that she was in a relationship. Her new husband is Evan Ross, who makes even less headlines than Simpson's last husband, Pete Wentz. Since chances are you probably have no idea who he is, here are some facts we dug up about him:

 

 

He's Diana Ross's son.
Yep, it's true. Simpson and her beau had their wedding at is mom's estate in Connecticut. Hopefully the Ross side of the family took care of the music.

 

He's in the biz, too.
The apple doesn't fall too far from the tree in this case. Like his mom, Evan is pursuing a career in music, and is also an actor. So far, his most famous role has been in "ATL," alongside T.I. and Big Boi. He's just still waiting for that big break, but he does have a small role in the next "Hunger Games" movie.

 

He's known Simpson for a long time.
Ross and Simpson have been dating less than a year, but according to the LA Times, they've been friends for years. The two made their first public appearance as a couple last summer.

Simpson isn't his first famous girlfriend.
According to ABC News, Ross has also dated Aubrey O'Day, Hilary Duff, Lindsay Lohan and Hayden Panettiere.

He has that rocker style Simpson loves.
Simpson just can't resist a guy with skinny jeans in his closet. Evan Ross is a big fan of v-neck tees, floppy hats, leather jackets and man jewelry. Oh yeah!
