Jessica Simpson is wishing ex-husband Nick Lachey all the best in his second shot at marriage.

“I am extremely, extremely happy for him,” the singer-actress, 30, told Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM radio show Thursday. “I couldn’t be more happy for Nick.”

Simpson dismissed rumors that she wasn’t thrilled to hear that Lachey, 37, got engaged this month to girlfriend Vanessa Minnillo, 30.
