    Ashlee Simpson is fitting in quite nicely with her fiance Evan Ross' family.

    "The thing that I think is really beautiful and amazing about her [is] she has a heart of gold, that girl," Evan's sister Tracee Ellis Ross told me at MOCA's 35th Anniversary Gala Presented by Louis Vuitton. "I swear to God, she's like a mushy love, and she's so sweet."

    And she also comes with a famous sibling.

    "We're a big family," Tracee said. "We love siblings. We love big family stuff, and I got two more sisters now. So, it's really cool. Who knew I was going to grow up and have Ashlee and Jessica Simpson as my new siblings?!"

    The Simpsons and Rosses celebrated Evan and Ashlee's upcoming nuptials with an engagement party last week organized by Evan and Tracee's music legend mom, Diana Ross.

    "Evan looked like he came from Game of Thrones," Tracee said of the Mockingjay actor's elaborate ensemble. "And that's part of what's sweet about the two of them together. They both have a similar sense of play and fantasy. The party was amazing."

    Just three weeks ago, Evan, 25, told me that he knew within a month of dating Simpson, 29, that he wanted to marry her. He proposed in January after just six months of dating with a diamond ring in platinum and gold by Neil Lane.

    Tracee was well aware of how smitten Evan had become. She said, "This is what Evan said to me, which I think is the cutest—he does, 'Tracee, I just think you know when you know, and I know.'"

    What else did Tracee tell me about her famous family? Check out the video below to find out.
