Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson 'get marriage counseling'

Jessica Simpson and her husband are reportedly attending marriage counselling.

The 34-year-old star tied the knot with former NFL player Eric Johnson last July, after almost four years of dating, and they have kids Maxwell (two), and Ace (19 months) together.

Both parties had walked down the aisle before this, with Jessica previously wed to Nick Lachey and Eric saying 'I do' to ex-wife Keri.

'They know how easily things can fall apart'

Following their divorces, it's believed the couple have taken onboard some valuable lessons and have decided to seek help amid an alleged rough patch.

"Both Jess and Eric have been married before, so they know how easily things can fall apart," an insider told US OK! magazine. "They're hoping marriage counselling is the answer.

"They want to make things work, not just for themselves but for the sake of their children. It was Jessica's idea to get some guidance, and Eric quickly agreed."

It's thought an argument earlier this month is one of the triggers behind their decision. While out for dinner at Hollywood's Chateau Marmont, an eyewitness recalls Jessica and Eric having a dispute in the restaurant.

This public spat was apparently an eye-opener for the couple and they were quick to act on it the next day, when they realised they hadn't enjoyed themselves during a date night without their little ones. And the rumoured counselling sessions appear to be going well, as the couple showed how loved up they were after Valentine's Day last weekend. Jessica took to Instagram to upload some racy snaps of the pair, with one photo showing Eric topless, gripping the bare thigh of his wife. "V-Day #FIFTYSHADESOFJOHNSON (sic)" she captioned the photo, referring to sexy new film Fifty Shades of Grey.

I'm so in love with you #FIFTYSHADESOFJOHNSON
