This engagement ring is no joke

Professional prankster, Johnny Knoxville has had a whirlwind couple of weeks lately, not only proposing to his longtime girlfriend, Naomi Nelson, but exchanging wedding rings a scant two weeks later, on September 24, 2010.
Although Knoxville is best known for “Jackass,” an MTV franchise that features a group of friends who pull horrible, but horribly funny pranks on one another, there is nothing funny about the engagement ring he purchased.

Nelson reportedly chose the ring herself, settling on a 2.5 carat Edwardian antique diamond ring, circa 1910-1915, and according to People magazine, Knoxville didn’t pick it up until the day before the wedding.
The couple, who already have a son together; Rocko Akira Clapp, who was born on December 20, 2009, have been together for two years. This is the second child and marriage for the reality star, who had his daughter Madison, with his ex-wife, clothing designer Melanie Clapp.

Knoxville, who has also starred in movies like “Men in Black” and the “Dukes of Hazards” remake, can soon be seen in 3D in the third installment of the “Jackass” movie trilogy. And despite a rushed engagement, the couple reportedly couldn’t be happier.
