Pregnant Jessica Simpson to Marry Eric Johnson After Birth of Child

by at . Comments

This has been quite the whirlwind year for Jessica Simpson.

The former signer/actress became engaged to former NFL tight end Eric Johnson last November, and recently confirmed she is pregnant after weeks of speculation.

"They're really excited," a source tells People of the pregnancy. "It wasn't something they planned per se, but it's also not something they were trying to avoid."

Still, it did cause the couple to put their wedding on hold.

"They're both still really committed to getting married, and were both really into making decisions about what kind of wedding they wanted," says the source.

The nuptials were originally set for this month, but when Jess got pregnant, they decided to put it off and will likely marry next year after the baby's birth.

The source insists that yes, they will marry, and soon: "It's just going to be at a later date now [because] they really want to enjoy this time in their lives."

"They're both very family-oriented and having a baby is something they both wanted," the source says, adding that they both believe, "It's wonderful!"

Jessica has yet to reveal the sex of the baby or which celebrity news magazine she prefers for the inevitable introductory photo spread for her spawn.

Jessica, please wait and please,sign a pre-nup. He has nothing to offer and you have everything. Protect your assets. He will be taken care of, I'm sure - with the pre-nup.

Idon't think I will ever understand celebrities. Why wait to get married if you're pregnant. When you get married after the baby is born, the baby is still considered an out of wedlock baby. Poor Jessica does she think anyone cares about her sad little life?
