Despite being greatly in love, don’t expect Nick Cannon and Selita Ebanks to follow the lead of Usher and Tameka Foster. Yet.

The former pair is excited to get married… at some point.

“I did my part!” Cannon told People magazine.”You did what you had to do … you made the commitment. Now it’s like, let’s just enjoy this for right now.”

The Drumline actor — who popped the question to Victoria’s Secret model Ebanks in May and dated Kim Kardashian in the past — says they haven’t set a date or a place for the ceremony.

“We haven’t really talked about a lot of that stuff. You’ve got to take it slow,” he says.

And it’s not as though the star doesn’t have his celebrity plate full in the meantime: Cannon will be hosting the Teen Choice Awards with Hilary Duff on August 26.

“It’s that preparation time to see if this is what you really want,” Cannon said about the engagement to Ebanks.

Nick is also a pal of Nicole Richie and Joel Madden, weighing in on the couple’s pregnancy by stating: “She had good parenting, so she’ll know how to get it going.”

But what kind of dad will Madden be? “He’ll be a cool dad. The coolest dad. Any rock ‘n’ roll dad is a cool dad.”

The kids of Tommy Lee surely agree.
