Jessica Simpson will reportedly wed her fiance, Eric Johnson, shortly after giving birth to their second child.
The 32-year-old "Fashion Star" mentor, who has stayed mum on her due date, is expected to give birth to her second child in coming weeks and a source claims she is more eager than ever to marry Johnson, 33. Simpson celebrated her country-themed baby shower on April 14 in Los Angeles, where she reportedly spoke openly about wedding plans.
"[Jessica] was telling friends she wanted to get married a few months after the baby is born," a source told Us magazine.
"Jessica said, 'Let's have this wedding already before I get pregnant with another one!'" the source added.
The couple, who first got engaged in 2010, was forced to postpone their wedding twice due to unexpected pregnancies, but the pair is reportedly determined to walk down the aisle in 2013.
"Jessica and Eric are adamant they want to wed this year. Before they found out Jessica was expecting her second child, they'd already set the wheels in motion for a low-key ceremony," a source previously told RadarOnline.com.
"But then, they had to put their plans on ice when they discovered Jessica was pregnant. Plus, she wanted to avoid a clash with her best pal CaCee Cobb who had a wedding back in December," the source continued.
Simpson's recent baby shower celebration suggests that her due date is not too far away. The singer and Johnson, who is a retired NFL star, are said to be planning a summer wedding that could potentially take place abroad.
"When they were in Hawaii over the Christmas holidays, they checked out a couple of local spots where a small ceremony could be planned this summer," the source revealed.
"They're not completely against exchanging their vows in Los Angeles either, but would prefer to do it anywhere else other than their own home," the source added.
Simpson is said to be expecting a baby boy, with Us magazine sources claiming she and Johnson have chosen the name "Ace." The pair currently shares a 1-year-old daughter Maxwell Johnson, and their upcoming wedding will mark second marriages for both.
