Jessica Simpson is delaying her wedding due to her pregnancy.

The 31-year-old singer - who is currently expecting her first child - is halting plans to marry former NFL star Eric Johnson for the moment so the pair can "enjoy" their time together.

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

"It's just going to be at a later date now because they really want to enjoy this time in their lives."

Although the baby was not "planned" they were not actively "trying to avoid" having one.

The source added to "They're really excited. It wasn't something they planned per se, but it's also not something they were trying to avoid.

"They're both very family-oriented and having a baby is something they both wanted. It's wonderful."

Although it has been claimed for some time Jessica is expecting, she only confirmed the news on Monday (31.10.11), where she posted a picture of herself on social network twitter revealing she was going to be a "mummy".
