Jessica Simpson reportedly wants to get married right after her second baby is born.
After being engaged to fiance Eric Johnson for over two years, having a one-year-old daughter named Maxwell with him and getting pregnant again, the Fashion Star mentor is looking forward to finally walking down the aisle as soon as possible, Us Weeklyreported.
While enjoying her baby shower in April, Simpson "was telling friends she wanted to get married a few months after the baby is born," a source told Us. "Jessica said, 'Let's have this wedding already before I get pregnant with another one!'"
Simpson and Johnson intended to wed after Maxwell was born in May 2012, however, parenting became too time consuming for the couple to engage in wedding planning and Simpson learned soon afterwards she had surprisingly gotten pregnant again.
"I keep planning on getting married but I keep getting knocked up," Simpson, who doesn't want to be a bride with a baby bump, told Jimmy Kimmel during a March appearance on his show in which she also confirmed she is having a boy.
"[I] would like to stop being pregnant."
Simpson made the announcement she's expecting Johnson's second child in a Christmas Day tweet in which she posted a holiday photo of Maxwell sitting in the sand with "BIG SIS" written in the sand in front of her.
Simpson is reportedly trying to eat healthier this time around so she can quickly drop the baby weight for her upcoming nuptials. She had previously signed a reported $4 million endorsement deal with Weight Watchers following Maxwell's birth which resulted in her dropping 70 pounds before her progress was unexpectedly derailed by the new pregnancy.
"The chef is there all day [at her California home]," another source told Us. "Jessica eats things like egg whites and sausage. It's healthier."
Simpson, 32, and Johnson, a 33-year-old retired former NFL player, got engaged in late 2010.
