Jessica Simpson has set a new wedding date.

The singer, who is pregnant with her second child and due to give birth to a baby boy, is planning to tie the knot with her fiance Eric Johnson, 33, just one month after their son arrives.

A source told gossip website that the couple, who are already parents to 11-month-old daughter Maxwell Drew, have decided they want to get married this year after postponing their previous wedding when Jessica found out she was pregnant again.

"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," the source said.

"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.

"So, Jessica and Eric have had to wait it out for the time being. 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.

"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."

Jessica, 32, previously revealed she has had to keep postponing the big day because she is always getting pregnant.

"I keep planning on getting married, but I keep getting knocked up," Simpson said.

"It's just one of those things. Maybe I should go back to when I was younger, I was a virgin before I was married, so maybe I should just completely reverse and stop having sex altogether until Eric and I actually say I do."
