Jess and Eric announced their engagement last November (2010), and since then, rumors have swirled about the details of the impending nuptials. Everything from the date to the rumored pre-wedding breast reduction Jess was reportedly planning were dissected over and over again in the media.
According to People, the couple will wait until after their first child arrives to walk down the aisle. "They're really excited," a source told the publication of the pregnancy. "They're both very family-oriented and having a baby is something they both wanted. It's wonderful," the source added. "It wasn't something they planned per se, but it's also not something they were trying to avoid."
Happy as the couple may be, unplanned parenthood did cause Jessica and Eric to put the brakes on planning their November 2011 wedding. "They're both still really committed to getting married, and were both really into making decisions about what kind of wedding they wanted," the source claimed.
"It's just going to be at a later date now [because] they really want to enjoy this time in their lives." And despite rumors that the couple is expecting a girl, another source told People that the couple actually does not know the sex of their baby.
