Los Angeles: Singer-actress Jessica Simpson says she will marry fiance Eric Johnson after she gives birth to their first child.

The 31-year-old, who confirmed last month that she is expecting, says she doesn`t want to be a pregnant bride and so won`t be saying "I do" until the baby is born, reported Us magazine.

"We were always going to wait until after the baby. We flirted around with different dates before I found out I was pregnant, and thankfully we didn`t lock anything down. I want to enjoy the day... I`m glad we didn`t make a deposit.

"I just didn`t want to be stressed out. Now when I get stressed out it`s like 50 times worse. So I really want to enjoy that day and now I get to have my baby with me," Simpson said.

The actress announced her pregnancy on Halloween as she posted a picture of herself dressed as a mummy on JessicaSimpson.com with the caption, "It`s true, I`m going to be a mummy! My kid`s going to think I`m pretty cool. This is a cool thing to welcome him to the world with."
