"The night he proposed, he told Jen that he wanted her to have his child. She's been joking that in a perfect world it will happen on the wedding night," a source told the publication. "In truth, she'll be overjoyed whenever it happens; if that means she has to walk down the aisle with a baby bump and do her toasts with apple cider, then so be it. It's no secret she wanted a baby yesterday, so they're not wasting any time. She's not in denial; she knows it may be difficult."
