No date yet set for pop idols' wedding

By |

Twenty-one-year-old singer Jessica Simpson and twenty-eight-year-old Nick Lachey -- of 98 Degrees -- are engaged to be married. Lachey popped the question on a yacht off the coast of Hawaii on February 10th.

The couple briefly split last year, but reconciled after September 11th. "I knew that I never watned to be away from Nick for the rest of my life," Simpson said. "I have dreamt of this moment my entire life and now my prince charming has come."

The couple has not yet made specific wedding plans.

Meanwhile, according to a post on their Web site, Lachey's 98 Degrees are on an "extended break," with "no immediate plans to tour or record." The group's fan club is also not accepting new members, and instead will fulfill obligations to existing members and then "bring activities to a close."
