Santa didn't bring Jessica Simpson everything she wanted for Christmas this last holiday. Case in point: She still really wants to get married.
With luck, it'll happen in the year 2014.
"We need to get married," Simpson said Tuesday on "Good Morning America," referring to herself and fiance Eric Johnson. They've been engaged since November 2010, but haven't really found the time to tie the knot, what with having a couple of babies and all.
"I already feel like we're like an old married couple already," Simpson said. "If he wanted to run, he could have run when I was hormonal and pregnant."
With daughter Maxwell born in May 2012 and son Ace coming along about 14 months later in June 2013, "it's been a long 2½ years," the singer-actress-fashionista said.
She'll have a shorter road this time from pregnancy size to wedding-dress weight, however. When Simpson was pregnant the first time, she said, "I just let myself have whatever I wanted, I didn't care, it wasn't about weight gain to me."
But gain she did -- enough that it became a topic of gossip before and after she delivered. Since then, however, she's become a paid spokeswoman for Weight Watchers and kept a closer eye on her lifestyle while she was pregnant with Ace.
"I had already lost over 50 pounds so I wasn't as relaxed in my eating as I was with Maxwell," she said.
So, will 2014 be the Year of the Wedding, finally, for Jessica?
"We don't have an actual date," Simpson said, "but we do know that we want it to be this year."
