Jessica Simpson and Tony Romo are set to get married.
'The Dukes of Hazzard' star, who has been dating American football star Tony since her father Joe set them up last November, is reportedly planning to tie the knot for a second time.
A source close to the couple said: "Jessica has never been happier than she is when she's with Tony. She knows her first marriage didn't work out, but she has a really good feeling about this one, and wants to make her feelings for Tony clear."
However, a friend of the singer - who was previously married to singer Nick Lachey - says the story is an elaborate stunt constructed by Jessica to promote her upcoming country music album.
The pal told America's OK! magazine: "I think it's a press stunt. She always leaks information about her faux love life when she's desperate to get her face on magazine covers!"
It was recently revealed Jessica is planning a new reality TV show documenting the release of her album.
A representative for CMT, the US TV network expected to broadcast the show, said: "We have had exploratory talks with Jessica's camp, but nothing has been confirmed or signed."
