They were was due to wed in Capri, Italy in the first week of June this year but Virginia told the Herald that the nuptials were delayed due to family reasons and that they hoped to wed in August instead.
Her actress sister Sonya gave birth to her first child on August 21st and Virginia cited the baby's arrival as a reason for delaying the wedding.
"It will be this autumn, but we haven't set a date yet because we want to wait until after the baby comes," Virginia told the Herald.
"We could book it for August, but then the baby could be a few weeks late, so you just never know with these things."
She was due to fly to LA to scout out wedding dresses in March, but also put that on hold.
"I already knew that the wedding was going to be put back so I didn't think there would be much point," she said. "But I have a few ideas about what I want.
"Family stuff makes you realise that there are more important things in life."
