"He has been ready to settle down for a while," says the source. "He can’t wait to have a family. He was just waiting for the right girl."

"She is beautiful, smart and just a good person," the source adds. "She is involved in charity work and truly cares about doing good. She is a very positive and happy person. It’s rubbed off on him. It's the best news that they are married."
