“In some ways, it’s a wonderful gift for her to give to her dad considering that she’ll have to do a lot of the planning while pregnant. But everyone in the family knows that time is of the essence,” the source added.

As for The Sixth Sense star, the insider said he is already planning to walk Rumer down the aisle and give a big speech.”

“It gives him something to look forward to and fight for — along with the birth of Rumer’s baby!” the source noted.

"They know he won't be around forever," the insider added. "Demi has been in constant contact with Bruce and [his current wife] Emma.”

"She's taking every opportunity she can to spend time with him. If she's not there by his side, she's calling on the phone just so Bruce can hear her voice."

"Bruce can't say much, and it doesn't seem like he's grasping much of what others say," the insider said. "So Emma's really been the voice and communicator for him."
