The heavily pregnant TV star – who is expecting a baby girl on July 13 – was due to tie the knot with Kevin Manno later this summer.
However, owing to the recent outbreak of the Zika virus south of the border, the couple have decided to postpone their imminent nuptials and find another location for their ‘I do’s.
Describing it as a ‘huge disappointment’, Ali told The Knot: “We were super excited. We found the most amazing location and villa that would allow our entire family to stay with us. Then, all the news broke about the Zika virus and we had to cancel”.
The virus – which is spread by mosquitos – has been linked to birth defect microcephaly, whereby a baby is born with an abnormally small head.
Ali continued: “It was such a huge disappointment. Even though we won’t be pregnant when we get married, we just didn’t think it was fair to ask our guests to travel to a location with active Zika virus transitions. Most of our friends are in ‘baby mode’ and that just wasn’t a fair ask”.
Ali and Kevin announced their engagement in September 2015, and were originally planning to marry in January 2016 before deciding on their Mexican celebration.
