When Kanye West began rapping about white dresses -- and Kim Kardashian was subsequently seen trying one on -- we began to wonder whether wedding bells were in the couple's near future.

And so did Barbara Walters.

"What about marriage? Do you want his child? Where are we?" she not-at-all awkwardly asked Kim during an episode of "The View" in September.

But Kim is legally still married to NBA star Kris Humphries with whom she tied the knot in 2011. Though Kardashian filed for divorce more than a year ago, the proceedings have now lasted five times as long as their 72-day marriage.

However, a source close to Kardashian tells Us Weekly that it's likely Kim and Kanye will settle down soon enough.

"Kim thinks they'll get engaged and try for a baby once the divorce is final," said the insider. "Kanye is actually being very patient."

But of course, the pair will wait until a divorce or an annulment is granted before interviewing wedding planners.

"After the backlash from ending her 72-day marriage with Kris, Kim would never get engaged until everything was properly handled," a friend told Us Weekly. "There are no wedding plans, period. She and Kanye are taking their time. That's the truth."

And as for starting a family, on a recent episode of "Good Morning America," Kim discussed whether visiting a fertility clinic with sister Khloe made her eager to have children, telling host Lara Spencer, "It was really informative to go with Khloe." But, "I don't think I'm ready yet."
