A family source said Emma, 26, hopes it will give her chance to heal a rift with her former jailbird dad Martin Rhys-Jones, 54.
And she is said to be secretly delighted by the postponement because it will give her time to get in shape after having the couple’s third baby, Axel.
She and Wales star Bale also believe a violent drugs feud which has engulfed her family will die down if they delay the wedding.
