Govan and Fisher, a former NBA player and current head coach for the Los Angeles Sparks, confirmed to PEOPLE on March 20 that they are rescheduling their April wedding.
“It was just based off of what the CDC advised and the current state of affairs,” explained Govan of the decision. “We just felt like it was in everyone’s best interest, really.”
She added, “So we were like, ‘Yeah, it’s just probably best to postpone.’ We had a few people traveling, a lot of our parents and aunts and uncles who are a little older. So we felt like it was in their best interest, and for everybody, to just not put anyone at risk. It was obviously a really crappy decision to have to make.”
The wedding will still happen eventually, of course — joked Govan, “I still like him. I’m gonna keep him around for a while.”
“We have a great wedding planner,” she added. “Erica Friedman is absolutely brilliant. She’s been really sweet with handling the vendors for us, you know, and explaining the situation.”
