Convicted murderer Joran van der Sloot, the man who is still the prime suspect in the 2005 disappearance of American Natalee Holloway in Aruba, is about to be a father and husband, according to multiple reports.

Van der Sloot's defense attorney, Maximo Altez, told CNN that his 26-year-old client will get married "in late May or early June" to 22-year-old Leydi Figueroa Uceda, a Peruvian woman who once worked in the Lima prison where he's being held.

Uceda is also reportedly five months pregnant with a boy, Altez said.

"He's very happy about getting married," Altez told CNN. "Since his girlfriend is pregnant, he wants his child to be born to a married couple and he's anxiously awaiting the day he can get married."

According to Altez, Uceda was selling goods inside Piedras Gordas prison when she met van der Sloot, who is serving a 28-year sentence for the 2010 murder of 21-year-old Stephany Flores. He also remains the top suspect in the unsolved 2005 disappearance of Alabama teen Natalee Holloway, in his native Aruba. Flores' murder happened exactly five years to the day of Holloway's disappearance.

Van der Sloot and Uceda are to be married in the prison, something that set off a handful of cynical Twitter reactions.

For her part, Uceda told CBS News' "Crimesider" that van der Sloot is "a new person," and said that Altez got her a wedding ring last year. She is still shopping for a wedding dress and trying to get a permit to videotape and photograph the ceremony.
