Tommy Hilfiger will marry his girlfriend, Dee Ocleppo, on Friday night, PEOPLE has learned.

A source close to the designer confirmed on Friday afternoon for PEOPLE, "He is getting married tonight."

Reports that the couple had tied the knot earlier in the day are not true, according to the source.

Hilfiger has been dating Ocleppo – ex-wife of 1980s Italian tennis star Gianni Ocleppo – for three years, and gave her an 8.2-carat diamond engagement ring. The two were originally due to wed in August.

Hilifger, 57, has four children from a previous marriage, including Rich Girls Ally Hilfiger. Ocleppo has two.

Friday's upcoming wedding was first reported by the New York Post.
