Vanessa Minnillo and hubby, Nick Lachey are expecting a baby. Nick confirmed the happy news this morning on Live! With Kelly. Vanessa is already about 12 weeks along and is due late summer or early fall. This will be the first baby for both Vanessa and Nick who were married last July. Nick’s first wife, Jessica Simpson, is about to give birth to her first baby too with her fiance, Eric Johnson. We have been following Jess’ bump for months and just this morning we saw gorgeous pics of her and her big belly hanging out on Laguna beach. It is interesting timing that just as Jess prepares to birth her baby, Vanessa and Nick announce they’re expecting. Exciting news tho!
On the morning show today Nick told the world how he is going to be a dad and couldn’t be happier.
“She [Vanessa] started to feel a little different, not herself, so she went to the store, got a pregnancy test, and it came back positive. So we are having a baby! I’ve had a chance to do a lot of great things in my career and my life but this is the one thing that, more than any other, I look forward to. The fact that it’s actually here, it’s overwhelming.”
It is very cute how excited Nick and Vanessa are. Just a few weeks in, and they’ve already decided on some names. Nick said, “If it’s a girl, I think it might be Sophia. If it’s a boy, I’m not sure.” Little Sophia Lachey…. sweet! Vanessa hasn’t made a public statement yet but she has previously told of her desires to be a mom and have a family. In 2011 she told People mag, “I would love to have children and work”I definitely don’t want it to slow me down. I’m always going to be, ‘Go, go, go.’ And I’m going to be pregnant, fat and happy through it all.”
This is wonderful news! Lets all send our congratulations out to the Lachey family.
