Back in March we first learned that happily marrieds Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo got pregs with their first child. A couple of weeks later, we learned that Vanessa was planning to take a gender test and she expressed her hope to have a baby boy. It would seem that the fates heard her pleas because according to “sources close to the couple”, she and Nick are expecting the birth of a son.
It looks like the Lacheys can start buying blue baby clothes! In Touch can exclusively reveal that Nick and Vanessa are expecting a boy. Sources tell In Touch that the mom-to-be and her hubby are “so thrilled” to be having a son, as Vanessa wants him to be able to take care of his future siblings. And while they have been discussing names, they “haven’t picked one yet,” a friend of the couple tells In Touch. Vanessa has been quiet about the sex of her baby, but tweeted in March that she “always wanted a boy first.” The duo looks forward to expanding their family in Nick’s home city of Cincinnati.
Honestly, I’m not entirely sure that I believe these sources dishing to In Touch Weekly magazine but, as always, these rumors have a 50/50 chance of being correct. The fact that Vanessa has already expressed her hope for a baby boy makes this story more marketable, if not plausible. Whether La-Nessa have a boy or a girl is irrelevant, as long as they have a healthy child I know that they will both be very, very happy. I suppose we shouldn’t really count on the arrival of Baby Boy Lachey until we hear something more official but, I guess there’s truly no harm here. It would be nice if Vanessa did get her wish by having the boy she wants.
