Vanessa Minnillo Celebrates Marriage With Twitter Change

Four months ago former 98 Degrees singer Nick Lachey and Wipeout host Vanessa Minnillo took things to the next level when they wed and now Vanessa has used Twitter to celebrate her marriage.

On her Twitter account Vanessa changed her former handle of @VanessaMinnillo to the last name of her newlywed husband and then tweeted:

“I LOVE my ‘new name’! @VanessaLachey? has a nice ring to it.”

Speaking to PEOPLE husband Nick Lachey recently said they were “very comfortable” with one another and “happy in our life together” while adding they are now now back to “work and back to the routine.”

Fans of Minnillo…um I mean Mrs. Lachey can catch her co-hosting ABC’s Countdown to the American Music Awards with Chris Harrison on Sunday at 7 p.m. ET.

Do you think her change of name will hurt her Twitter standing or should the practice be used more often by celebrities who get married and change their names?
