The Real Life host Vanessa Lachey is pregnant again. On Friday, the 35-year-old star and her 42-year-old singer husband, Nick Lachey, made an announcement using a cleverly crafted matching photo on their Instagram accounts. In that Instagram post, Vanessa’s growing baby bump has a heart drawn around it.
As we already know, Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo got married in 2011 and have two children together. Their son, Camden John is 3-years-old right now, and will turn 4 later this month. While their daughter, Brooklyn Elisabeth is 19-months-old.
The Instagram post of the Lacheys had two captions scribbled on it. The first one read “We got a new crib! Now we need a new CRIB!” while the second one etched close to Vanessa’s pregnant-belly said, “Newest Lachey arriving Spring 2017.”
The couple captioned the sweet family photo with the text “#LacheyPartyOf5… and Wookie!” and emojis representing each family member and their pet. The Disaster Movie star along with her 98 Degrees singer husband and her kids took the photo outside their new home, reported US Weekly.
Fans quickly poured in their best wishes for the couple in the form of messages such as “Very cute announcement! Congrats! Such a beautiful family” and “That house is Beautiful it use to Belong to #1DivaJENNIRIVERA I use to watch her Show “I LOVE JENNI”….Now the House Belongs to this Beautiful Family!Good Luck in your new Show.”
In late July, Nick reportedly paid $4.15 million for the estate that belonged to the late Mexican-American singer Jenni Rivera, according to Daily Mail. It was a gift to Vanessa on their fifth wedding anniversary after selling their $3.995 million abode in the same vicinity. Like a gentleman, Nick paid tribute to Jenni in an emotional letter to Rivera family after buying the home, according to Entertainment Tonight.
“We just wanted to make it clear that it’s a special home to us as well and all the great memories that they have, we hope to create our own memories in their honor.”
Earlier this week, the singer-songwriter returned after finishing a nostalgia-inducing “My2k Tour” with his 98 Degrees band members in Kansas. In the same week, Vanessa shared the bare essential tips about throwing a “Kid’s Backyard Camping Party” on her website. She had cleverly dropped a hint about a third child with the noteworthy advice of taking some time out to create lasting memories. That glow of expecting is quite visible in the photos and the credit to the photographer for smartly hiding Vanessa’s pregnant bump. Meanwhile, Nick was helping kids build a fort and grilled some corn.
“What better way to utilize your backyard than throwing a summer bash or two… or three?”
Both Vanessa and Nick admit that parenthood has changed their lives. Last year, when Vanessa was pregnant with her second child, Brooklyn, she modestly talked about a lot she had to learn about pregnancy, and more importantly, parenting. The Inquisitr had compiled her great parenting tips.
Nick gives credit to parenthood for changing his life. Back in 2011, he released his lullaby album titled A Father’s Lullaby when his son Camden was 6-months-old. Many assumed that Camden must be Nick’s biggest fan. Apparently, he’s not. According to Entertainment Tonight, whenever Nick sings in the house, his son asks him to stop singing and doesn’t understand that other people pay his father for the talent.
The couple didn’t share how far along Vanessa is pregnant, but hinted that the third Lachey is due in Spring 2017. Would you like to see their journey in the second season of their reality show, Lachey’s: Raising Bar? Share your views in the comments section below.
