Vanessa Minnillo, host of the ABC reality show True Beauty, has a lot to celebrate these days. Not only was she just engaged to long-time boyfriend and host of NBC’s The Sing-Off, Nick Lachey, but both Minnillo and Lachey both have birthdays today!
Minnillo, who turns 30 today, and Lachey, who turns 37, spent the weekend in Los Cabos, Mexico to celebrate, arriving at the popular vacation destination on Thursday.
The bride-to-be was seen snuggling up by the pool with her fiance on Sunday in a hot pink bikini and of course, her newest piece of jewelry, the engagement ring.
Vanessa’s ring–a platinum, Asscher cut diamond with trapezoids on the side–is from designer Bader & Garrin and is estimated to cost about $125,000.
After news of their engagement broke, the couple released a statement saying, “We’re excited and incredibly happy about our engagement and we look forward to a wonderful future together.”
This is Vanessa Minnillo’s first marriage, and the second for Nick Lachey, who started dating Minnillo shortly after he and ex-wife Jessica Simpson divorced in 2006.
Simpson reportedly spent the weekend in Washington, D.C. with her boyfriend, Eric Johnson.
