Nick Lachey and his wife Vanessa Lachey were the subject of pregnancy rumors just this weekend, but it was nothing more than speculation. That all changed this morning though, as NBC‘s Sing-Off host has confirmed that the couple are indeed expecting! Read on for the baby scoop!
There’s a baby Lachey on the way!
“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,” the excited dad-to-be boasted this morning to Kelly Ripa on Live! With Kelly. Nick Lachey is looking forward to being a dad, which will come sometime in late summer or early fall, as he continued to gush: “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.”
Vanessa Lachey has yet to comment on the baby news, but she has recently stated how much she would love to have children, so we are certain that she is over the moon with excitement. The couple was recently rumored to be trying for a baby, so the news is probably not a huge shock to them, and another thing that will not be a shock will be the baby’s sex…that is if Nick gets his way! Nick Lachey went on to add that they intend to find out because: “I can’t take the knowledge that someone out there knows, but I don’t know.”
Congratulations to Nick and Vanessa Lachey! We can’t wait to hear what the happy couple will be having!
