Dad-to-be and Sing-Off host Nick Lachey can’t wait to meet his first child with wife, Vanessa Lachey (formerly Minnillo) later this year. The NBC reality star says that they’ve already started thinking about names for their little one, and Nick is even thinking ahead to the baby’s delivery, and how he plans on being supportive without ending up on the hospital floor. It’s all about the vantage point!
“I’ve been told — because that’s what happens now, I’m told things — that it’s going to be a waist-up situation, if you know what I mean,” Nick told Live host Kelly Ripa on Tuesday (March 7), as he co-hosted the morning talk show.
“I’m gonna be there, I’m gonna be supportively there, holding hands, and coaching, breathing, all that good stuff,” Lachey, 38, explained. “But apparently I won’t be down below seeing what’s happening. I’ll be up above, helping.
“My work there is done!” Nick added with a laugh. “I was successful there. So we’ll keep it waist up.”
Hopefully, all goes well, and Nick will be better prepared for the second, third, and possibly fourth time around. According to Vanessa, the couple would like at least three kids.
“Three is the magic number,” the Wipeout host told Access Hollywood‘s Billy Bush last month. “We would love to, ultimately just have them be happy and healthy, but if I had a choice, I’d have two or three boys and then a girl.”
