“Thanks to everyone for all the well-wishes! It means a lot to Vanessa and I. Who’s guessing? Boy or girl?”, tweeted the soon-to-be dad in excitement.
Vanessa Minnillo Lachey (she opted to take her husband last name) also tweeted a follow-up, “Finally, Nick and I are ready to share our news … We have been blessed with a little angel! “We can’t wait to meet Baby Lachey!!!”
The Lacheys have already picked out a name if it’s a baby girl, “If it’s a girl, I think it might be Sophia. If it’s a boy, I’m not sure.” Can we say play dates with Jessica Simpson’s child in the near future?!
Since announcing the news, pictures were released of the couple aboard a yacht in Cabo san Lucas with Vanessa dressed in graphic print maxi dress, fitted cap, over sized shades and of course a growing baby bump. Who doesn’t love baby bumps?!
As the couple continue to gush about their baby on board, Nick returned to his co-hosting duties on Live with Kelly Ripa and shared his plans in the delivery room come late summer/early fall,
“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,” said Lachey to Ripa.
“I’m gonna be there, I’m gonna be supportively there, holding hands, and coaching, breathing, all that good stuff,” he continued. “But apparently I won’t be down below, seeing what’s happening. I’ll be up above, helping.”
