Nick Lachey: Business Before Babies
They may have tied the knot, but don?t look for a baby bump just yet! According to The Sing-Off host Nick Lachey, he and his Wipeout hostess wife, Vanessa Minnillo, are a little too preoccupied right now to be parents. ?There?s a lot going on,? Nick told In Touch when asked about expanding their family at the Tostitos Fiesta in the Square event benefiting Big Brothers Big Sisters of New York. ?We?re just enjoying being newlyweds.?
Despite the delay, Nick is certain that he and Vanessa, who wed in a fairy-tale Caribbean ceremony in July, will be the perfect mom-and-dad pair. ?We both take parenting seriously,? he explained. ?We very much look forward to that chapter of our lives when it comes.?
And more than six years after their split, Nick has only kind words for his expectant ex-wife, Jessica Simpson. ?I wish her all the best,? he said. ?And I mean it!?
For more on Nick's parenting plans ? and Vanessa?s reaction to his hesitation ? pick up the new issue of In Touch.
