Nick & Vanessa Lachey Are Expecting Their 3rd Child, & The Announcement Is So Cute


The Lachey family will soon be a party of five! Nick and Vanessa Lachey are expecting their third child together, and they announced the happy news on Instagram Friday, in a beautiful family photo taken in front of their new family home (perfect for a new addition, I'm sure). In the photo, the soon-to-be mom of three can be seen cradling her belly while holding her son Camdem's hand, while Nick stands excitedly holding onto their little girl, Brooklyn. While the picture seems to be announcing the fact that they've moved to new digs (the two kids are both standing atop moving boxes in front of the house), it turns out it also revealed the couple's pregnancy. In a text overlay, the photo reads, "We got a new crib! Now we need a new crib! Newest Lachey arriving spring 2017."

The couple, who have been married since 2011, have been upfront about how much they love being parents, and in June, Vanessa told E! News that she and Nick were definitely open to the idea of expanding their brood. She said,

It sounds like it did happen after all, and honestly, it's already pretty obvious they're going to be the cutest quintet of life. But there's no doubt that the already super busy family is about to get even busier, with three children under the age of 4. But according to Vanessa, the secret all lies in prioritizing. She told Hollywood Take,

It also don't hurt matters that she considers Nick to be an amazing partner, though. Vanessa told E! News,

And Nick definitely seems to agree. The former boy-bander told Us Weekly that Vanessa is an "incredible" mom to their children, and echoed her sentiments about the importance of putting their marriage first:

Although the couple will have even less time to themselves once their third child arrives, it seems pretty clear that they are super in love and devoted to their growing family. So chances are, one way or another, they'll find a way to make it work.
