As the new host of VH1’s Big Morning Buzz Live, Nick Lachey has to wake up early (5:30 a.m., to be exact!). Luckily, the former boy-bander has plenty of experience with predawn call times, thanks to Camden, his 17-month-old son with his wife of two years, Vanessa Minnillo.
“Being a father isn’t always easy,” Nick tells In Touch in an exclusive interview, “but it’s so rewarding. It’s easily the best thing I ever did.”
The new dad reveals to the In Touch that he and Vanessa are ready for baby No. 2 - and they’re thinking pink! “We definitely want to have more, but I don’t have a time frame,” he dishes. “It would be fun to have a girl!”
It doesn’t seem that long ago that Nick and Vanessa announced the birth of their son but Camden is growing up fast! “He’s running around like a maniac now, and he’s starting to really talk,” Nick shares with In Touch. “It’s so fun to see how he’s absorbing everything we say, like it’s all starting to click. And not just a word here and there — full sentences! The other day he said, ‘Bye, Daddy,’ which was pretty cool. All of a sudden, he’s a little kid who you can talk to, who talks back.”
It can’t be said whether or not Nick and Vanessa’s baby boy has a singing voice like his father’s but Nick tells In Touch that he sings to his son regularly. “I wrote a song for him called ‘Sleepy Eye’ and that’s my favorite,” he enthusiastically tells the mag.
