Nick Lachey and wife Vanessa Minnillo (er, Lachey) got married and had a baby a couple of years ago, and now they’re ready to expand their family yet again: they’re expecting baby #2, and this time it’s a little girl!

Nick announced the news via Twitter, as you do, and it was kinda sweet:

It’s kinda sad how irrelevant these two are, but I think they’re sweet, I guess, and it’s good that they’re happy? I dunno, I’m trying to muster anything other than apathy when it comes to this news. Yay, babies?

Stars Without Makeup: Vanessa Minnillo is Pregnant, Eating Popcorn, I Guess

OK, so I’m not going to rip apart a non-makeuped pregnant lady for eating in bed, because why bother? I remember being pregnant, you know, and I also ate much more bizarre things in bed than popcorn. I gorged on spaghetti … sausage and peppers. I have stains on my mattress that may never come out.

So, no. No mockery here. Mockery-free, guys. But I am going to ask (in my customary questionable way), what the F-CK has Vanessa Minnillo done with her eyebrows? I mean, did she up and eat those, too? Why in God’s name would you tweeze your eyebrows so thin? Does she not realize that we’re not in 1999 anymore? Or that there are other methods of manicuring your facial hair other than using a single-blade bic?

I was torn between calling this post “Love It or Leave It” and “Stars Without Makeup,” but I probably should have just thought a little harder and combined the two, calling it “Stars Without Eyebrows and Where They Left Them.”

Vanessa Minnillo and Nick Lachey Are Going to Have a Baby!

Like, not figuratively, “maybe down the road” or anything, literally. These two are literally going to have a baby!

From Starpulse:

Nick Lachey and his new bride Vanessa Minnillo are expecting their first child less than a year after they wed.

The ex-98 Degrees star and his TV presenter wife got married in a secret ceremony in July last year and they announced on TV on Monday that Minnillo is pregnant.

Lachey tells “Live! With Kelly,” “She was in New York and I was in the Bahamas. She went to the store and got a pregnancy test and it came back positive. We’re having a baby!… This is the one thing that more than any other I’ve looked forward to, and it’s overwhelming.”

Lachey said the couple has already discussed a name for the child, adding, “If it’s a girl, I think it might be Sophia. If it’s a boy, I’m not sure.”

He also joked his wife’s baby bump was initially blamed on too many calories, saying, “It just looked like she had eaten a really big burrito for a while… She loves, she craves Mexican food right now. She could eat a burrito a day so you can imagine what our house smells like right about now.”

The baby is due later this year.

Awesome! I mean, can you imagine what it’d be like if Jessica Simpson wasn’t pregnant at this juncture of her life and she heard this news? After Tony Romo being pregnant and having babies and what not with his new girlfriend or wife or whatever she is these days? Man. So glad Jess beat Nick to the punch on this one, because if she hadn’t, it’d be some pretty uncomfortable circumstances when she and Nick rekindle their romance thirty or forty years down the road and air all of their past errors on a redux of Newlyweds. Thank God for small favors, you know?

Oh, and congrats to Nick and Vanessa! Looking forward to seeing that burgeoning baby bump on Winter Wipeout (I’m not the only one who does watch that show, right?).

Nick Lachey is Marrying Another Idiot, So By Default, He’s Also an Idiot

Nick Lachey was famously married to the sweet but loony Jessica Simpson for a few years (you may have seen something on TV about that, *eyeroll*) but that doesn’t seem to be stopping him from marrying someone who seems equally ditzy.

Vanessa Minnillo recently did an interview with about her upcoming wedding/marriage to Nick and after reading what she had to say, I have to wonder if their marriage is just going to be Newlyweds: The Remix. I’ve pulled some of Vanessa’s best (read: worst) quotes from the piece to share with you here:

On why she knows things with Nick will last forever: “The best part is that you know someone has your back, no matter what. It’s not that I didn’t know that before – I kind of teetered on it – but now I know for sure that no matter what, this guy’s got my back. There’s nothing we can’t work out, and there’s nothing we can’t talk through. There’s no obstacle we can’t overcome, and that’s a beautiful, comforting thought.”

On her wedding cake: “I love all flavors. I might have to do different layers and different flavors.”

On whether or not her dog will be the ring bearer at her wedding: “If he is, it’s going to take a lot of training and discipline, because right now he’s just too shy. He’d panic down the aisle and probably run off with the rings. Maybe I should get started on that, right?”

1) What exactly is it that she and Nick have seen each other through? The end of his messy, public divorce? Both of their careers floundering as the public loses interest in them at a rapid pace? These two haven’t run out of money, had a kid or even had to learn what it’s like to live life completely out of the spotlight. How it is that she’s certain there’s nothing they can’t handle is unclear to me.

2) How can she decide on a life partner when she can’t even pick a flavor of cake to serve?

3) This woman doesn’t know how to say no. If a reporter asked me if I was going to strap a ring to my dog and send him running down the aisle at my wedding, I’d cock my head and say, “He’s a dog. No,” but instead Vanessa gives some 30-second explanation about how her dog is shy and needs training before he can be given that big of a responsibility. Get with it, home chicken.

Wedding Wars: Jessica Vs. Nick?

According to sources close to Jessica Simpson, girlfriend’s in such a frenzy to tie the knot with her boyfriend – the one that I still have not remembered a name, nor do I feel so inclined to Google it right now – before ex-husband Nick Lachey marries Vanessa Minnillo, and she’s willing to rush to fit everything in before Christmas in order to ‘win.’

We’re looking at a dual Christmas wedding here, guys.

According to friends of the blushing bride-to-be:

“She wants to beat Nick to the altar. She knows that it is going to be tough to pull everything together on such short notice, so it might have to be a New Years wedding. In any case, she wants the focus to be on her wedding. She doesn’t want her wedding to be the aftermath of his.”

Not only is Jessica allegedly pulling out all the stops in order to beat Nick and Vanessa to the altar, she’s also looking at dropping quite a considerable sum on the wedding, too, in an effort to upstage her ex’s nuptial plans:

“It will be big and elaborate. She’ll spare no expensive for fear that Nick and Vanessa will outdo her. She’s already starting planning everything and has every family member working on her big day.”

… This sounds like it’s going to end well. And incidentally, if you haven’t heard, Jessica is currently refusing to sign a pre-nup agreement with her boytoy, because it’s just not all that romantic, I guess. (And for all of you caught unaware of her previous marriage and it’s intricacies, she didn’t sign one with Nick Lachey, either, and he took her for 15 million.)

I hope none of this is true, and I really hope that Jess is smarter than most people give her credit for, but I’ll lay it down for you: the pre-nup thing really has me concerned, I’m not gonna lie.

Quotables: Jessica Simpson is So Happy For Nick Lachey

“I am extremely, extremely happy for him. I couldn’t be more happy for Nick. … My mom actually called me and told me that everybody was saying that I was ‘saddened.’ And I was just in complete shock. You know, our relationship was over a really long time ago, so it would be nice if everybody could move on with us and really just celebrate the love between him and Vanessa. I do, and I wish them nothing but the best.”

Do you, Jess? Do you really? Because you’re right; it doesn’t seem like anyone can really let this go. But I think these people often forget – you were the one who filed for divorce, weren’t you? You could still probably have that smarmy-voiced git if you really, really wanted him, you know. And people just don’t get it. Nick Lachey wouldn’t even have Vanessa Minnillo if it weren’t for you, girl. And don’t let that torture you, ’cause you’re much better off without his oily arse.

You Should All Rejoice, Because Today is a Day of Engagement News Bliss

And all on a Friday, too. Who sets this shit up, because I want their number.

Jessica Simpson is reportedly saddened by the fact that ex-husband Nick Lachey popped the question to long-term girlfriend Vanessa Minnillo this past weekend. According to Us Weekly, Lachey lavished Minnillo with an Asscher cut diamond ring, which reaffirmed their commitment to one another:

“We’re excited and incredibly happy about our engagement and we look forward to a wonderful future together.”

Nick’s official take on things?:

“I popped the question on bended knee. I do a lot of squats so my knees are very strong.”

Um, congrats, guys. Vanessa, I hope you know what you’re getting yourself into. Jess … well, just take it easy. Don’t do anything rash like shaving your head or eating an entire honey-glazed ham. You’ll get past this, girl.

The other couple set to race down the aisle? Apparently it’s – wait for it, wait for it – LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian. Yup. After their schmoopy-sweet interview that I posted yesterday (and even I have to admit … I was kind of touched in an odd sort of way after watching), E! online has confirmed the status change on their relationship:

Though it didn’t happen on Halloween, the recently divorced actor indeed popped the question recently and the duo are engaged, a source tells E! News.

Well hells bells, y’all. Congratulations to both of you, all of you. Some people say that there’s nothing greater than that old institution of marriage, so let’s hope it all works out and you guys can remain as happy as you apparently are in this moment now.
