Nick & Vanessa Lachey Expecting First Baby Together!

By Radar Staff

Nick Lachey is going to be a first-time dad!

The hunky former boy bander — who’s now married to Vanessa Lachey (formerly Minnillo) — announced on Live! With Kelly Monday that the couple is expecting their first baby, due late summer or early fall.

Lachey  —  who was filling in as a  special guest co-host on Live!  — said that after Vanessa appeared on the show in early January, “she started to feel a little different, not herself. So she went to the store, got a pregnancy test, and it came back positive. So we are having a baby!”

Lachey told Ripa:  “I’ve had a chance to do a lot of great things in my career and my life, but this is the one thing that, more than any other, I look forward to. The fact that it’s actually here, it’s overwhelming.”

Lachey also said that at this time, he doesn’t know if it’s a boy or a girl, but he can’t wait to find out.

“We definitely want to know,” Lachey added. “I can’t take the knowledge that someone out there knows, but I don’t know. It’s like watching a sports game on TiVo.”

Nick, 38, and Vanessa, 31, tied the knot in July, 2011. Lachey’s ex-wife Jessica Simpson is also pregnant with her first child with fiancee Eric Johnson; she’s expected to give birth any day now.
