Former pop star 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 (11) and they announced on U.S. TV on Monday (05Mar12) 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 (12).
