The Lacheys are expecting baby number two, a girl.
Can’t think of a better way to celebrate 3 years of marriage to my beautiful Vanessa than this. I do want a girl. I think there’s something emotional about having a daughter that I definitely want to experience.
Lachey releases the cover art for his upcoming album A Father’s Lullaby. In a release for the album he says:
When I first learned that I was going to be a father, I was inspired to create a special tribute to my son. Music has always been an incredibly significant part of my life and a meaningful way in which I express myself.
Seacrest interviews Lachey during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and asks him why he wont name his son Nick JR.
It is not Nick. I wouldn’t want to do that. I just feel like he has his own identity and is not in any way involved in mine. So, it’s good for him to have his own name.
Seacrest interviews Lachey during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about a possible 98 Degrees Reuniting.
I think we’ve all been lucky in the 11 years since we last performed together to go on and do stuff individually. Drew was the winner of “Dancing with the Stars” season 2 and I’ve gone and done some solo stuff. But there really is nothing like coming together as a unit, as a group, as a band, on the stage, and I think we all miss that. We all miss the rush of being on stage together, performing together, and certainly the fans have kind of been clamoring for it, so it just felt right. We always said we were not broken up, we were just taking a break and now it just seemed like the right time to put everything back together.
Lachey and Minnillo get married. The two exchange vows at the top of a cliff overlooking the ocean on Necker Island. The couple also allow MTV to capture their wedding on camera.
We kind of wrestled with that for a while, for obvious reasons. Having done reality TV in the past, I didn’t necessarily want to jump right back into it without having thought it through to great length, and we did.
Lachey pops the question to Minnillo and she says yes. He presents her with a Asscher-cut diamond flanked with trapezoids from Bader & Garrin.
We’re excited and incredibly happy about our engagement and we look forward to a wonderful future together.
Lachey and Minnillo are spotted back together, while travelling.
I am happy in a relationship. I was single for a minute, there, and then we’ve kind of patched things up.
Lachey and Minnillo have break up. No details as to why the couple split.
They have amicably split but remain good friends who still greatly care for one another.
Simpson and Lachey appear on the cover of People after they separate. Lachey thinks he is entitled to spousal support and Simpson does not want to pay. Lachey on receiving a gala award:
In all honesty, it is a little ironic to receive this award right now. Because in some ways I feel like this is a point in my life when I’ve never been more afraid. I’d like to thank the people who allow me to be fearless. My friends and my family.
Simpson and Lachey divorce after three years of marriage.
After three years of marriage, and careful thought and consideration, we have decided to part ways. This is the mutual decision of two people with an enormous amount of respect and admiration for each other. We hope that you respect our privacy during this difficult time.
