Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo welcomed their first child last night. The happy couple have been enjoying wedded bliss for the past year and are overjoyed by the newest edition to their family. Lachey announced the birth to his fans saying,
“We are incredibly proud to announce the birth of our beautiful baby boy, Camden John Lachey. Born today at 6:54 p.m., he came into this world at 8 lbs., 9 oz. and 21 inches. Love has truly been redefined for both of us.”
The news of the birth of the littlest Lachey comes just a few months after his ex, Jessica Simpson, gave birth to her own bundle of joy. The two split in 2005, and have since been caught in a heated battle of who can lead the happier life. For a while there Nick was the clear winner, moving on seamlessly with various starlets like Kim Kardashian, before settling down with the former VJ, Minnillo.
After announcing their engagement in November 2010, Jessica quickly announced her own engagement to NFL boyfriend Eric Johnson, just a week and a half later. Even though Nick beat her to the engagement and wedding, as Simpson and Johnson have yet to tie the knot, she at least one upped him on the birth of her daughter Maxwell.
Even if the rivalry is just gossip fodder, it’s nice to know the former Newlyweds stars have both moved on successfully and hopefully can wish each other well on their journey through parenthood.
