Nick Lachey, American singer, songwriter, actor, producer and television personality who was once a member of the now defunct boyband 98 degrees, has finally got himself engaged with Vanessa Minnillo, former Miss Teen USA and a New York-based correspondent for Entertainment Tonight.
Lachey and Minnillo have a four-year old romance and are now getting ahead in life.
In a statement in US Magazine, “We’re excited and incredibly happy about our engagement and we look forward to a wonderful future together,” said Nick, 37, and Vanessa, 30.
Lachey happily tweeted the great news: “Hey all. If anyone’s heard the rumors of my engagement, they are absolutely true! Vanessa and I couldn’t be happier. Thanks for all the love….I popped the question on bended knee. I do a lot of squats so my knees are very strong.”
A lot of people knew former wife Jessica Simpson had an awkward dispute with Nick and Vanessa. And it is very obvious that she is one of the people who is not happy about this announcement.
No wedding date has been announced yet though Nick will probably be the first one to remarry as Jessica has only been dating her boyfriend, Eric Johnson, for less than a year. Hopefully, Nick, who described Vanessa as “a very smart girl” during an interview last year with Good Day Philadelphia, won’t make the same mistake and do another Newlyweds 2.0 type of reality show, despite the fact that there are probably a lot of people who’d love to see one of his and Vanessa’s intimate, soapy, shower-talks on tape!
