'Lachey Party of 5': Vanessa and Nick Lachey welcome third child


Vanessa and Nick Lachey welcomed their third child, Phoenix Robert Lachey, over the holiday weekend, taking to Instagram Monday to break the news.
"We had our Christmas miracle," the actress/TV personality and singer-songwriter wrote in duplicate posts, which showed their newborn son gripping Vanessa's hand. "Phoenix Robert Lachey decided to show up early and was born on Christmas Eve. Mommy, Daddy, Camden & Brooklyn LOVE You very much! #LacheyPartyOf5"
The couple, who wed in 2011, welcomed their daughter Brooklyn Elisabeth Lachey on Jan. 5, 2015, and their eldest son Camden on Sept. 12, 2012.
Nick has previously opened up about how fatherhood impacted him, tellingPeople magazine in May 2013: "I had a lot of expectations for what fatherhood would be because I thought about it for so long but when it happens, it blows your mind every day. This little creature that you created, that looks to you and depends on you, and just brings you so much joy, you just can’t put it into any kind of words. Your kids are the biggest blessing you could ever possibly have in life."
Hence, the emphasis on prioritizing their children as they continue to juggle professional opportunities.
"Nick and I always put our family first," Vanessa told Hollywood Take in December 2015. "If you do that, everything else falls into place. If an opportunity pops up that doesn’t allow our family life or where we can’t be together, then we pass on it. It’s all about time management and prioritizing. You can manage your day because you know you’re doing everything for your family."

Dad of Three Nick Lachey Jokes 'Short of a Surgical Procedure,' More Kids Is 'Always an Option'



Three is definitely the magic number when it comes to Nick Lachey‘s kid count.
“[My wife Vanessa] and I always, in the back of our minds, wanted three kids. So here we are at three, and it’s awesome,” the 98 Degrees member tells PEOPLE.
But just because the Lacheys have an idea in mind doesn’t mean they will necessarily cap their family expansion after the recent birth of son Phoenix Robert, 2 weeks.
“Short of a surgical procedure, I guess it’s always an option, but I’ve given up on trying to predict these things,” jokes Lachey, 43. “Apparently there’s a way to make babies and we’re fairly good at it, so you never know. But I think right now, three feels like a very good number.”

Though the singer is busy being a new dad to three kids — he and Vanessa also share daughter Brooklyn Elisabeth, 2, and son Camden John, 4 — he admits Phoenix is giving him a very important role since his arrival on Christmas Eve.
“Right now he’s [a] newborn, so it’s more about Mom than it is about Dad,” Lachey says. “But the cool thing about that is it’s given me a lot of time to spend with the other two and pal around with Camden and Brooklyn.”
Lachey admits that though he’s a “slightly bigger pushover” than his wife, he says both he and Vanessa are easier on their kids “in different ways.”
“There’s definitely something to the ‘Daddy’s girl’ thing — my daughter can have her way with me pretty easily,” he explains, “although she’s now turning 2 and it’s starting to get to be the terrible twos, where you gotta put the hammer down a little bit.”
He adds, “She’s still adorable, it’s just she’s adorable [while] she’s screwing up.”

The father of three’s older son does take after Dad in one very special way, though.
“Camden loves to sing, so this summer, when we were touring, he came out [during 98 Degrees’ performance of ‘Because of You’] and followed Dad around stage and sang,” Lachey recounts.
“You can tell that music is definitely something he’s into,” he adds. “And that’s what’s cool — you don’t know what your kids are gonna be drawn to or what’s gonna excite them and what’s gonna motivate them. So it’s cool to see their personalities develop and see the things that they lean toward.”

Considering he has had almost half a decade to build up his parenting skills after fathering two sons and a daughter, it’s no surprise that the singer has some serious wisdom to impart.
“I think, as parents, it’s our job to support those things and try and encourage them in those areas,” Lachey says of the role he is playing in his kids’ lives as they grow.
“What’s really cool is they’re all so different in their own ways, and you don’t really see that until they start to get older and get their personality,” he adds. “But they’re all so unique and different, and you love the different things about them in different ways.”

Hot Or Not? Nick Lachey Rates His Own Throwback Thursday Pictures | TODAY

Looking back at the 1990s, it’s obvious some fashion trends have changed (for the better). Nick Lachey, a guest co-host on The Take, tells TODAY he did not make all of his wardrobe decisions during his days in chart-topping boy band 98 Degrees. Now he revisits the era to rate his ’90s outfits as “hot” (literally, in one case) or “not.”
