After a brief "time off" Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo have been spotted together around the country. The most recent sighting, as these Life & Style exclusive photos show, was a lunch date on Sept. 13 in Covington, Ky., near Nick's hometown of Cincinnati.
"They sat outside on the patio at First Watch restaurant. When they first walked in, they were holding hands and seemed very much like a couple," an eyewitness tells Life & Style. "I didn't know until after the lunch that they were broken up! It certainly didn't look like it."
"They started acting like an old married couple," adds the eyewitness. "They didn't kiss in public, but their body language was definitely saying more than just friends."
Nick and Vanessa have recently been out and about since their reported split in June behaving very much like a couple everywhere from LA to NY to Nick's home turf!
