Jessica Simpson’s ex-husband Nick Lachey has gushed about how in love he is with girlfriend Vanessa Minnillo.

In an interview with OK! Magazine, he called her the “most special person I’ve ever known” and said: “She’s feminine and beautiful and sexy and she’s also probably the most powerful person I’ve ever had the opportunity to know… She and I are very much alike, two fiery people.”

The singer and TV presenter has been with Minnillo, who formerly hosted MTV’s Total Request Live, for four years now.

But Lachey admitted he hasn’t yet popped the question and said: “I’m sure at some point I will get engaged, but not even I know when that moment will be.”

He also didn’t rule out appearing in a reality show based on his relationship with Minnillo, as he did with ex-wife Jessica Simpson in the reality series Newlyweds.

He said: 'There’s nothing in the works right now. I think it would pose a unique set of challenges. I guess the positive is that I’m actually familiar with those challenges. The negative would be I’m also familiar with those challenges.

“It’s hard to say never to anything. You never know.”
