Though Drew Lachey and his brother Nick Lachey are currently back on the road together as part of 98 Degrees, don't expect pearls of fatherly wisdom to be shared.
"I don't give any advice. That's rule number one," Drew, a father of of two, told Parade.com. "You don't tell anyone how to raise their kids." He adds that he's not worried about his brother, who is expecting his first child with wife Vanessa Minnillo. "He's going to love that baby so much, everything is going to be fine," Drew adds. "I don't have to give him any advice. He knows how to hold it, love it, and hug it. That's basically all you have to do. Everything else will work itself out."
As for reuniting as a band, the foursome (which also includes Justin Jeffre and Jeff Timmons), haven't missed a step. "Not a whole lot has changed," he says. "Everyone kind of falls into the same roles. It's good."
Drew also talked about coming back for another season of Dancing with the Stars after winning his season in 2006.
Read on for what he thinks about his fellow All-Stars, the secret weapon he has up his sleeve, and why athletes seem to win a lion's share of the trophies:
On his competition.
"Well, there are six champions and a lot of runner-ups. I'm glad I'm able to come back and prove to myself and everybody else that yes, the dancing and the talent have improved every season but season two can still hang! It's going to be a lot of fun and I look forward to it. I think it will be looser at first until week one. Until they go, 'oh snap! They brought it. I better step up my game!' Once that happens, the gloves will come off and people will be competitive. Until that happens it'll be pretty jovial and fun. We'll see."
What he's going to do differently.
"For the most part I left it out there. There are a couple things I would have done differently like different costumes, different choreography. But I don't do anything halfway and this season isn't any different."I've seen the seasons go by and I know what to expect a little bit more. In season 2, we were stil figuring out what the show was. They had a little costume room and now they like have a sweat shop. It takes up a whole floor. The show has expanded, the cast has expanded. Everything's gotten bigger and better and shinier with more rhinestones. There's going to be a learning curve but I feel confident with the knowledge from doing the show."
On having new moves.
"There are certain things I can do physically that we didn't quite take advantage of [on season two]. Not necessarily tricks but I'm more athletic than we took advantage of. Obviously the choreography is stepped up a lot. There are more dances. At that time, my wife was about to have a baby so I was all over the place. So it will be good to just be able to be t here and focus on what I have to do."
On having Dancing on his mind 24/7.
"It's weird, I listen to music in general and I go, 'wow, that would make a really good salsa, or a really good Cha Cha.' And I'm like, 'what is wrong with you! stop thinking in those terms!' Music is a huge part of my life so every song that I listen to, to have that be one of the first things, you want to get it out of your brain."
On being nervous.
"I'm nervous about all of it! Who wouldn't be nervous going in front of 20 million people doing something you're not 100% comfortable doing. Yes, I've done it before and won it but that doesn't discount the fact that you have 12 other people who are very good that trying to do the same thing."
Performers vs. Athletes.
"There's nothing [of a rivalry] that is blatantly out there. A lot of it comes down to [athletes] being able to take coaching, they're able to listen, they're 100% focused on the goal. While performers, by trade, we're a little more creative and out there. So athletes have that advantage. There is some serious competition out there."
