It was certainly a good day for his ego.
But it remains to be seen what Nick Lachey's wife Vanessa will make of him getting handcuffed by Sophia Bush at the end of an interview in which she branded him 'the best kisser' on Monday.
Luckily it was all in good fun, as the 31-year-old was demonstrating the skills she has learned playing a detective in hit show Chicago PD after a chummy discussion on VH1's Big Morning Buzz TV.

And when she praised the former 98 Degree's singer's lip-locking skills, she was actually referring to his on-screen prowess compared to the other members of the cast of her hit show One Tree Hill.
Before she came on the boy band favourite talked about her previous work before he added, 'but I will always remember her for this.'
It then cut to the pair in a passionate embrace, which occurred when her character Brooke Davis managed to land Nick, who took on the daunting role of playing himself, as a wedding date in season six.
And when the 40-year-old shamelessly asked if her was the best kisser she ever worked with on the show she replied, 'I mean, look at those lips. Obviously.'
Sophia was his first every guest as he took over the reins of the popular VH1 chat showm, and he took to the task like a duck to water, discussing how she sleeps with a gun near her bed and her probing her on her love of hosting music gigs at her home.
And when their short chat came to an end he told her he wanted to 'test her handcuffing prowess,' which she is now an expert in since she started playing Detective Erin Lindsay in NBC drama series Chicago PD, which debuted in January.
She joked, 'I really like your wife. Is this OK?'
After he riposted: 'You can come over with handcuffs anytime, we both will welcome you,' she cuffed him like a professional in quick time.
