Vanessa Lachey Reveals Holiday Plans with Husband Nick Lachey, Their Kids and Extended Family

By Jen Juneau  Georgia Slater

"It's go, go, go all year, and it's really nice that everything shuts down over the holidays," mother of three Vanessa Lachey tells PEOPLE

Where Christmas is concerned, it’s the more the merrier for Nick and Vanessa Lachey.
Vanessa tells PEOPLE that the couple and their three children — sons Phoenix Robert, 3, and Camden John, 7, plus daughter Brooklyn Elisabeth, 5 next month — are celebrating the holiday alongside a famous family member.
“[Nick’s brother] Drew [Lachey], [his wife] Lea and their kids are coming in on Christmas,” says the Top Chef Junior host, 39, who has partnered with children’s reading app Epic!.
“We’re excited to have them here because when we used to live next to each other in [Cincinnati], we always had Christmas together,” she adds of her 98 Degrees member brother-in-law and his family.
“And now that our kids are older, it’s hard to have Christmas away from home because they’re like, ‘Where are our presents?’ ” Vanessa says, noting, “And not that it’s about that at Christmas, but when you’re 2 and 4, that’s what Christmas morning is.”
While Vanessa and Nick, 46, have three children, Drew, 43, is a father of two. He and wife Lea, who tied the knot in 2000, share son Hudson Nicholas, 9½, and daughter Isabella Claire, 13.
“Since [Drew’s] kids are older, they’re going to have Christmas morning and then they’ll make it out here and we’ll all get to celebrate,” Vanessa says. “So I’m really excited to have family in town for that.”
“We always love doing family traditions during the holidays, but I think they become even more special because Phoenix was born on Christmas Eve,” she continues, adding of her anticipation of the low-key vibe surrounding the season, “I just love being home with the family. Honestly, it’s go, go, go all year, and it’s really nice that everything shuts down over the holidays.”
“So you actually can’t force yourself to make yourself over-busy,” Vanessa points out. “We’re really lucky this year that we get family.”

Speaking of Phoenix’s yuletide age milestone, this year marks the first that he will have had an actual birthday party to commemorate the occasion.
The mom of three goes on to explain that having his birthday on Christmas Eve has been a challenge when trying to plan a party for her youngest child — and that after his first year, the family simply wanted to celebrate their “miracle baby” together following his birth art 10 weeks premature after an umbilical-cord prolapse and subsequent hospitalization for respiratory syncytial virus (RSV).
“He said, ‘Am I having a birthday party?’ Because he’s seen his bigger brother and sister and he’s been to some [classmates’ parties],” Vanessa shares. “And I’m like, ‘Yes, Bubba, what do you want?’ He goes, ‘Pancakes and donuts with sprinkles!’ And I’m like, all right. He’s like, ‘And syrup.’ I said, ‘Okay buddy.’ “
“So we’re going to do a breakfast the Saturday before Christmas,” the proud mom adds.

Nick Lachey Shares His Parenthood Dos and Don'ts: PDA in Front of Kids 'Is Important'


It’s OK to kiss in front of your kids — and to drink wine before they go to bed! Nick Lachey shared his best parenting tips exclusively with Us Weekly.

“[PDA is] important,” the 98 Degrees member, 45, told Us on Wednesday, September 18, while promoting his Subway Feeding America partnership. “I think it’s to create that image and that perception of being in love still. It’s important for kids to see that affection. I think it all started there, and it needs to end there. So I’m a big believer in showing your kids what it means to be respectful and loving to each other. I think it’s a big part of a healthy upbringing.”

The Kentucky native, who shares Camden, 7, Brooklyn, 4, and Phoenix, 2, with his wifeVanessa Lachey, added, “Alone time is harder and harder to come by when you have three, but also equally important. Not in front of the kids, but equally important.”
When it comes to meltdowns, the Newlywed alum advises parents to “try no to” reveal too much of their emotions in front of their children.

“My dad was a very openly sensitive guy and not afraid to cry,” Nick explained to Us. “I always appreciated that. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with teaching your kids to be in touch with their emotions, but at the same time, you want to be Dad. Like, you’ve got to be in charge. As I tell my kids, ‘Daddy’s always right, and Daddy’s number one job is to protect you. So you have to always listen.’ Being sensitive but strong at the same time, I think, is a nice combination if you can pull it off.”

He and the former Miss Teen USA, 38, wed in 2011. Nick was formerly married to Jessica Simpson from 2002 to 2006.

Nick also gushed about his Subway partnership, telling Us, “So much produce gets thrown out every year because it doesn’t appear pretty, but it’s still perfectly good and good to use. People can go to, adopt an ugly vegetable, and for every dollar they pledge, it goes directly to feeding Americans. We will match that donation to try and raise funds and awareness for trying to get more fresh produce to people who need it.”

Nick Lachey and Subway encourage families to love those ugly vegetables

by Cristine Struble

Nick Lachey and Subway want vegetables, no matter their appearance, to be centerstage on every family’s plate and they are helping Feeding America do that.

Can you love an ugly vegetable? Nick Lachey and Subway think that beauty, great taste and good nutrition is in the eye of the beholder. When it comes to nutrition, appearance doesn’t matter. Whether it is gnarly carrot or a slightly misshapened tomato, those ugly vegetables are still good for you and your family.
Food waste continues to be a huge problem. Unfortunately, many people overlook or discard those ugly vegetables. When so many people cannot afford or have access to fresh fruits and vegetables, those ugly vegetables need their moment to shine.
Recently, Subway and Nick Lachey have partnered to support and raise awareness for Feeding America. Through the Ugly Veggie Rescue, anyone can adopt one of these misshapened veggies. Funds raised will benefit Feeding America.
According to Feeding America, millions of Americans do not have access to fresh fruits and vegetables. This nutrition gap impacts a huge cross section of the country. From creating healthy eating habits at a young age or supporting good nutrition throughout their lives, giving everyone the opportunity to have fresh, nutritious food is an attainable goal.
Nick Lachey, Subway
Subway has always been a leader in offering fresh, good for you, affordable food choices. Through this partnership with Feeding America, the goal is to make more people aware and hopefully spark a permanent change.
Through the Ugly Veggie Rescue, anyone can “adopt” one of these 13 ugly veggies. Each one has a name, like Ava the avocado, Clare the carrot and Tom the tomato. While these veggies might not be the picture perfect veggie from a magazine, they are pretty cute and they definitely have some personality.
To be clear, a donation doesn’t get you this particular vegetable. It is a way to support the cause. Even for just a $1, anyone can put their support behind Tom and his friends, more importantly put their support behind Feeding America and their purpose of helping bring food to those in need.
And, when people adopt one of these veggies, Subway will match that donation towards Feeding America. So, one person’s good deed sparks another good deed. Hopefully, it will spark a change in people’s perceptions, choices and actions.
As part of the Ugly Veggie Rescue initiative, FoodSided had the opportunity to chat with Nick Lachey. He shared some of his opinions about hunger in America, the Ugly Veggie Rescue program and some fun events in his future.
Below is a transcript of that interview.
Cristine Struble: One of the biggest myths about hunger in America is that it a homeless issue. With working parents often struggle with food security, how can people become more aware of the food security issue that faces many families?
Nick Lachey: Subway recently conducted a survey to understand exactly how people view hunger in America and how they want to help. Subway found that 91% of people would love to help combat food insecurity in America, but a majority of them feel like they don’t have enough time. Subway and Feeding America’s Ugly Veggie program is meant to give consumers a quick and easy way to make an impact. All you have to do is go to and “adopt” and Ugly Veggie of your own. With your adoption, you can make a donation as small as $1, which will be donated to Feeding America.
CS: It is believed that 72 billions of pounds of good food goes to waste each year, how can rescuing food help combat the hunger issue in the U.S.?
NL: Ugly Veggies get a bad rep for how they look. But when it comes down to it, these veggies taste just as good and are just as nutritious as their more attractive counterparts. To throw away perfectly good and healthy food when so many Americans -1 in 9 according to Feeding America- are facing food insecurity is ludicrous
CS: How are you and Subway using your platform to make it easy for families to make a difference via Feeding America?
NL: We want families to realize how easy it is to make a difference. We also want people to know they can make an impact in a way that’s fun and creative. With this program, we’re also asking people to question everyday habits- such as letting perfectly good, “ugly” produce go to waste, and evaluate where they can change their behavior and make a difference. This program is more than just donating money to Feeding America. We hope to raise awareness around the fact that billions of pounds of food go to waste every year.
CS: As a parent, how do you educate your children and family about smart food choices, from eating well to preventing food waste?
NL: I found that the easiest way to teach your kids most anything is by example. So, it’s helpful when kids see their parents leading a healthy, nutritious lifestyle and eating healthy vegetables, and kids often in turn, will mirror that and it’s important to start those lessons early.
CS: When you’re on tour, how do you make smart eating choices for you and your family?
NL: Eating healthy on tour is always a challenge because you’re usually ordering out. It’s always a priority of mine to eat healthy no matter where I am. I’m a huge believer in the importance of healthy eating and a healthy lifestyle, not just for me but for my family. I’ve gotten to a point where I have places that I know are going to give me a healthy meal
CS: In addition to your partnership with Subway, what’s next for you?
NL: I’m excited about a new show, called America’s Most Musical Family that I’m hosting for Nickelodeon, which premiers November 1st, and I’m still preforming with 98 Degrees. We have a handful of shows still between now and the end of the year and other shows already lined up for next year. So I’m excited to be hopefully in a city near you soon.
FoodSided would like to thank Nick Lachey for speaking with us and Subway for facilitating this interview.
Are you ready to make a difference? An ugly veggie is waiting for your support. More importantly, Feeding America is ready to make a difference in many people’s lives. Whether you give a money or make smarter food waste choices, everyone is connected in this food issues. Isn’t it time to start making a difference?

Niick Lachey reveals how he and his brother, Drew, leaned on each other at height of boy band fame

By Jessica Napoli

Nick Lachey is no stranger to the limelight.
He's been singing and dancing since the mid-90s -- along with his brother Drew Lachey -- in the boy band 98 Degrees. But before he started selling out concerts, the 45-year-old musician and TV personality was just a normal kid born in Kentucky and raised in Ohio.
Luckily, Nick and Drew had each other to lean on throughout all the ups and downs in Hollywood.
"You know, we're super close so it was awesome to be able to share all these experiences with somebody who is your best friend," Nick told Fox News last week in a phone call. "For us, it was super meaningful."
Nick, who is promoting his Subway Feeding America partnership to bring awareness to kids who are battling hunger across the United States, added: "We had each other's back for sure" during the height of their fame.
He admitted the hardest part about growing up on a stage in front of people was the loss of privacy but the positives about being able to "live your dream" outweighed the negative aspects of fame. "I'm always going to try to just be me and be natural and always be kind," he added.
Nick now shares son Camden, 7, daughter Brooklyn, 4, and son Phoenix, 2, with his wife, Vanessa Lachey, and even though his kids are growing up in a more privileged way than he did, he makes sure to keep them grounded.

"As they get older I think community service is a really important thing and that [having] perspective is huge," Nick explained. "So [my kids] need to know that they're very lucky and very blessed. It's important [to us] that they understand not everyone has these opportunities and has the life that they do.
And what if Nick's kids approach him and his wife about pursuing a career in music? The singer confessed he can't be a "hypocrite."
"But who knows... I think as a parent the best you can do is support whatever their interests are... whatever that it is that excites them," he said, "It is kind of cool when you see [your child] get excited [about a career] and you see [your child] into the same kinds of things that you are."
Nick would offer plenty of advice though -- "I kind of know the pitfalls of business."
"You [can] try and shield your kids from whatever pain you can and whatever problems," he continued, but ultimately, "I absolutely would support it."

Nick Lachey Says His Son Camden, 7, Loves Singing but 'Unfortunately, Has His Dad's Dance Moves'

By Hanna Flanagan

"You never want to force your kids to do what you do, but it's nice when they naturally gravitate to the same passions that you have," says Nick Lachey

Does Nick Lachey‘s son have boy-band potential?
The 98 Degrees singer, 45, brought his oldest child, Camden John, on stage during a concert for his seventh birthday on Sept. 12 — and he soaked up the spotlight.
“After he heard the crowd cheering for us in the dressing room, he said, ‘Can we do that again? That was really fun,’ ” Lachey, who has teamed up with Subway and Feeding America to fight food insecurity with the Ugly Veggies campaign, tells PEOPLE. “I think he got a little bit of the stage bug, if you will.”
While Lachey — who also shares son Phoenix Robert, 2½, and daughter Brooklyn Elisabeth, 4½, with wife Vanessa — won’t push his kids to pursue one hobby over another, he admits that Camden is already a passionate performer.
“Cam, especially, really loves music and singing,” the Feeding America partner says. “You never want to force your kids to do what you do, but it’s nice when they naturally gravitate to the same passions that you have.
Lachey adds with a laugh, “[Camden], unfortunately, has his dad’s dance moves, so I’m not sure dancing is in his future.”
The “Because of You” artist posted a video of the sweet moment in which he and brother Drew Lachey sang “Happy Birthday” at the Washington State Fair in Puyallup, Washington, where 98 Degrees performed alongside Boyz II Men.

“A special moment for all of us,” he captioned the Instagram clip. “Thank you to everyone who helped make Camden’s 7th birthday one he will never forget. Happy birthday kid!! 🎈”
2019 marks the first year all three of the Lachey children are enrolled in school. And their mom had a plan.
“I’m going to get their bags packed the night before. I’m going to get all of their essentials for school and the next size up, so when they size out of that they’re ready to go,” Vanessa, 38, told PEOPLE last month. “I’m going to have their lunches packed the night before, we’re going to have gas in the car, we’re going to be ready.”
Why? “So when you wake up, you can just be present and ask them if they’re excited about school, if they’re ready for their day,” explained the Top Chef Junior host. “Just enjoy the moments that go by way too fast.”
And Camden, who just started first grade, “is my little sports guy,” Vanessa shared. “You name it, he does it. He wants to try everything. He’s so active. He does not stop.”
From now through Oct. 18, you can visit and “adopt” an oddly shaped — yet nutritious — “ugly” veggie for as little as $1 to help provide fresh produce to families in need.
