Pregnant Vanessa Lachey showed off her baby bump on the December/January cover of American Baby magazine and shared how she is getting ready for baby No. 2. She and her husband, Nick Lachey, are parents to 2-year-old Camden and they are expecting a baby girl. Lachey opened up about the good and the bad about social media, as well as how she became confident in her skills as a mom.
"With social media, people share mostly their best moments. Don't feel like you're not doing enough when you see a mom posting about making applesauce after you bought it," she told American Baby. "It's fine! Just for raising a little human being you should be commended."
She revealed that bonding didn't happen for her after she saw the baby. "While pregnant with my son, Camden, I felt guilty because everyone told me about this love I'd feel, and I wasn't there yet. I remember asking Nick, 'Is there something wrong with me? I've wanted this my whole life, and I'm forcing myself to have those feelings.' For me, the love really flowed when I found out the baby was a boy. That's when I could finally bond, once I knew 'it' was a 'him,'" she said.
Lachey said that she isn't worried about parenthood, because she knows her parenting instincts will kick in. "Once Camden was born, certain fears calmed down. I no longer thought, 'Will I be able to do this?' My instincts really did kick in. We stumble and make mistakes, too, but that's what learning is. That's the beauty of it," she said.
