The couple, who began dating in 2006, gushed about the news in the following statement: “We’re excited and incredibly happy about our engagement and we look forward to a wonderful future together.”
Nick Lachey has had a run of better luck in the love department compared to his ex-wife Jessica Simpson, even though his relationship with Vanessa Minnillo has not always been the smoothest.
The couple, who also double as TV personalities (he is the host of Sing-Off and she is the host of True Beauty), called it quits for a short period in 2009. Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo rekindled their love after the cooling-off period, however, and now have a wedding to plan.
Recently, Minnillo opened up to Parade about her romance with Nick Lachey and the importance of communication in a healthy relationship.
“You have to talk through everything,” Minnillo said. “We talk daily about things that upset us. It’s about having a sounding board because if you hold in all your thoughts, dreams, anger and anxiety then you’re only hurting yourself.”
Just because Lachey put a ring on it, don’t look for a reality show featuring the couple anytime soon. There won’t be any repeats similar to Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson’s MTV reality show, Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica.
Sounds like Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo will have one more thing to celebrate other than their shared November 9 birthdays.
Congrats to the happy couple!
