What is it with the name Camden? First Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler named their new baby Camden Jack and now Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo gave their newborn the same name.

"We are incredibly proud to announce the birth of our beautiful baby boy, Camden John Lachey. Born today at 6:54 pm. He came into this world at 8lbs 9oz and 21 inches. Love has truly been redefined for both of us," Lachey and Minnillo said late Wednesday.

The pair married in a romantic ceremony in July 2011 on Necker Island. It's the first marriage for Minnillo, but Lachey was famously married to another new parent — Jessica Simpson — from 2002 to 2005. They both had babies on the brain right away.

"We want a family and I think we probably want to start sooner than later obviously," he told OK! Magazine before their wedding. Her pregnancy was announced just a few months later.

Minnillo said she approached pregnancy with a healthy yet indulgent attitude.

"I think it's important to let yourself indulge but what I eat, what I put into my body, goes directly to my baby," she told Parade in the spring. "It makes you think, 'Do I really want to get that Snickers bar snack or do I want to get a bowl of fruit?' So then I go for the fruit and the antioxidants."

"But of course, I'm human, and after we went out to dinner last night, I had a bowl of ice cream," she added. "After the baby is born, I still want to have me. I don't want to start at ground zero to try and get back to that."

Just take some time to enjoy your new son, Vanessa! The gym will still be there when he's older.
