A new January baby has arrived! Nick and Vanessa Lachey welcomed their second child together yesterday, reports People. The couple also have a 2-year-old son, Camden.
She's HERE!!!! Nick, Camden and I are SO excited to announce the birth of our sweet, beautiful baby girl, Brooklyn Elisabeth Lachey! She was born January 5th, 2015 at 5:17pm. She weighed in at 7 pounds 15 ounces, is 21 inches long and has already won over all of our hearts.
I have been dreaming of this moment for as long as I can remember, the day I was going to meet my little girl. A friend recently told me how magical today was going to be because it's the day I would meet my best friend. I can't even begin to tell you how it felt to hold her in my arms for the very first time. Mommy, Daddy and big brother Cam love you so much already, Brooklyn!
Thank you to everyone for your love and support, it means so much to our family.
The Lacheys were the cover stars of our June 2014 magazine. In the Parents interview, they revealed their eagerness to have another child.
"We definitely want more kids," they say in unison. Nick and his younger brother, 98 Degrees bandmate Drew, are two and a half years apart, which Nick thinks is perfect. "You don't want kids to have to share the same group of friends," he says. Counters Vanessa, "But you don't want them so far apart that they have nothing in common."
Nick nods in agreement. "Yes, they have to be close enough in age so they can still relate to each other," he says.
The couple got their wish -- a month after the interview, they shared a pregnancy announcement on their third wedding anniversary.
Congratulations to the Lachey family!
