Vanessa and Nick Lachey 'Nesting' At Home

With Jessica Simpson ready to pop any second, it’s easy to lose track of ex-husband Nick Lachey’s baby on the way.

Only a year into their marriage, Vanessa and Nick Lachey are already expecting their first child.

“This whole process is going on in our first year of marriage, which everyone says is the hardest,” Vanessa told People Magazine.

Despite only being married for a short time, the couple has built a solid foundation after dating for five years prior to their nuptials.

“We were comfortable with all of the little things that would normally get into people’s way,” said Vanessa. “There is nothing unforgivable; he is my partner.”

The 31-year-old actress explained that the house chores are shared equally between her and her husband. Lately, she was thrilled to notice Nick has started to "nest" himself, refinishing a desk for the home and reading baby books.

“I told [Nick] the other day that the baby could hear him now and he corrected me!” said Vanessa. The former 98 degrees member is anxiously awaiting the day he can sing to the baby.

Hopefully, the kid likes pop music!

Meanwhile, Lachey's ex-wife Jessica Simpson is preparing for the arrival of her daughter in a slightly different way. Rather than carpentry or reading, Simpson is scouring her wardrobe for some leopard printed tops.

"I just woke up from a dream that I wore a leopard caftan in the hospital. Fabulous!!" Simpson tweeted today. "Now I need to find one!"
