Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo Engaged
Looks like Jessica Simpson will be crying herself to sleep. Again.
The singer’s ex husband, Nick Lachey, 37, has finally popped the question to girlfriend Vanessa Minnillo, 30, after about 4 years of serious dating, minus a brief split last summer.
"We're excited and incredibly happy about our engagement and we look forward to a wonderful future together," the couple released in a statement.
The pair started dating in 2006 after Lachey’s very public divorce from Jessica Simpson, 30. Minnillo, host of True Beauty, recently said in an interview that their relationship was still going strong due to the open communication they have with each other.
"You have to talk through everything," she 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 than you're only hurting yourself."
Wow. How mature and so not “Jessica-like.” Looks like Lachey’s new wife actually knows how to talk about more than her just dog and farting.
As for doing another reality show like the one that put Simpson and Lachey on the map in the first place, MTV's Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica, Minnillo says it’s not going to happen. Lachey’s got it right when he says that Minnillo is "a very smart girl. She's far smarter than I!"
So how is the couple planning to celebrate the engagement? No one knows yet but one thing’s for sure, they definitely have a lot to celebrate: the couple also shares the same November 9th, birthday.
Now it that’s not fate I don’t know what is.
