No wedding date has been set for Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo. But the former has a plan for when discussions turn to this recently-engaged couple's nuptials.

"I want it to be about her," Lachey told People. "Any guy will tell you that it's probably more about the bride than the groom. It's just about celebrating your love for each other."

Totally Smitten

And Lachey certainly has a lot of love for Minnillo. "She's my soulmate in every way," he said, adding:

Divorce is a painful process for couples, so there are going to be mixed emotions if a former spouse gets re-married. Just the same, Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson appear nothing but happy for each other.

Much as the tabloids wish he'd give a better sound bite, Nick wishes nothing but the best for Jess, who got engaged to Eric Johnson over the weekend.

"I will say the same thing I always say: I wish her the very best," said Lachey, who just got engaged to Vanessa Minnillo himself after years of dating.

Asked how she felt about Lachey's engagement, Simpson is equally mature, telling Ryan Seacrest "Our relationship was over a really long time ago, and it would be nice if everyone could move on and celebrate the love between him and Vanessa."

Like Jessica, Nick says he's "basking in the glow" of the news and "enjoying that. I'm sure we'll get on the other planning shortly. We are just enjoying this experience." 

Simpson and Lachey famously wed in 2002 and infamously split in 2005. Even then, it wasn't bitter. "This is the mutual decision of two people with an enormous amount of respect and admiration for each other," they said in a statement.

Here's wishing couples the best. Which do you think will last longer?

Nearly five years after Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey divorced, both stars got engaged this month and are totally ready for their second marriages.

Nick and Vanessa Minnillo announced their news November 1. Then, this Sunday, we learned that Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson will wed as well.

The way marriages go nowadays, particularly in Hollywood, you can't help but wonder if either will make it. Who do you think stands the better chance?

Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson are getting hitched. To other people.

As for the obligatory rumor that Jessica got engaged just to "keep up" with Nick (you know someone will report this), a source says Johnson "had been planning the engagement for awhile and the date was very special to them."

Bottom line: We wish both couples the best and hope they both last forever. But it's far from a given. Which union do you think will last longer?

How often do you see two people get engaged, and then celebrate their birthday on the same day, all within one week?

The answer: not often. But that's the exact case with Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo today, as the former turns 37 and his new bride-to-be hits the age of 30. We're guessing this couple can think of plenty of ways to celebrate the occasions on their own (if you know what we mean!!!)...

... so we'll just wish Nick and Vanessa the happiest of birthdays, encourage readers to do the same and honor them with this photo montage. Have a great day, forthcoming newlyweds!

Lachey rose to fame thanks to his first marriage, as he and Jessica Simpson chronicled their relationship in the kind of reality show that wasn't common place back in the day. They got divorced soon after it went off the air.

Boy bander Nick Lachey debuted a new cropped haircut at the 9th Annual Chrysalis Butterfly Ball in the Brentwood section of L.A. Friday. His reason for the change?

"I just wanted a change," the 36-year-old said. "I used to wear it short, and I have been in this business so long. and I got sick of it. I just decided to shave it."

Well, that settles that. But, the ex- Mr. Jessica Simpson added:

"It's slowly growing back!"

Funny how that works. But do you like it as is or as was? Vote!

Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo are reunited and it feels so good.

"I am happy in a relationship," he said Thursday on Good Day Philadelphia. "I was single for a minute there, and then we've kind of patched things up."

"She's a very smart girl," he gushed. "She's far smarter than I."

You probably never heard him say that about Jessica Simpson.

Hottest couple ever? Nick and Vanessa are vying for that title.

After nearly three years of dating, Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo amicably split in June but remained "good friends." That phase was short-lived.

By late August, they were spotted kissing, making out and dancing together at Los Angeles bar Dime. The PDA parade only got better from there.

Lachey said soon after that rumored hookup that "We're trying to figure things out. I don't pretend to know what the future holds for us, but everything's good now. Vanessa's a good girl, and I care about her a lot."

We're kidding, of course. Jessica is not really suicidal.

Just the same, after reading this article, Papa Joe Simpson might want to take away her belts and shoelaces just to be extra cautious. It could get ugly.

Jessica and Her Bitch

If being needy and clingy and having a coyote devour her dog weren't bad enough, Jessica Simpson's ex-husband is back together with his ex-girlfriend.

Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo have been taking their PDA parade nationwide lately, hooking up in L.A., NYC and for the last three nights, Las Vegas!

On Saturday night, the two checked out singer Matt Goss' new show at the Palms Casino Resort, where Kim Kardashian even sang and danced on stage.

Nick and 'Nessa: Hottest couple ever? Quite possibly?

Not about to call it an early night, Nick and Vanessa were later seen partying and dancing until the wee hours with Wilmer Valderrama at nightclub LAX.

On Sunday, they watched the New York Giants battle with the Dallas Cowboys (they of Jessica's other ex Tony Romo) at First Food & Bar in the Palazzo.

They obviously liked First Food & Bar. They returned last night to watch Monday Night Football and dine on Grandma's Pizza and ice cream sandwiches.

Wow, back-to-back nights at a sports bar? Vanessa Minnillo sounds like the coolest, most laid-back chick ever. Quite a contrast from pathetic Jessica.

There have been rumors, but now we have proof.

Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo have rekindled their love! Cue the obligatory OK! Magazine cover featuring Jessica Simpson and her "revenge diet!"

The pair were spotted at McFadden's Restaurant and Saloon in New York City over the weekend. Here's a very cute picture of the rekindled couple ...

Looks like Nick and 'Nessa are giving it another go.

"They seemed very laid back and were very friendly to the staff and fellow patrons," an eyewitness said, noting that the two called it an early night.

Vanessa and Nick, who split in June, clearly couldn't keep away from each other for long. They have been spotted in NYC and LA in recent weeks.

Here's hoping these two stay together and happy!

If there was any doubt that Vanessa Minnillo and Nick Lachey, who called it quits back in June, are now back together, well, this would sort of be it!

Following a make-out session last week, the sexy pair are making no attempts to hide their rekindled romance, according to the ever-reliable OK!.

Heck, earlier this afternoon, as a matter of fact, Nick and Vanessa grabbed lunch - and each other! - at the N.Y. City comfort food favorite Duke’s.

Witnesses say the couple were holding hands over the table as they ate and chatted. “They’re definitely back on,” one witness said of their behavior.

Last weekend, the former husband of Jessica Simpson and former MTV VJ made news by locking lips at a club. It's so back on, it's not even funny.

It's only a matter of time until we see Part II of this classic pool display ...

Vanessa Mannillo climbs atop Nick Lachey. In the pool. Hot.
