Vanessa Lachey (formerly Minnillo) and her husband Nick Lachey are expecting a baby, Nick himself confirmed on Live! With Kelly, which he co-hosted Monday.

The female Lachey is due late summer or early fall.

She "started to feel a little different, not herself," Nick said. "So she went to the store, got a pregnancy test, and it came back positive. So we are having a baby!"

The dad-to-be added: "I've had a chance to do a lot of great things in my career and my life but this is the one thing that, more than any other, I look forward to."

"The fact that it's actually here, it's overwhelming."

And while the couple doesn't yet know the sex of the baby, they will – if Nick has anything to do with it. "We definitely want to know," Lachey told Ripa.

"I can't take the knowledge that someone out there knows, but I don't know. It's like watching a sports game on TiVo," mused the singer, 38.

This will be the first child for Nick and Vanessa, who got married in July 2011, and have been together for more than five years. Congratulations!

Look, Nick Lachey knows he's 37. He knows the pressure is on. And he's giving it to new wife Vanessa Minnillo as often as possible.

So far, though, the unprotected sex is yet to lead to a child.

"Trust me, it would make me very happy," Lachey told E! News of procreating. "Family is very important. It's very important to us, and I'm sure that will be around the corner."

Hammering home the point that she's getting hammered every night, Minnilo updated her Twitter page soon after getting married on July 15 to include "wifey by night" and "wannabe mommy all the time."

How is married life treating the couple? Just dandy, says Lachey:

"We're still in the honeymoon period. Not much changed, which, for me, is a good thing. We've been together five years. We were very comfortable in our relationship before the marriage."

Longtime lovebirds Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo have officially tied the knot. Congratulations to the couple on their wedding, which took place today!

The pair married on a tropical island in front of 35 friends and family.

"For us, this is just a stepping stone to do what we ultimately want and that's to start a family together," Minnillo said after the surprise affair.

Birthday Boy and Girl

She and Nick started dating in 2006 and became engaged last November, but no one knew when their wedding would be. Not even the guests!

"Nobody knew where they were going," Minnillo said. "Our wedding invitations were in the form of a plane ticket," Lachey added of the secret. "We told them they were going away and the attire was 'island chic.' It was all very vague."

Lachey and Minnillo's destination wedding will be televised on a TLC's special called Nick & Vanessa's Dream Wedding, premiering July 30.

It was the first marriage for Minnillo; Lachey was previously and famously married to Jessica Simpson, who he separated from in 2006.

Nice to hear some happy celebrity news in the wake of the surprising Jennifer Lopez-Marc Anthony split reported hours ago. Congrats again!

You know what they say: if your first televised wedding doesn't go well, try, try again.

TLC has announced plans to air a special dedicated to the nuptials of Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo. It will include footage from their joint wedding shower, the latter's search for a gown and, of course, end with the actual ceremony.

Lachey allowed reality TV cameras into his life in a similar manner for his wedding to Jessica Simpson. That union ended in divorce after four years.

A midget impersonated Nick Lachey at his fiancee's bachelorette party. Why couldn't that be televised?!?

"We're lucky to have such passionate and loving fans, and we though partnering with TLC on this special would be the best way to share the exciting journey we're on with all the people that support us and our relationship," the couple said, shockingly, in a joint statement.

We had no clue the pair had any fans.

Will you tune in for the nuptials?

Vanessa Minnillo and her friends were serenaded by a Nick Lachey impersonator at her bachelorette party this weekend. A Nick Lachey impersonator.

The faux Nick not only lacked Lachey's silky smooth vocals, he also lacked in height. What we're driving at is that the guy was also a little person.

Anyway, it sounds like she had a kick-ass time ...

V-Minn

"I'm about to get a ball and chain ... but not yet and tonight's my bachelorette party!" the hottie screamed into the DJ's microphone at LAVO.

The future bride was then serenaded by the Nick impersonator who proceeded to tear off his shirt and perform renditions of 98 Degrees' hits.

But Minnillo and her guests' weekend was just getting started. The group partied poolside while she donned a sash and crown in Las Vegas.

Fortunately (for them), they didn't run into Heidi Montag.

Although the pair haven't announced their wedding date, it could be going down pretty soon. The bachelorette party's over. Just saying.

Vanessa Minnillo and Nick Lachey are getting married. That's a given.

The only question is when ... and the answer may be very, very soon!

Birthday Boy and Girl

On The Rachael Ray Show Wednesday, Nick revealed his holiday plans with his fiance and hinted that the pair just might tie the knot.

Might the holidays be extra joyous for Nick and 'Nessa?

"We're going to be in Cincinnati with family, and hopefully having a white Christmas there. We're going to be in Tuscany for New Year's," he said.

"Who knows, we may be married in Tuscany, too! I just basically told her, I said, 'Tell me when and where to be and what to wear, I'll be there.'"

If that happens, look for Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson to wed January 2.

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:

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!
