Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo are engaged
Five years after he announced his split from Jessica Simpson, Nick Lachey is set to become a newlywed again: The singer, 36, popped the question to girlfriend Vanessa Minnillo, 29, on Thursday.
“We’re excited and incredibly happy about our engagement and we look forward to a wonderful future together," the couple said in a joint statement to CNN.
Lachey and Minnillo, who began dating in 2006 and briefly split in 2009, were near a California beach on November 4 when he presented the former MTV host with a Bader & Garrin Asscher-cut diamond with baguettes, reports People.
Later that day, Lachey confirmed their good news via Twitter.
"Hey all. If anyone's heard the rumors of my engagement, they are absolutely true! Vanessa and I couldn't be happier," he wrote. "Thanks for all the love."

A cheeseburger is a hamburger topped with cheese. Traditionally, the slice of cheese is placed on top of the meat patty, but the burger can include many variations in structure, ingredients, and composition. The term itself is a portmanteau of the words "cheese" and "hamburger." The cheese is usually cubed, and then added to the cooking hamburger patty shortly before the patty is completely cooked which allows the cheese to melt. Cheeseburgers are often served with lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, mustard, mayonnaise, or ketchup.;

Who the fcuk CARES? They are not even F-list. A couple of nobodies, and no, this marriage wont last either.
been with him...gay
I thought he was gay. Guess my gaydar must be off. Or maybe ...
Dang! she's off the market. I was gonna ask her out.
there going to make pretty babys
I think this one will last. No interfering father in law. Her parents are in Florida. i can see Nick becoming a daddy like his brother Drew. Very happy that they found each other and love.
The Dude is so Ugly its unbelievable that he gets such nice a$$. Just look at the Big Nose and the Fat Jowls on him and don't tell me its his talent because there's not much of that going on either...
Did I forget to mention he's also short....
It's harsh to say it, but they won't last!
Hey you all a big congrats on the upcoming nupitals.. whoo hoo. Now, I got to go bag me a moose in celebration...
kill baby kill
I have to read in or order not to CARE.......sooooo who cares!!!!!!!....I more care about what u dumbmasses have to say !!!!!!
I always thought she was just a golddigger and publicity hound but at least he didn't jump right into it. Good for them.
Must be a slow news day. His fame comes from being Jessica's ex and her fame comes from her association to him. It's not like either of them have done anything special in the last couple years. I agree, who really cares?
" . . . he presented the former MTV host with a Bader & Garrin Asscher-cut diamond with baguettes."
Why would he give her french bread with a diamond in it?
I wish them all the happiness in the world! One thing they have going for them is they stay out of the lime light for the most part. Nick seems down to earth and so does Vanessa so I think they will make it.
Nick, quick! Does she know the difference between Fish & Chicken??(as in Chicken of the Sea).....
Best wishes to both of you, happiness Nick is yours!
Do your thang, Nick. She's a hottie. Much love to both
Is that all your pea-sized brain could think of? "Who cares?"
If I say yes, will you throw yourself off a bridge?
i'm happy yet sad they are getting engaged. I mean he moved on pretty quick after Jessica filed for divorce and poor Jessica hasn't found the right guy up until now, and let's hope he doesn't break her heart. She let a really good catch get away, its unfortunate. I sitll don't know why they got divorced anyway. I still watch them as a couple on NEWLEYWEDS and I love them togetheir, but I suppose Vanessa treats him well and she was there for him thru his toughest time. Wish them an eternal marriage.
Sad to say but I highly doubt their marriage will last. I give it about five years. Why do I say that? Because it's Hollywood. "Till death do us part, or until I get bored, or until I feel we grew apart".
As for Jessica Simpson, she is an air head, but has an outstanding voice, listen to her earlier stuff, she has the pipes, but her image gets in her way.
Jessica Simpson is a liberal stooge.
No, it won't last, but that is hollywood. Vanessa is pretty mucha no body0 no one knew of her until they started dating. Since hern stint at MTV, she really has not done a darn thing. Jessica may not be the brightest builb out there but she has a lucrative carrer between singing and her fashon endeavours. Call her what you may, but she makes her own money. Vanessa lives of what Nick has left since he himself has not done too much either.
Yeah I agree, Vanessa was jjust a TRL host and she was in NIcks video. SHes hella pretty though, I think prettier then Jess.
Who is hell are these people?
No really, you fail.
It won't last..
Who cares? Nick & Vanessa are B list actors, at best. Is Jessica Simpson even A list anymore?
Hollywood celebrities, I think not.
Yayy more publicity for these two lol, but I forgot, who is Nick Lachey & Vanessa Millano?
Hey study the bible and become a true Christian!! This goes for all of you
I am very happy for them! I wish them all the best and they deserve it 🙂
Congratulations! May your union last longer than the last one.
Congratulations. Definitely an upgrade from father obsessed Jessica.
Glad they are engaged. Hope this marriage is much better than the one he had with self-centered, talentless bimbo, Jessica Simpson.
Gee, tell us how you really feel! I hate when you hold back!
You can't have a 105 percent reduction if you are counting against 100 percent of a specific number. Just saying.
I will sleep like a baby tonight.
Why do they even bother? The vows of marriage mean as much to most celebrities as the lines they'd read in a play.
Just an excuse to have people fawn over them. The only celebrity marriages that should ever be reported are the ones lasting 15+ years.
Say, Eddie King likes "Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnilo are engaged"
What a cute couple.
Good for him, Vanessa is definitely an upgrade from the frumpy dumb blonde he wasted years of his life with.
Yes! Finally, it's about time!
Congrats to the happy couple. May your union be a happy one.
I can has cheezburger?
"we look forward to a wonderful future together".........i think what nick meant to say was "we look forward to a wonderful 3 years together before we split like 105% of all other hollywood marriages"
I'm sure he didn't mean THAT at all. Nick was devoted to Jessica and thought he would spend the rest of his life with her. He was devastated when she 'went Hollywood', got a big head and dumped him via email. I think Nick really is looking for a lifelong committment.
Maria, you say that like you know him. You don't know him. All you know is what the tabloids wrote and like a parrot, you are repeating it.
Maria, Jessica did not dump him via email. Nick explains in the Rolling Stones interview how Jessica told him that she wanted a divorce.
Did you ever stop to think
If you stopped to think about "who cares," you in part care about the whole idea. Just admit you were anxious enough over this article that you had to comment on it.
People say this is a tired argument, but in reality, so is clicking on the article and commenting on it. If you clicked on it, you obviously wanted to share your view with others on the topic. A "who cares" counts, so stop your denial, you arrogant fools.
Go troll somewhere else.
Isn't her name Vanessa milano? Lol
No, no it's not.
uh no its Minnillo not Milano dummy
Ashley, you might be thinking of Alyssa Milano (formerly of Who's the Boss)??
And so Jessica Simpson's weight balloon watch begins.
hahahahahha!!! So funny but so true! I know that in a weeks time her face will be on the front of all the magazines...Jessica Depressed and Sad....bahaha.
Nice move, Nick. Now if you can just get that Gumby haircut under control, you'll have it all.
