Nick Lachey and wife Vanessa expecting first child

Baby is set to make three for Nick Lachey and his wife Vanessa, as Nick's confirmed they're expecting their first child.

The 38-year-old singer/TV personality revealed the joyous news while guest co-hosting on "Live! With Kelly" Monday.

Vanessa, who wed Nick in July 2011, was on "Live!" back in January, and "later that night she started to feel a little different, not quite herself," Nick recalled.

"So she went to the store, got a pregnancy test and it came back positive," the excited dad-to-be said. "We are havin’ a baby!"

Lachey and his wife have said that they planned on becoming parents one day, and the former boy band member said that he's cherishing this moment.

"I’ve had the chance to do a lot of great things in my career and in my life, but this is the one thing, that more than any other, I’ve looked forward to," he said. "So the fact that it’s actually here and we’re going through all these experiences - it’s overwhelming."

The couple are expecting their little one to arrive in the late summer or early fall.

And while Nick celebrates being able to share his baby news, Snooki is staying mum on her own pregnancy rumors.

People magazine reports that the 24-year-old reality star, who's allegedly pregnant, is also engaged to her boyfriend and the rumored father of her maybe-baby, Jionni.

Sources tell the magazine that the couple are expecting their first child later this year. Snooki's rep tells CNN, "Unfortunately, we have no comment."

    Jessica needs to have her baby taken away? Taken away because you don't like her? GET A GRIP. Just because you don't like her doesn't mean she'll be a terrible parent who deserves to have her child taken away. You negative responders are just full of hate. Why can't everyone just be nice? OH, I know why, because these comment boards breed TRASH! Figured it out.

    Snooki is still human just like you. I'm sure your not perfect either. I'm 18 and have 3 kids and jessica likes ppl to think of her as a dumb blonde so I agree that she needs her baby taken.

    Snooki is adorable, I hope she is pregnant!!! As far as jessica goes I hope she gets her baby taken away. She's definitely played the dumb blonde act too long and seriously needs 24 hour supervision when the baby arrives. She is all about attention and its pathetic. As

      You can't tell people to get a life when you have none yourself... Mr. "I don't care about this article but I commented anyway."

    Really RESPECT her that she and Nick have been together for years, and she never got knocked up to trap him as so many females do. She waited till after they were married, what a decent, good woman she is, Nick is lucky he has her! Congrats to them, whata beautiful baby that will be.

    Sounds like squawks is jealous. Personally jessica simpson is ugly and deserves nothing. I hope she stays fat after her demon spawn is born. Serves her right.

    I'm very happy for Vanessa and Nick. These two make a great couple and baby makes a perfect family.

    Jessica Simpson was a lousy wife and never deserved a good guy like Nick . I think she got pregnant on purpose to beat Lachey to it since she couldnt beat him to the altar but she just took the next available guy who would put up with her diva ways. it would serve her right to stay fat after she has the baby – ha !

      Someone gave birth to YOU, was that a mistake? Did they say that about YOU? Bet you were no piece of cake as a kid, bet you're even worse as an adult!

  23. ugh

    Leave it to CNN to add at the bottom of the article about Snooki. Yes, I know it's related, but the focus should be on Nick and Vanessa.

    Congrats to them!
