Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo are engaged! The couple confirmed the engagement late last week and it really comes as no surprise. They’ve been together since 2006, right after Nick split from his ex-wife, Jessica Simpson. I actually thought they were engaged already…. oops!
It hasn’t been a perfectly peachy four years for Nick and Vanessa though. The two split in August of 2009 but managed to work things out and confirmed their reunion in October of the same year. Oh yes, and let’s not forget the scandalous trip these two took to Mexico, when they were walking around poolside stark naked and even got caught having sex in the pool. Too bad they didn’t notice the paparazzi lingering around…
But I digress.
“We’re excited and incredibly happy about our engagement and we look forward to a wonderful future together,” they happy couple said in a recent statement.
And I’m hearing that the ring Nick gave Vanessa is nothing to complain about. The Bader & Garrin platinum diamond ring has been estimated to be worth $125,000. Not bad Nick, not bad at all.
After announcing their engagement, the too then took off to Mexico this past weekend (they really seem to like it over there) to celebrate their joint birthdays. The 37-year-old former boy bander and 30-year-old television host and former Miss Teen USA were also joined on their getaway with a few friends.
Congrats Nick and Vanessa! We wish you both all the best in your upcoming nuptials!
