Their wedding day is quickly approaching, but in addition to their upcoming nuptials, Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo also have something else on their minds — babies!
“We definitely want to do [it] together and do it sooner rather than later,” Nick tells People. “I’ll be 38 this year, so it’s one of those things that I’m certainly behind the eight-ball on.
“Not that getting married was the means to an end to have kids,” the former boy bander continues, “but it certainly was the next step in the process that leads us to ultimately having a great family together.”
The date of their wedding is being kept secret, but Lachey and Minnillo are letting TLC cameras film the memorable occasion for a special, despite Nick’s declaration that he’d never have his life filmed for a reality show again.
This is very different than doing a reality series,” says Lachey. “It’s a one-off special. This is a different process. There’s a beginning and there’s an end, and it’s over.”
And though he’s already had a big, extravagant wedding, Nick says that he wants to make sure that Vanessa is able to have the day she’s always dreamed of.
“It’s important to me — and remains important to me — that this is her day, and I want her to experience everything that being bride is and can be. And so I want this to be everything she dreamt it would be and more and I’ve tried to make that happen for her and for us.”
