Nick Lachey plans to be hands on at the birth of his first child. However don’t ask him to get too close. The 38-year-old singer – who announced his wife Vanessa Lachey was expecting on Live! With Kelly Monday morning – returned for a second day of co-hosting and talked about his labor plan.
He said, “I’ve been told – because that’s what happens now, I’m told things – that it’s going to be a waist-up situation, if you know what I mean. I’m gonna be there, I’m gonna be supportively there, holding hands, and coaching, breathing, all that good stuff. But apparently I won’t be down below, seeing what’s happening. I’ll be up above, helping.”
He added, “My work there is done! I was successful there. So we’ll keep it waist-up.”
Nick has seen a live birth before. Two years ago he filmed a friend’s child being born.
I asked him, ‘How do you want me to handle this, do you want me to get in there and get the detail?’ And he said, ‘Yeah.’ We all got very close that day. I didn’t expect it to be what it was, but it was a really incredible, awesome moment.”
