LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Nick Lachey will have his wedding televised for the second time.
TLC announced on Tuesday that the network would air “Nick & Vanessa’s Dream Wedding,” featuring his nuptials to sometime TV host and actress, Vanessa Mininllo. Nick previously married his first wife, Jessica Simpson, on MTV in a special that sparked “Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica,” in 2002.
“We’re lucky to have such passionate and loving fans, and we thought partnering with TLC on this special would be the best way to share the exciting journey we’re on with all the people that support us and our relationship,” Nick and Vanessa said in a joint statement.
The special has yet to receive an airdate, but it will hit the airwaves within weeks of the couple saying “I do.”
In addition to the actual wedding, the special will feature footage from the pair’s joint wedding shower, and Vanessa’s wedding dress search.
“Nick and Vanessa are today’s ‘it’ couple and the excitement for their wedding keeps building. We know their fans will love sharing in their celebration,” Amy Winter, general manager of TLC, said in a statement.
