Nick Lachey Talks Having Kids With Wife Vanessa Minnillo: 'I Have To Get On The Kid Wagon!'

Nick Lachey had his dream wedding with Vanessa Minnillo in July, has a new house in his hometown of Cincinnati – now, the star and his new wife just have to fill it.

“The Sing-Off” host stopped by Access Hollywood Live on Monday, where he revealed that his fatherhood plan is taking shape.

The 37-year-old told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover that he recently bought a home next door to brother and former fellow 98 Degrees member Drew Lachey.

“That’s kind of that brother dream,” Nick said. “We’re gonna grow up and have houses next to each other. Our kids are going to play in the back yard together.”

Despite being married to a fellow star, Nick said his ladylove is getting used to the Midwest lifestyle.

”[Vanessa has] really growing to love Cincinnati, it’s obviously not LA or New York… but it’s a great place to raise a family. It’s where my family is and it’s kind of her family now, and we’re loving it,” he continued. “I love the idea of raising kids in the Midwest, where the values are good and I love the idea of raising my kids next to my brother.”

Adding, “Just one problem, I have to get on the kid wagon!”

Nick stopped short making a big baby announcement, saying, “One day that will be awesome.”

“The Sing-Off” airs Monday’s at 8 PM on NBC.
