The 32-year-old star will be the first to say that motherhood certainly doesn’t come without its challenges.
“I think the diaper thing,” Vanessa told Us Weekly when asked what the hardest thing about life with a baby has been. “His first blowout, I made two rookie mistakes: No. 1, I didn't put a diaper underneath the old one, and No. 2, I didn't let him finish. Nick and I laughed ourselves to tears.”
Thankfully, her husband Nick Lachey has been more than willing to step it up on the diaper duty.
“I’m really lucky. He changes them a lot,” the TV host said. “Since I nurse, Nick sees that as his bonding time. He’ll talk and sing to him while doing it.”
And Vanessa’s advice for moms who are feeling a tad overwhelmed? “Don’t be scared to accept help,” she said. “If someone wants to come over and cook or clean, take it!”
