The night of January 5, 2012, Vanessa Lachey had a gut feeling that something was up. She got a pregnancy test on the way back to her hotel — and her intuition was right. She was pregnant. However, her husband, Nick Lachey, was in the Bahamas, and she had to fly to see him the next day. So she held onto the news until they could talk face to face.
Vanessa shared more on her new website, in a post about how she revealed her pregnancy to Nick — and how they returned to the scene of the Bahamas revelation a year later, with their new son.
"Once I finally got there, I could barely contain myself,” Vanessa wrote. “But I knew that I made it this far, I didn't want to just blurt it out in front of everyone. Once I was settled, I changed into my beach clothes and asked Nick if he wanted to go for a walk on the beach. All I kept thinking about was this little life inside of me, that WE made. He was growing, and we were going to become a family. At that I moment everything in me felt so right. I was bursting with emotion and wanting to tell Nick the good news. I was also so nervous because I have thought about this moment my whole life. I took a deep breath, grabbed his hands, looked him in the eyes and told him 'I'M PREGNANT!!!!' He looked at me and asked if I was serious. I said yes, we hugged, and then he said, 'I think I have to sit down!' That was January 6th, 2012."
One year later to the day, Nick and Vanessa visited the same spot, and this time they brought Camden, who was born in September 2012. "It was the perfect sunset, we took the stroller on the beach and walked down to the same exact spot," Vanessa continued. "We will always have that memory together, and now, Cam will have one, too. I took this video that I will embarrass him with in the future, and I'm happy to share a piece of it with you."
Here's a portion of that video. It's cute that they did that — and nice that they can just jet off to the Bahamas in January! Perfect time for it.
