What's cuter than a new dad gushing over his baby? How about a new mom gushing over her husband being such a good dad?

Vanessa Minnillo Lachey and Nick Lachey welcomed baby Camden John in September and she talked to SheKnows about all the unexpected things about motherhood. For example, Vanessa said no one warned her about the nearly constant feeding her son would require.

"I didn’t understand that they need to eat every two to three hours at first and then three to four a little after that," she said. "... Sometimes we literally had like 15 minutes between him falling asleep and then having to wake him for the next feed. I’m like this goes on 24 hours a day and no one told me about this part of it!" You weren't part of the secret club yet!

One thing she did know was that her 98 Degrees star husband would be a great dad. "That is one of the things I looked for in him when we were dating," Vanessa said. "Not only how he is as a man and a husband, but how he will be as a father. All of my hopes and dreams have come true and he is awesome. I was actually joking earlier that if Nick could nurse Camden he would! If he had boobs he would do it!”

Nick has “moobs,” they just don’t serve a practical purpose. (UPDATE: Unless they do? Did you know about men who breastfeed?) Still, A for effort, Papa! Read the full story for more details on how Nick is such a great dad. Jessica Simpson’s loss is apparenty Vanessa’s (and Camden’s) gain.
