Vanessa Minnillo is four months along in her pregnancy, and so far, so good!

"It's going great! I have no complaints -- it's been fun," the Summer Wipeout co-host, 31, told Us Weekly at Tide and P&G's Take A Load Off event in Hollywood Tuesday. "It's been a fun process. Every day is a new adventure!"

Minnillo added that she and husband Nick Lachey, 38, "are beyond the moon excited" to become first-time parents later this year. "He's ready to be a dad!"

The couple doesn't yet know their child's gender, but Minnillo has already found a fun way to share the news with family and friends. "My sister-in-law found this great idea on Pinterest to put the colored cupcake cream in the middle. If it's a boy, you put blue, and if it's a girl, you put pink cream in the middle of the cupcake."

If they have a girl, Minnillo and Lachey have already settled on a name. Agreeing on a boy name, however, is more of a challenge. "We've been yelling them around the house to see how they sound and we call them to come to us," Minnillo said.

Minnillo told Us that while she hasn't had any cravings yet, she's "just trying to eat constantly and be aware of what I'm putting in my body and to maintain my caloric intake. . .The only gift I can give my baby right now is what I put in my mouth and how I am health-conscious about trying to stay active."

She added: "I'm not going throw caution to the wind. [My baby] is actually developing and growing. I think about everything I eat and drink."
