Vanessa Lachey: Son Camden Is "Such a Little Daddy's Boy"
Nick Lachey plays to thousands of screaming women every night on the Package Tour with 98 Degrees, but no audience can compare to the one he has at home in wife Vanessa Lachey and their 9-month-old son, Camden. In a new interview with Parade.com, Vanessa, 32, reveals that baby Cam is the singer's biggest fan.
"I think Cam just loves anything that Nick does -- he's such a little Daddy's boy, it's adorable," the Wipeout hostess gushes of her son.
The proud mom adds that Nick often serenades the tot with tunes from his album of children's music, A Father's Lullaby. "'Sleepy Eyes' is one song in particular that Nick used to hum to [Camden] when he was still in my belly, so that one to us is kind of special," she says. "He hummed the melody, and then when Camden was born, he added words and lyrics to it. So, that one has a special place in our hearts."
Nick doesn't have a monopoly on lullabies, though. "I sing 'Baby Mine' to him every night, so when I sing that, he knows it's bedtime, and he starts rubbing his eyes and getting ready for bed," Vanessa says. "Overall, we're just constantly talking to him and singing to him...anything to interact with the little munchkin."
Camden, born on Sept. 12, 2012, is the couple's first child -- but he won't be their last. Vanessa recently told HuffPost Live that she and her husband (currently touring with his 98 Degrees bandmates) want "two and three and maybe four" kids down the road.
"I know it sounds really cheesy, but [my favorite part of being a mom is] just every day. It's everything," she tells Parade. "[Camden] is screaming these noises that he has no idea how he is making come out of his mouth, he's crawling around, he's learning how to smile, learning how to talk -- it's just everything. I love it. I've wanted to be a mom for as long as I can remember, and now it's here."
