Baby No. 2 is almost here! Pregnant Vanessa Lachey stepped out with her baby bump on full display over the weekend in Los Angeles. The soon-to-be second-time mom looked cozy in a cream-colored cashmere sweater, skinny jeans, and booties.
During a recent interview with American Baby mag, the TV host shared parenting tips she wished she had known while pregnant with her first child, 2-year-old son Camden. “You may not have an instant bond with her bump,” Nick Lachey‘s wife told the magazine in their December/January issue.
“While pregnant with my son, Camden, I felt guilty because everyone told me about this love I’d feel, and I wasn’t there yet. I remember asking Nick, ‘Is something wrong with me? I’ve wanted this my whole life, and I’m forcing myself to have those feelings,'” she admitted. “For me, the love really flowed when I found out the baby was a boy. That’s when I could finally bond, once I knew ‘it’ was a him.”
Now pregnant with a girl, Lachey’s wife adds that parents shouldn’t stress. “Worrying is a waste of time,” she told the mag. “Once Camden was born, certain fears calmed down. I no longer thought, ‘Will I be able to do this?’ My instincts really did kick in. We stumble and make mistakes, too, but that’s what learning is. That’s the beauty of it.”
And Vanessa is already bonding with her soon-to-be little girl. Tweeting out a link to the magazine’s cover, she wrote: “Baby girl’s 1st cover with mama!”

The happy couple announced they were expecting a girl this past July by sharing an adorable photo of Camden on the beach with the words “It’s a girl” written in the sand. “Can’t think of a better way to celebrate 3 years of marriage to my beautiful @VanessaLachey than this!” Nick captioned the pic.
