Vanessa And Nick Lachey Welcomed Baby No. 3 On Christmas Eve

He’s here! Vanessa and Nick Lachey have welcomed a third child into their family!

The famous couple happily welcomed baby boy Phoenix Robert into the world on Christmas Eve! The birth was announced through a photo on Vanessa’s Instagram posted on Monday. The snap shows baby Phoenix holding his mother’s fingers.

Vanessa captioned the photo “It’s a very Merry Christmas indeed” and referred to baby Phoenix Robert Lachey as their early “Christmas Miracle.”

The announcement that a third child was on the way was made back in September, through another post on  Vanessa’s Instagram account. The caption read: “We got a new crib! Now we need a new CRIB!” The photo showed Vanessa cradling her baby bump and posing in front of the family’s new home along with Nick and their two older children, son Camden, 5, and daughter Brooklyn, 11 months. Baby Phoenix officially makes the adorable celebrity family a #LacheyPartyOf5.

And just when you think Vanessa’s Instagram couldn’t get any cuter, she posts this video of Nick finding out that they are having a baby boy! Camden approaches his dad with a big blue balloon to spill the beans.

Nick Lachey has expressed in the past how much he enjoys being a dad. Lachey opened up to People after Camden’s birth.

I had a lot of expectations for what fatherhood would be because I thought about it for so long but when it happens, it blows your mind every day. This little creature that you created, that looks to you and depends on you, and just brings you so much joy, you just can’t put it into any kind of words. Your kids are the biggest blessing you could ever possibly have in life.

Congratulations, Vanessa and Nick, on your growing family!
