Nick Lachey bought a house next door to his brother so they can raise their children together.

The 'Sing-Off' presenter married Vanessa Minnillo in July and moved back to live near his brother Drew in their hometown of Cincinnati and revealed he wants to fill his new home with kids as soon as possible.

Nick told Access Hollywood: "[Vanessa has] really growing to love Cincinnati, it's obviously not LA or New York but it's a great place to raise a family. It's where my family is and it's kind of her family now, and we're loving it. I love the idea of raising kids in the Midwest, where the values are good and I love the idea of raising my kids next to my brother.

"That's kind of that brother dream. We're gonna grow up and have houses next to each other. Our kids are going to play in the back yard together.

"Just one problem, I have to get on the kid wagon!"
