Pregnant Vanessa Minnillo wants to be able to drive in the carpool lane now she is carrying a child.

The 31-year-old 'Wipeout' host - who is expecting her first baby with husband Nick Lachey - jokes that she should be allowed to use the dedicated lane for cars carrying more than one passenger as she technically is.

She tweeted: As I was driving to work this morning, I wondered if I could take the ''carpool'' lane, since I have a bun in the oven. Technically 2 people!''

Meanwhile, the first-time mother-to-be is enjoying feeling her little one come alive insider her.

She tweeted: ''One of the most Amazing, Exciting, Beautiful feelings in the world, is your baby moving in your belly. I wish Nick Lachey could feel this.''

However, she admits that on a less positive note, pregnancy hormones have turned her in to a ''bitch''.

Asked if she has started using her condition to get her other half to run errands, she said: ''I'm not using them as excuses to make him do stuff, but I am using them as an excuse as to why I'm such a b-i-t-c-h sometimes!

''I'll snap and them I'm like, 'Oh honey, it's the baby'.''
