Vanessa Minnillo, 31, has revealed she is expecting her first child with husband Nick Lachey. The former boy-band star appeared on Live with Kelly on Monday morning (March 5, 2012) to outline his plans for the birth.
Asked if he plans to coach Vanessa in the delivery room, Lachey, 38, explained, "I've been told - because that's what happens now, I'm told things - that it's going to be a waist-up situation, if you know what I mean", When pushed on what he meant exactly, Nick continued, "I'm gonna be there, I'm gonna be supportively there, holding hands, and coaching, breathing, all that good stuff.But apparently I won't be down below, seeing what's happening. I'll be up above, helping". Lachey explained that he actually has experience of being in the delivery room, revealing that he'd videotaped the birth of a friend's child several years ago, saying, "I asked him, 'How do you want me to handle this, do you want me to get in there and get the detail?' And he said, 'Yeah.' We all got very close that day". As for how he found the experience, Nick said, "I didn't expect it to be what it was.but it was a really incredible, awesome moment".
