Vanessa Minnillo Lachey says husband Nick has started “nesting” in anticipation of their first child.
“I have [been nesting] in my mind but I’ve been a little consumed with work. But the interesting thing I’ve noticed is my husband is nesting. I always thought it was the woman but he’s doing his little nesting part too.”
“He saw this old table we have and he sanded it, then he stained it, put glass on it. He made us a desk! It was pretty incredible.
“Now I feel guilty so I think because of that I tried to put the stroller together the other day. But we have a good amount of time to prepare.”
Minnillo also reveals that she is suffering from pregnancy cravings, but trying to keep them in check.
“I think it’s important to let yourself indulge but what I eat, what I put into my body, goes directly to my baby. It makes you think, ‘Do I really want to get that Snickers bar snack or do I want to get a bowl of fruit?’ So then I go for the fruit and the antioxidants.”
“But of course I’m human and after we went out to dinner last night, I had a bowl of ice cream. After the baby is born, I still want to have me. I don’t want to start at ground zero to try and get back to that,” she said.
