Nick Lachey‘s 3-month-old daughter Brooklyn Elisabeth has already captured his heart.
“I’ll come up to her and make faces and she smiles and laughs, she’s already got me wrapped around her fingers,” the proud husband of Vanessa Minnillo told People after shooting the cover of the upcoming 2015 Toys “R” Us Toy Guide for Differently Abled Kids. “The whole daddy’s-girl thing, she’s already got me hook, line and sinker.”
Lachey adds that Brooklyn is a well natured baby.
“She is the happiest baby ever,” he said. “She laughs and smiles, just the sweetest disposition.”
The differences between Brooklyn and her big brother 2-year-old, Camden John, are already evident.
“Cam is a little bit more reserved and our daughter is a firecracker,” Lachey explains. “You could just tell that she’s going to have a very, very strong will and she’s going to give him a run for his money.”
Lachey also explained how he and wife Vanessa came up with their baby girl’s name.
“Well, if you must know, she was conceived in New York,” he laughed. “Not in Brooklyn, per se, but we felt the Upper West Side didn’t have a good ring to it and we wanted to pay an homage to New York.”
