Nick Lachey’s wife, Vanessa Minnillo shared her pregnancy craving on Instagram recently and it is not pickles and ice cream. The 33-year-old TV personality recently revealed that she and her husband are expecting baby number two and frequently posts about how she is staying fit and fabulous during her pregnancy.
On Wednesday, Minnillo posted a photo of a coconut with a red straw in it, with the caption “Kick starting my day off RIGHT, fresh from the source!” She went on tell her followers, specifically expectant mothers, that her favorite healthy drink is a “superfood for pregnancy.”
“Coconut oil and coconut water are a superfood for pregnancy. So drink up Mamas!”
Minnillo and Lachey are expecting a baby girl this time around. Their big announcement happened on another important day: their third wedding anniversary. On July 15, three years after the couple said, “I do” on Sir Richard Branson's private Necker Island in the British Virgin Islands, Lachey shared the news with his Twitter fans, tweeting, “Can't think of a better way to celebrate 3 years of marriage to my beautiful @VanessaLachey than this! #family.”
The couple’s adorable son, Camden, will turn two on September 12. The majority of Manillo’s Instagram photos are of her son playing and enjoy life with his loving parents. He will soon share the spotlight with his baby siter who will undoubtedly inherit both of her parents good looks.
Baby girl Lachey’s due date has not been revealed yet and neither has her name. US Weekly posted a photo of Minnilllo’s tiny baby bump the day her pregnancy was revealed, but it’s impossible to tell how far along she is. Most ultrasounds reveal the sex of the baby at around 16 weeks, so the celebrity couple’s second baby may arrive towards the end of the year. Her name will likely stay under wraps until then.
After Minnillo gave birth for the first time back in 2012, she was very open about how she dealt with post-pregnancy baby blues. She detailed her struggles with first time motherhood on her blog. Her post "Inside Story: My Experience with Baby Blues” drew national attention and helped to raise awareness about postpartum blues, a less severe form of postpartum depression.
In her March 2013 blog post, Minnillo wrote, " felt lost, unloved, alone and at my wits end ...I had never known anyone who was sad after having a baby (or at least they never mentioned it), and I never thought it would happen to me.”
Now, almost two years later, she is ready to give childbirth and a second round of motherhood another chance. From the looks of the happy pictures of Camden, it’s well worth another try.
