It’s a slow day on the ho stroll when we look at a birth announcement from Nick Lachey and his wife Vanessa and think, “news!“. But here we are. Apparently Nick still tours (when he’s not trying to get his weed farm off the ground) and Vanessa is a “tv personality” or whatever, but as Tori Spelling can attest, nothing guarantees a tabloid cover like a new mouth to feed.
E! reports that the baby boy arrived on Christmas Eve (rude) and like real amateurs, Nick and Vanessa already revealed his name. Fans will remember that their other two spawn are named Camden and Brooklyn and they are definitely slated to be preppy villains in a 2025 revival production of Pretty In Pink. (Seriously, can we agree that Camden is this new generation’s Biff, Chas, or Troy?) Well, rounding out their brood comes Phoenix Robert Lachey.
Vanessa Lachey and Nick Lachey have welcomed their third child, a baby boy named Phoenix Robert Lachey! The mom of three took to Instagram to announce the exciting news of their baby boy’s arrival, which happened on Christmas Eve. “It’s a very Merry Christmas indeed! We had our Christmas Miracle. Phoenix Robert Lachey decided to show up early and was born on Christmas Eve. Mommy, Daddy, Camden & Brooklyn LOVE You very much! #LacheyPartyOf5,” Vanessa captioned the photo.
Phoenix Lachey. I so rarely get to say this, but that is a perfect drag queen name. That is the kind of name that sounds like it just leaped off of RuPaul’s tongue. “Phoenix Lachey, shantay, you stay.“ That even rhymes! That boy is lucky.
In all likelihood little Phoenix will probably just go by “Nix” or “Nick” but this girl can still hope for “Phoe Phoe” (pronounced Fifi, obviously). At least we have something to look forward to if (ok, when) the Lachey kids inevitably start a family band.
