Vanessa Minnillo Wants Lots Of Kids With Nick Lachey

First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes…? Vanessa Minnillo got engaged to Nick Lachey in November after dating for four years, so she can finish the sentence. The actress says she is looking forward to having lots of kids with Nick someday.

“I turned 30 and I got engaged and I started really thinking about the next chapter. One of those is family,” Vanessa said. “Ideally, I would love to have three or four, but ask me after the first one. Ultimately, I just want them to be healthy.”

The couple are considering a winter wedding, although they have yet to set a date. “It’s just because of our work schedules. For us, work is important,” Vanessa said, explaining the delay. “It’s our creative outlet, it’s what keeps us going, it keeps us busy, and we want to be sure that we work around that.”

    Well it’s time to get on that then, since she might not be able to conceive while breastfeeding, you gotta account 2 years between kids.

    the not being able to conceive while nursing is a myth most doctors recomend 18-24 months between children. though some have careers that make spacing more important like an award winning actress for example. Ms Manillo better be careful what she wishes for she just might get it and end up like Terese Dion with 14 kids or Katherine Jackson with 10 9 surviving correct her son Marlon had a twin brother named Brandon

    I love Nick and I’m genuinely happy that he has found love again so I don’t mean to be catty when I say this but truly, I fear that if their priorities are such that they can’t even find a wedding date, then the relationship may very well already be on the Nick/Jessica/Newlyweds track. Careers are important but they should never be the top priority. I think Nick is a truly good guy so I hope this relationship lasts a lifetime and makes them both deliriously happy but I’m not convinced that the story will unfold in that happy ending sort of way.
    Also, although it’s true that many women have given birth to healthy children later in life, the statistics still point to a much greater potential for problems with both conceiving, AND delivering a healthy baby after 35. What a shame it would be if they found they could not have children, or if one ended up being sick because they felt their careers were more important than marrying and starting their family. Celebrities, even good ones like these, are so spoiled. They always want it all.
