As her son Camden John approaches his first birthday on Sept. 12, Vanessa Lachey is thinking about giving him a sibling.

“I look forward to expanding,” the actress, 32, said Thursday while promoting her new show Dads at Fox’s Television Critics Association summer press tour.

“We talked about three. I’ve always loved having a big family and truth be told, when I’m old and gray I’ll need a couple of them to take care of me!”

As for birthday party plans, Lachey has her hands full with bashes for both the men in her life.

“The same year I’m planning my son’s first birthday, I’m planning my husband’s 40th birthday!” she said with a laugh. “I’ve been [planning] both for the last month and I joked to my friend that I hope I don’t send Maker’s Mark [bourbon] to Camden’s birthday and streamers to Nick‘s birthday!”

And little Camden may be hitting a big milestone by the time he turns one, Lachey adds.

“He’s standing and two days ago he did his first shuffle holding onto something. I’m excited. I already dress him like my husband so I can’t wait to see him walking and looking like my husband!”

To Jenny…why bother reading and THEN taking the time to comment if you don’t care or like this woman and her family? Makes zero sense!

Callie on

I just love this couple and their baby is gorgeous.

Jenny on

To Debbie,
To get a rise out of you.

Misty on

Good for them – they seem to be a very happy (and genetically blessed!) family.

Sandra on

@Jenny…Seems like you have way too much time on your hands if this is how you get your jollies.

Lynn on

Love them too and they are the only couple in Hollywood that are actually real people. Can’t wait to see the new babies to come! Funny, to agree with some others on the board, I have always wondered why people are negative. If so, why in the heck read the article about her??

jada on

Clearly a slow news day

I can’t believe that Nick is going to be 40!!!

I saw Nick in concert on Monday and he is so cute in person, and I wish them all the luck on baby number two.

Camden is one of the cutest baby’s I’ve ever seen! He is truly gorgeous. Loving their little family.

K on

Aww, so cute. I can imagine! I love the lachey family they are so down to earth.

K on

I hope they have a girl next.

Jessica on

Nick has such a cute family. I’m glad he’s with someone who truly appreciates him.

I love this couple. Nick seems like such a great, family oriented guy and Vanessa is lovely and so classy. So glad they found each other.

Jenny, to answer your question, clearly enough people.

Ashley on

Love the Lacheys. They are beautiful and not just the physical beauty. They appear to have that rare love that many times is elusive for couples in the entertainment arena.

Vanessa on

Camden is such a cutie!!! I have always liked Nick, since 98 degrees. I am so glad he found someone that makes him happy. And, at least he has his life figured out unlike his idiot ex.

Marky on

Vanessa, is there any really good reason a compliment regarding this couple has to include an insult to Jessica? They divorced long ago, and both have moved on; that means the rest of us should, as well.

Ann on

Congrats to them, beautiful family!

Amber on

Jenny needs to stop being so negative!
