Nick Lachey may have already taught son Camden John a lot of new things — but learning to test the limits wasn’t one of them.

With the VH1 host and wife Vanessa‘s son set to celebrate his second birthday in September, the couple are learning firsthand what the terrible twos entail.

“He knows the word ‘no’ — of course he didn’t learn it from me, but he knows the word,” Lachey told PEOPLE at friend Matt Leinart‘s 8th annual Celebrity Bowl for Charity on Thursday.

“He’s a typical 2-year-old. He sees how much he can get away with and pushes the end of the envelope, but it’s a lot of fun.”

But the proud dad admits there’s plenty of exciting times, too. “It’s a great age. He’s discovering his personality, he’s getting into everything [and] he’s talking like crazy,” he says. “They start to figure things out and push their boundaries.”

Nick and Vanessa Lachey have (another) one on the way!

The couple, already parents to Camden John, 22 months, are expecting their second child — a daughter, Nick announced via Twitter Tuesday.

“Can’t think of a better way to celebrate 3 years of marriage to my beautiful Vanessa than this,” the singer wrote, sharing a photo of Camden running on the beach around a heart in the sand that reads, “It’s a girl.”

While the pair decided to wait until their firstborn was older, it was only a matter of time before the VH1 host, 40, and his wife, 33, expanded their brood.

No pressure Vanessa, but Nick Lachey already has the next two kids all planned out.

Of course he’s completely smitten with the couple’s 17-month-old son, Camden John, but Lachey admits he is starting to get the itch.

“I do want a girl,” he told PEOPLE in New York’s Times Square while promoting his new job as host of VH1’s talk show, Big Morning Buzz.

“I think there’s something emotional about having a daughter that I definitely want to experience.”

But on second thought, “Maybe I’ll get one more boy under my belt first,” he says with a laugh. “I’ll need some help to keep her in line, so a couple of brothers couldn’t hurt.”

Nick Lachey was used to being busy — but nothing could prepare him for the all-consuming role of being a father.

Asked what surprised him most about fatherhood, the 98 Degrees singer tells PEOPLE: “Just how intense it all is. I mean, honestly, it consumes everything you do, every decision you make. Everything in life is completely turned upside down by this little guy.”

Not that Lachey, 40, and his wife Vanessa, 32, are complaining about 13-month-old Camden John.

“We’re incredibly blessed,” he told PEOPLE Monday at TV Guide‘s Hot List Party in Hollywood. “He’s slept through the night since he was three months old. I mean, he’s an angel. But really, everything you used to do — and you’ve done for the previous 38 years — now it’s all flipped around.”

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!”

Nick Lachey ‘Broke Down and Cried Like a Sobbing Child’ at Camden’s Birth

Fatherhood was always something Nick Lachey dreamed of but it wasn’t until eight months ago, when he and wife Vanessa welcomed their son Camden John, that he could have ever envisioned such peace.

“It’s been a long time since I’ve felt this calm,” the singer, 39, tells PEOPLE. Despite juggling hosting duties for two NBC shows, a new album with 98 Degrees, his solo album, A Father’s Lullaby, and a summer tour on the road with New Kids on the Block and Boyz II Men, the first time father is cherishing every second with his family of three.

“I had a lot of expectations for what fatherhood would be because I thought about it for so long but when it happens, it blows your mind every day,” he says. “This little creature that you created, that looks to you and depends on you, and just brings you so much joy, you just can’t put it into any kind of words. Your kids are the biggest blessing you could ever possibly have in life.”

Nick Lachey has always been good at finding all the right words to say (er, sing!), but the new dad still can’t get over the first time he laid eyes on his baby boy, Camden John.

“I was [in the delivery room]. It was surreal, but one of the coolest things to ever see in your life,” the singer and TV host tells Fox News.

“You’re there with the woman you love, she’s giving birth to your child. It’s a pretty magical thing.”

Completely head over heels with his 7-month-old, Nick — who shares Camden that is “into the belly laugh stage” — is basking in baby bliss, but promises not to push his own success on his son.
