Vanessa Lachey: ‘I Don’t Even Know My Size’ Since Giving Birth

Vanessa Lachey has already bounced back after giving birth to her baby girl in January.

But exactly how much she’s shed since becoming a mom of two is still a mystery — even to Lachey.

“I don’t even know my size right now, honestly,” she tells PEOPLE while promoting her partnership with March of Dimes. “I did the fitting for [this interview] and I was like, ‘Just have everything from [size] 4 to 10.’ I really don’t know!”

Her ability to focus on her family of four — including son Camden John, 2 — can be credited to Lachey’s amazing support system, starting with husband Nick.

“It’s more about the perspective that I have as a woman and a mother and a wife and how I feel it’s not about, ‘Gosh, I need to get back to a certain size’ or ‘I need to be a certain way,’ ” she explains. “I feel good and, thankfully, from my husband and my family and friends surrounding me, I feel beautiful.”

Nick Lachey: Why We Named Our Daughter Brooklyn

04/27/2015 at 10:45 PM ET

She’s only 3 months old, but already Nick Lachey‘s daughter Brooklyn Elisabeth knows an important secret.

“I’ll come up to her and make faces and she smiles and laughs, she’s already got me wrapped around her fingers,” the 41-year-old host of VH1’s Big Morning Buzz told PEOPLE after shooting the cover of the upcoming 2015 Toys “R” Us Toy Guide for Differently Abled Kids at a New Jersey photo studio Wednesday.

“The whole daddy’s-girl thing, she’s already got me hook, line and sinker,” adds Lachey, who is working with the brand on the gift guide, an annual shopping resource for those who know and love children with special needs. (Having a brother with Asperger’s, a form of Autism, has helped Lachey understand the different ways kids can learn.)

“[Brooklyn] is the happiest baby ever,” he says. “She laughs and smiles, just the sweetest disposition.”

Already, the differences between Brooklyn and her big brother, Camden John, 2, are evident.

“Cam is a little bit more reserved and our daughter is a firecracker,” Lachey explains. “You could just tell that she’s going to have a very, very strong will and she’s going to give him a run for his money.”

Since he and wife Vanessa welcomed daughter Brooklyn Elisabeth in January, Nick Lachey has been cherishing guy time with the couple’s son Camden John.

“It’s definitely all about dude time now,” the VH1 Morning Buzz host, 41, tells PEOPLE.

“Cam and I are out in the yard playing and Mom and Brooklyn are doing what they do — which is a lot of feeding and sleeping … It’s a lot of fun.”

And while Lachey feels “very blessed” to have both a boy and girl — “I can just call off the hunt,” he jokes — it’s taken his 2-year-old son some time to adjust to the new addition.

“He’s starting to warm up to the idea. His initial reaction was put her back, put her back in the belly. I don’t  want any part of this,” the dad of two jokes.
