Why Vanessa Lachey Put Her Son in Preschool: A 3-Year-Old in School ‘Sounds Crazy’

09/14/2015 at 04:30 PM ET

Family comes first for Vanessa Lachey.

“I think one thing that keeps me sane and grounded is to always remember what my number one priority is, and everything else falls into place,” Lachey told PEOPLE Wednesday at the Truth Be Told event in Beverly Hills, before her appearance on the 2015 Paleyfest Fall TV preview panel for her new show.

“For me, that number one priority is my family. When I put them first, then everything else finds a way to work itself out. Then, I at least know which direction I’m going.”

The actress and husband Nick Lachey, 41, welcomed daughter Brooklyn Elisabeth in January. The couple’s baby girl joined older brother Camden John, 3.

Life is picture perfect for Vanessa Lachey.

The actress celebrated her new TV show, People Are Talking, by clinking bottles with her husband in an adorable family photo posted Tuesday to her Instagram.

Standing in thigh-deep water, Vanessa cradles a shaded Brooklyn Elisabeth, 5 months, while Nick holds 2½-year-old Camden John — who looks super cool (and matches Dad!) in a pair of sunglasses.

“Cheers! With my family celebrating my new T.V. family #PeopleAreTalking!” Vanessa, 34, captioned the snap. “I am so excited to be joining #NBC this fall to keep you all laughing every Friday night!”

Vanessa Lachey: ‘When You’re a Mom, You’re a Superhero’

06/08/2015 at 03:00 PM ET

Life is sweeter with two kids — and popsicles!

Vanessa Lachey wears several hats as a mother of two little ones, son Camden John, 2½, and daughter Brooklyn Elisabeth, 5 months. Now, the 34-year-old supermom is joining forces with Popsicle to launch the brand’s first-ever official comic book and new Avengers popsicle — a perfect fit for Lachey, whose son calls himself “Camden America.”

In fact, Camden and Scott Foley‘s son, Keller, have become quite the dynamic duo.

“[Keller] wears capes every day to school — it’s the cutest thing — and Camden became obsessed with it so then they became the duo. Super Camden and Super Keller. It’s fun,” Lachey tells PEOPLE.

“It’s fun to watch little boys let their imagination run wild and for me as a mom it’s great to see him evolve to this little person.”

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.”
