Fingers Crossed for Round 2: Nick Lachey + Vanessa Minnillo are Engaged!

The happy couple ringing in the New Year in New York. (

Whoop, whoop!  Looks like the former Mr. Simpson (ya snooze, ya lose Jess!) and his long time lady friend, Vanessa Minnillo are finally making it official, and this wh@cked out wedding crasher is as pleased as punch!  I mean, y’all already know I love me some hot celebrity gossip, but there is nothing better when the famed whispers heard ’round the water cooler become factual news… especially when it is centered around reports this sweet!

According to, Lachey, 36, and Minnillo, 29, became the latest on a long list of sexy celebs gearing up to take “the plunge” when late Thursday afternoon near a beach in California, Lachey got down on one knee and romantically requested for Minnillo be his wife.  **Swoon City**

I mean, will you just get a load of these two lovies??  Too freakin’ cute, right? (story cont’d below…)

The engagement ring – according to a source – is a Bader & Garrin Asscher-cut diamond flanked with trapezoid trinkets, and while I have a tendency to get twisted around with ring shapes, sizes and designers, as jewelry was never my thing – gasp!, I have no doubt that it’s b.e.a.uuuutiful because they are so beautiful!

As a girl who openly supported “Team Nick” through the post J. Simp years, I have to admit my bias in seeing that my boy was still open to and has since found love again, which is precisely why I’d like to wish Lachinnillo – ha, don’t act like you’re not impressed – all the best!

And cheers to many, MANY years of life, love, happiness and (fingers crossed X2) babies!!!  Helloooo???  Don’t even front like their children wouldn’t be all kinds of beautiful!  Heck, with the DNA combination those two will provide, they would be doing the world a disservice by not procreating.  Their kids will probably come out glowing with wings!

Nicole Richie + Joel Madden Make It Official

And can I just say, “Good for you, Nicole and Joel… Good.For.You!!”  These two crazy kids have been canoodling for over three years now, and while they’ve been engaged for quite some time, they didn’t make an official announcement until this past Monday via Richie’s interview on the Late Show with David Letterman and Madden’s tweets.  According to, rock ‘ n’ roll’s royal couple applauded their family and friends for keeping this delicious dish under lock and key long enough for them to enjoy it as a couple first, before letting the whole world in.

Again, I gotta say, “Good for you!”  I love love love that they wanted some time for themselves before they broadcast their nuptials to the world.  Wedding news going global almost seems inevitable when you’re a celebrity; so, it’s refreshing to see when famed friends find value in something more than publicity.

Armed with two b.e.a.uuuutiful babies, daughter Harlow (2) and son Sparrow (5 months) and what appears to be true Hollywood happiness, Richie and Madden will be walking down the aisle… and no one could be prouder than Papa Richie himself.  He reported to exclusively,

My happiness for Nicole and Joel knows no boundaries.  They have given me two beautiful grandchildren… and have proven to be great parents.  Lionel Richie 

Awww!  You gotta love a daddy’s love for his daughter :)

Now, as far as when these two will unite in wedded bliss?  Who knows??  Only time will tell, I suppose.  In the interim, however, you can be sure I’ll keep my fingers crossed and mailbox cleared for an invite!  Haha!  Congrats again you two and cheers to many years of happiness!
