Nick and Vanessa Lachey are some very proud parents. The couple celebrated their baby Camden’s first birthday on Thursday, September 12. Vanessa Lachey tweeted constantly about their baby’s birthday from posting pictures of Camden, to tweeting about how much he means to them and how thankful they are.
It’s amazing to see how far Nick and Vanessa Lachey have come over the years. Nick and Vanessa dated for approximately 5 years before getting married. Vanessa was very open in many interviews about the ups and downs her and Nick went through while dating, and even after becoming parents.
In an interview on Huffington Post, Vanessa Lachey revealed how her and Nick Lachey decided to “take a break” from their relationship (before they got married), to reevaluate their relationship. Vanessa explained how she felt the break was difficult to do; it was for the best because she and Nick realized they were better together as a couple, than apart. In another candid interview with Katie Couric Vanessa Lachey discussed how she suffered from “baby blues” about 6-8 weeks after she gave birth to her baby.
By the looks of things Nick and Vanessa Lachey have been able to rise above difficult times and celebrating their baby’s birthday was a symbol of that. According to People Magazine the couple kept the birthday party very intimate and without a lot of gimmicks. “I won’t do a pool party for his first birthday because I feel like we have the rest of his life to do pool parties. He’s 1, this one’s for Mom and Dad,” said Vanessa to People Magazine.
