Lacheys hijack son’s birthday

Nick and Vanessa Lachey

Nick and Vanessa Lachey are hijacking their son’s first birthday party.

Their tot Camden John celebrates 12 months on earth in September, and the occasion falls shortly before Nick turns 40.

So TV presenter Vanessa and her 98 Degrees singer spouse, who both share a November 9 birthday, will turn the youngster’s bash into one more suited to them.

“The same year I’m planning my son’s first birthday, I’m also planning my husband’s 40th birthday, so it’s been quite an interesting process [with] different scales of things,” she told People magazine.

“I’m planning over here what kind of wine we’re gonna have and the liquor, and over here I’m like, streamers and beach balls!”

The 32-year-old screen personality admits her son is obsessed with splashing around in water.

While they could have planned a pool party for the baby, she thinks he wouldn’t appreciate it as much as they’d like a good knees-up.

“He loves to dance, he loves music,” Vanessa shared. “He loves the water — the pool, swimming, the beach — to the point that when we give him water and try to sign, ‘Drink, drink,’ he literally puts his face in the cup and starts [acting] like he wants to go swimming.”

“But I won’t do a pool party for his first birthday ‘cause I feel like we have the rest of his life to do pool parties. He’s one, this one’s for Mom and Dad.”

Vanessa is thrilled with the outcome of her relationship and family.

When she began her mainstream acting career, she could only dream of being surrounded by people who love her unconditionally.

“I had one of those Oprah aha moments. Literally when I started at MTV and someone said, ‘Ten years from now, where do you see yourself?’” she recalled.

“I remember vividly saying these three things: I see myself married to a great guy. Check, thank goodness! With at least two or three kids, one is good for now, as I’m learning I’ll take that slowly.”
