Nick Lachey & Vanessa Minnillo Expecting First Child 

Steve Granitz/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- Nick Lachey and wife Vanessa Minnillo are expecting.

During his guest-hosting stint on ABC's Live! With Kelly Monday, Lachey told Kelly Ripa that on the same day Minnillo last appeared on Live!, she didn't feel quite right.  Lachey said that evening, "She went to the store and got a pregnancy test and it came back positive. We're having a baby!"  The audience cheered wildly.

"This is the one thing that more than any other I've looked forward to, and it's overwhelming," Lachey said of his impending fatherhood.  Lachey was previously married to Jessica Simpson, but that union produced no children.

While in the hosting chair, Lachey also told Ripa that he hasn't yet found out the baby's sex, but he and Minnillio are planning to because, as he says, "I can't take the knowledge that someone out there knows, but I don't know!"

Vanessa Lachey Lost 'The X Factor' Job

VALERIE MACON/AFP/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- As she begins her new job as co-host of ABC’s Wipeout, Vanessa Lachey has revealed that she auditioned to be the host of the recently-concluded first season of the Fox singing competition The X Factor.

She lost out to Welshman Steve Jones, and she tells the New York Post, “You can’t be more polar opposite, so I’m okay with that.  Now, if the host was a brunette girl in her early 30s, I would be like, ‘Wait a minute!’”

Winter Wipeout premieres on ABC Jan. 5, and Lachey will interview contestants and provide sideline commentary.  She was initially approached to host the show back in 2008, but she instead concentrated on her acting career, going on to land parts on CSI: New York and How I Met Your Mother.

Of her new role, Lachey admits, “When this came round again, it was like, ‘This is meant to be.’”
