Nick Lachey: Is happy & Settling into Newlywed Life Again

31 Jul

Newlywed Nick Lachey isalready being diligent about remembering that all-important anniversary date. 

“It’s actually two weeks today, ouranniversary,” he told PEOPLE on Saturday of his July 15 nuptials. “Boy, I should get some flowerson the way home!” 

Settling in to married life with Vanessa Minnillo has beenan easy transition, he reports. “It doesn’t feel any different, which Ithink is a great thing – I think that means it
was good to begin with,” says the singer, 37. “We’rejust very comfortable and happy in our life together, so now we are back towork and back to the routine.” 

For Lachey, that means promoting the third seasonof The Sing-Off, which premieres Sept. 19, but he’s just as excitedabout his bride’s new gig. 

“I am begging to go on that thing,” hesays of the hit game show Wipeout which Minnillo, 30, will co-host. “I’ve asked her, ‘When is friendsand family day?’ When they get into production on that in the fall, I hope togo out there and take a turn at it and get a little muddy.” 

But Lachey won’t be dragging his non-singing wifeout on the Sing-Off stage.
“She is frequently backstage and very supportive and she’s agreat hosting resource for me,” he says of Minnillo. “She’s alwaysthere when I need her [but] on-stage is probably not the best fit for her onthis show!”


While his summer vacation has ended (“It wasa blessing to be able to relax on my honeymoon,” he says), Lachey adds that he’sexcited to get back to work, both on his show and in the studio.”Singing,” he says, “has always been my love.”

I hope this marriage works out for Nick, I think itwill as long as they stay away from reality show. Sometimes money just isn’tworth it.

Muchto her surprise, however, news of the possibility of a foreign adoption strucka chord on Twitter.
“Igot some Tweets … of people saying, ‘You should adopt from America’ and ‘A lotof kids need help’ and of course that’s true, but you know what? How can youtell a woman where she should adopt from?’” she questions. ”You’ve got tofollow your heart. So if it’s a foreign country, if it’s in your backyard … Achild is a child.”
Despitetheir “really tough” battle with infertility, Rancic is determined to keep anupbeat attitude. “Right now we’re doing a year of fun — we just needed time off,” shesays. “You’ve got to look at the positive.”
