Nick Lachey made the announcement Monday morning on “Live! With Kelly.” The actor, singer and former reality star said the baby is due in “late summer, early fall.”

“I’ve had a chance to do a lot of great things in my career and my life, but this is the one thing that, more than any other, I look forward to,” Lachey told host Kelly Ripa. “The fact that it’s actually here, it’s overwhelming.”

The couple tied the knot in July. Minnillo, a former host of MTV’s “TRL,” took Lachey’s last name.

It would be remiss not to mention that Lachey’s first wife, singer Jessica Simpson, is also expecting her first child.
