Vanessa Minnillo is officially a mom-to-be.

The former MTV “TRL” host has gone public with her pregnancy this past week confirming rumors from earlier weeks.

Rumors first began swirling of a possible pregnancy in earlier weeks when Minnillo was spotted vacationing in Mexico with a visible bump.

She was seen wearing baggy clothing and at times, a large scarf covering her bulging belly though neither she nor Nick commented on the pregnancy rumors.

It was Monday, that Husband, Nick Lachey, 38, revealed the exciting news while co-hosting “Live! With Kelly” to host Kelly Rippa.

The show seemed like the perfect place to make the announcement as Lachey said Minnillo found out she was pregnant while hosting “Live!” back in January.

“She started to feel a little different, not quite herself,” Nick explained.”so she went to the store, got a pregnancy test, and it came back positive.”

The 31-year-old is reportedly due in late summer, early fall. The singer also noted that the couple currently doesn’t know the sex of the baby, which frustrates Lachey. “I can’t take the knowledge that someone out there knows, but I don’t know,” Lachey reportedly said. “It’s like watching a sports game on TiVo.”

The child will be the first for the couple that met on the set of Lachey’s music video for “What’s Left of Me” in 2006 and were married this past July.
