Pop star-turned-TV personality Nick Lachey has become a New Year dad after his wife Vanessa Minnillo gave birth to the couple's second child on Monday (05Jan15).
Little Brooklyn Elisabeth Lachey joins big brother Camden John, two.
Lachey's wife has issued a statement confirming the baby news. It reads: "I have been dreaming of this moment for as long as I can remember, the day I was going to meet my little girl. A friend recently told me how magical today was going to be because it's the day I would meet my best friend.
"I can't even begin to tell you how it felt to hold her in my arms for the very first time. Mommy, Daddy and big brother Cam love you so much already, Brooklyn!"
The couple announced it was expecting a baby girl last summer (Jul14).
