Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo Are Engaged

Second time is apparently the charm for Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo.

The former boy-bander and the True Beauty host announced today that they are engaged to be married. In a joint statement to Us Magazine, Lachey, 36, and Minnillo, 29, revealed,

“We’re excited and incredibly happy about our engagement and we look forward to a wonderful future together.”

Lachey, the former husband of actress/singer Jessica Simpson, and Minnillo began dating in 2006. After a brief break-up last summer, the couple resumed their romance a few months later.

A source close to the couple says of the engagement, 

“They’re so happy, doing great. Thrilled about it.”
