Lachey's Anniversary
See how Nick & Vanessa celebrated their anniversary
After nine years of being divorced, you’d think people would stop asking Nick Lachey about his marriage to Jessica Simpson… After all, he’s been remarried to Vanessa Lachey for almost four years, with 2-year-old son Camden and a baby girl on the way.

But leave it to a prying Jenny McCarthy to really unearth old news, asking Lachey during her SiriusXM show Dirty, Sexy, Funny, “How happy are you that you didn’t have a baby with Jessica?”

Nick’s response was honest in the most polite way–though I’m sure he was rolling his eyes in his head because wouldn’t we all?!

“In our situation, that was probably the best thing that could have ever happened that we didn’t have kids,” Lachey replied. “And look, you’re always going to love your kids no matter how you feel about their other parent, but all things being equal, it was the best thing probably for both of us that we went on with our lives.”

He continued, “She’s obviously happily married with two and I’m happily married and about to have two so it all worked out the way it was kind of meant to work out.”

Of course, Nick is speaking about Simpson’s “happily ever after” with football husband Eric Johnson and their two kids Maxwell and Ace.

And speaking of her story, does Nick stay in touch to see how she’s doing here and there?

“She and I don’t necessarily stay in each others lives,” the VH1 host told McCarthy. “I wouldn’t say it’s friends, and I wouldn’t say it’s enemies.  There is just no contact.  We both moved on with our lives…  It’s not animosity, it’s not friendship, it’s just kind of nothing.”

We commend him on that one!
