This time last year, pop singer Nick Lachey and his wife, Vanessa, embarked onto the road of parenthood with the birth of their son Camden. Now, fast forward 12 months, and it's Camden's first birthday. Time definitely flies! The couple showed their admiration with a celebration to commemorate the boy's special day. But, oddly, the party wasn't quite what you'd expect from a celebrity couple. In fact, the celebration was a bit more gratifying, because it was mere simplicity at it's best. No circus, face paintings, petting zoo, or party theme.
On Wednesday, September 11, Nick's brother and 98 Degrees band mate, Drew Lachey, and his wife Lea, kicked off the birthday festivities. They came bearing cupcakes, which Vanessa Lachey proudly shared with the world in a Twitter picture.

Then, on Thursday, September 12, Nick and Vanessa celebrated the boy's official date of birth. This time it was Nick's turn to tweet, wishing his son a happy birthday.

According to Reality TV Magazine, the couple agreed not to go overboard for their son's first birthday, as the celebration was more-less for them, as opposed to him. “I won’t do a pool party for his first birthday ’cause I feel like we have the rest of his life to do pool parties. He’s 1. This one’s for mom and dad,” said Vanessa to People Magazine. The celebration was a small, quaint family affair, just how it should be for a little person surrounded by such an abundance of love. The couple was also gracious enough to show their gratitude to all the fans who extended birthday wishes to Camden as well.
