Vanessa Minnillo and her hubby Nick Lachey--along with their beautiful 20-month-old son Camden--cover the June 2014 issue of Parents magazine. The beautiful family is "a family first," according to the article, but Vanessa makes it very clear that little Camden isn't welcome in their bed.
"When you've got the little one between you," she says, "it's not as romantic as when the two of you are alone."
It seems the couple has a favorite night time routine that ensues once Camden is down for the night.
"We put on some music or a favorite TV show, pour a glass of wine, have dinner—that's our 'alone time,'" she says. "That's why it was so important to us to establish Camden's sleep schedule right out of the gate. I had six different moms telling me, 'Get him on a routine; you will thank yourself later.'"

Vanessa Minnillo jokes in the Parents article about how she met the former 98 Degrees boy band sensation. It just happened to be on the set of one of his solo endeavor music videos--What's Left of Me.
"Apparently Nick had wardrobe approval, because I was wearing this little dress that was actually a shirt," Minnillo joked.
He added his two cents worth as well, saying, "It was a dress as far as I was concerned."
The two gushed over one another's attributes as well.
"My wife's maternal side is a new dynamic to her personality," Nick Lachey shares. "It's definitely made her even sexier."
Minnillo adds, "I knew the man I was going to marry was not only a great man, a good friend, and a family guy, but he was going to respect and treat me well and be an amazing father and role model to our children. That's Nick."
Vanessa shared the following Instagram photo of herself with Camden on Mother's Day, along with the caption, "This little boy has given me more than he'll ever know. I have experienced the Love of a million hearts and seen the potential we have as women to do it ALL... in our own unique Beautiful ways! Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms! You are loved and appreciated!'
It certainly sounds like Vanessa Minnillo and Nick Lachey have all their ducks in a row--especially where raising Camden and keeping their marriage alive and well are concerned. Might there be more children in their future?
Who knows? If so, he or she will certainly be born into a loving home where Mom and Dad seem to have their priorities straight--something not all Hollywood babies are fortunate enough to experience.
