After almost four years of dating, Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo are engaged, their reps confirm exclusively to UsMagazine.com.
“We’re excited and incredibly happy about our engagement and we look forward to a wonderful future together,” the couple said in a statement.
Lachey and Minnillo began dating in 2006, following his highly-publicized divorce from first wife, Jessica Simpson. Though they briefly split last summer, they got back together a short time later.
“I popped the question on bended knee,” Lachey tweeted Thursday. “I do a lot of squats so my knees are very strong.”
Minnillo told Parade their relationship has lasted all this time because they openly communicate.
She said they have no plans to do a reality show.
Congratulations to the happy couple!!
