Vanessa Minnillo Shares Valentine's Day Love Letter to Baby Camden
Valentine's Day isn't just for lovers! As new mom Vanessa Lachey (nee Minnillo) proves, it's a time to celebrate all kinds of affection and appreciation.
Lachey's special someone is baby Camden John, 5 months, her son with husband Nick Lachey. In a special Valentine's Day post on her new website, the Wipeout host, 32, declares her love for the little boy via a letter from her personal journal.
"When I got married, I started a journal for mine and Nick's kids to read as they got older," she explains in her blog. "I wrote about how Nick proposed, our wedding, our first home as a family, our adventures together, and how we are as people and as a couple..."
"Once I got pregnant, I started writing letters to our unborn baby. I would tell him how loved he is, and how excited I am to share EVERYTHING in the world with him," she continues. "Then, once he was born, the letters grew into telling him how grateful we are to have him in our lives...I know he won't understand it now, but that's the beauty of a journal! It's a book we will have forever as a family."
The post includes a snapshot of the journal in question, with a handwritten letter to her son, dated Feb. 14, 2013. "Cam," she writes. "This Valentine's Day you'll only be 5 months old, but I feel like I've loved you forever. I have wanted to be your mommy for as long as I can remember. Nothing in this world could ever compare to the way you make me and your daddy feel everyday!"
"Words don't even begin to express how much more beautiful you make our life together," she adds. "As you grow and take in this world around you, know that you are loved today and everyday all because you're you! Sweet Precious Little YOU. Happy First Valentine's Day!"
