Vanessa and Nick Lachey always make time for "date nights" as it allows them to appreciate each other as a couple.
The 32-year-old actress and her husband Nick welcomed son Camden into the world last September.
Vanessa and the couple's son have been accompanying Nick around the country for his 98 Degrees tour with New Kids on the Block and Boyz II Men, which the brunette beauty thinks is the perfect balance for their family.
"We were on the tour bus… and we ended up in Brooklyn that day, because Nick performed at the Barclays Center. That morning, I surprised him with a boat ride around Manhattan, and we just had lunch on the boat. It was me, him, and Cam," Vanessa told Parade.com when asked what Nick did to celebrate his first Father's Day.
"He did the show that evening, and then that night, we had a date night. Honestly, without sounding super cheesy, it was kind of the perfect mix - just being well-rounded and having work, his love, and his family, his other love, and then having ‘us’ time, which I think is also important.
“I think people sometimes get lost in their kids and they may have forgotten what got them there in the first place, which is their relationship. So, I love that we got to have date night on Father’s Day as well.”
Vanessa was asked about her favourite part of the day as a mother. The stunning star was hard-pressed to single out one moment she enjoys the most.
“I know it sounds really cheesy, but it’s just every day. It’s everything," she gushed.
"He is screaming these noises that he has no idea how he is making come out of his mouth, he’s crawling around, he’s learning how to smile, learning how to talk - it’s just everything. I love it. I’ve wanted to be a mom for as long as I can remember, and now it’s here.”
