Vanessa Minnillo couldn’t keep the smile off of her face as she flashed her brand new engagement ring whilst celebrating her 30th birthday in Mexico on Thursday.
Nick Lachey certainly didn’t skimp when it came to selecting the perfect ring for his wife-to-be. And by the look of things size certainly does matter to the next Mrs Lachey.
Jessica Simpson’s ex husband and his TV presenter fiance announced their engagement yesterday. The 37-year-old singer and 30-year-old Vanessa Minnillo have been dating on and off since 2006.
“If anyone’s heard the rumors of my engagement they are absolutely true,” Nick Lachey, who turns 37 next week, tweeted. “Vanessa and I couldn’t be happier. Thanks for all the love.”
A source close to the couple said that the piece is a platinum, asscher cut diamond with trapezoids on the side from designer Bader & Garrin. “It’s big and beautiful,” says the source. “She loves it.”
‘We’re excited and incredibly happy about our engagement and we look forward to a wonderful future together,’ the couple said in a statement to America’s Us Magazine.
‘They’re so happy, doing great,’ a source adds. ‘Thrilled about it.’
One person that purportedly isn’t so thrilled is Jessica Simpson.
