Prior to his son’s birth, Nick Lachey spoke about how he was excited to embrace parenthood– dirty diapers and all.
“I’ve wanted to be a dad for a long, long time,” Nick told In Touch magazine, in the weeks leading up to wife, Vanessa’s due date. “I’m ready to take it all on.”
And judging by this sweet snap of Lachey with 4-week-old son, Camden John, fatherhood seems to suit him.
The photo was taken during a Tide event in Los Angeles, where he also revealed how the little boy came to get his name.
“It’s kind of a funny story. I’ve always liked the name Colin. We thought that Colin would be the name. And John is my dad’s name,” Nick, 38, told PEOPLE on Tuesday.
“But as we got further into it, I learned that Vanessa wasn’t a big fan of the name Colin, so we started looking for another ‘C’ name.”
PEOPLE reports that Nick, who frequented Vanessa’s obstetrician’s office with her on Camden Drive, one day suggested, “Hey, what about Camden?” At this point, he says, “We didn’t really know anyone else named Camden. It was such a neat name. We fell in love with it and decided on it five or six months ago.”
He went on to add that Camden is a “good baby”.
“He’s got a great temperament. Every day is fun. It’s a new adventure and we’re loving every second of it,” he said.
