Nick and Vanessa Lachey are expecting their second baby, their publicists confirm.

The singer and VH1’s “Big Morning Buzz Live” host first made the announcement on his Twitter account Tuesday, which also marked the couple’s third wedding anniversary.

He posted a photo of their almost-2-year-old son, Camden, running on the beach with a heart in the sand that says, “It’s a girl.”

The free outdoor concert, which featured multiple acts, was aired live on WPVI-TV. The station censored the broadcast.
