Vanessa Lachey recently, in an interview with Fox News, talked about how she will always be grateful for her husband and kids. Vanessa and her husband, Nick Lachey have been together for 11 years now.
Having a rocky start wasn’t very pleasant for Vanessa. Nick was very open about his relationship with his ex-wife. Moreover, their divorce was also done publically, which ultimately made Vanessa go through the hatred of his fans.
She told Fox News Digital: “He was literally in a very public marriage and a very public divorce, and I had to go through all that sh–t very publicly, and it was very hard for us.”
Furthermore, Vanessa talked about how she has been balancing her work and family from the very beginning. She shared an incident where she decided to move her family to Oahu so that she could take the opportunity to be the first female lead in the NCIS Franchise.
“To be on ‘NCIS: Hawai’i,’ the first choices we made were, ‘What would this do to our children and how beneficial will this be for our family?’ and all the signs pointed to ‘We needed to move to Hawaii.”
Vanessa also said that she feels lucky to have her family with her. There are others who had to move to some other city for work and leave their family behind. She is grateful to be able to have them without sacrificing her career.
“I have a great support system in my husband, and I don’t take that for granted,” I know there are a lot of single parents out there, a lot of parents just struggling to not have family or help around. I’m very grateful to have them.”
Vanessa also shared her secret to a successful marriage and emphasized how much it is important to appreciate the little things in life.
She said – “One of the things we heavily rely on is communication. I strongly emphasize not just one or the other. Not just the bad … but also when it’s good. You need to be able to tell your partner, ‘Thank you for doing the dishes today. That meant a lot to me. Thank you for letting me sleep in and having coffee for me. Like, thank you so much.”
