Back in the late 90s, Nick Lachey rose to fame as one of the members of the hit pop band 98 Degrees. From there, his time in the spotlight grew, and while today he is no longer blessing us with smash-hit songs, he is doing an arguably great job at hosting Love Is Blind and The Ultimatum: Marry or Move On alongside his wife, Vanessa Lachey. Being in Hollywood can sometimes get to people's heads, but luckily the singer doesn't have to worry about that -because his kids are sure to keep him humble. And that is exactly what happened when his son hilarious reacted to an old shirtless picture of Nick. Here's what he said.
Nick and Vanessa share three kids together, Camden, 9, Brooklyn, 7, and Phoenix, 5. And although they are all familiar with their dad's past in the world of singing, they had no idea that back in the 90s, he was considered eye candy. So when Nick's wife pulled out a picture of himself without a shirt from a vacation they went on 10 years ago, his eldest son was in disbelief. "My son, Camden, looked at it," Nick revealed to E! News Daily Pop. "He says, 'Who photoshopped daddy's body?'" LOL. Talk about savage! "It was me coming out of the water," Nick explained. "I was all ripped up. It was when I was in shape."
Luckily, Nick found it hilarious and wants actually offended because, at the end of the day, he also loves to mess with his little ones. The What's Left of Me artist said, "I feel like that's part of my responsibility as a loving father is to embarrass them as much as I can." Nick explained some of the things he does that make his kids turn red in the face, "My kids think I'm corny. I'm the guy that pulls up for the carpool drop-off at school and bumps the music." LOL!
Nick confessed that his fatherly instincts are all thanks to how he grew up. "My dad was one of those dads that was never afraid to show my brother and I how much he loved us," Nick shared. "He was constantly telling us how much he loved us, he was always there for us. So, I try to kind of extend that to my own kids. I tell them every day—to the point where they tell me to stop—just how much I love them, always there for them."
