Lacey said that his wife had been on the show in January.  While she was in New York, Lachey was in the Bahamas. “She went to the store and got a pregnancy test and it came back positive. We're having a baby,” he said on the show.

The couple married in July 2011. Lachey said his wife is due late summer or early fall.  They plan to learn the sex of the baby, and Lachey even talked about possible baby names on the show.

"If it's a girl, I think it might be Sophia. If it's a boy, I'm not sure," said Lachey, but he added that he’s always favored the name Colin John Lachey.  “Call him C.J. for short,” he said.
