Birthday In Mexico!
The couple in Mexico following their engagement.
Lovebirds Nick and Vanessa Lachey (nee Minnillo) relaxed in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico February 25th after attending a friend’s beach wedding.

Vanessa recently told Access Hollywood (via People) that she officially changed her surname from “Minnillo” to Lachey.  “We talked about it and he was so sweet,” Minnillo said of her discussion with Nick.

“He said, ‘Whatever you want, I understand.’ And I said, ‘But would it mean a lot to you if I took it? Because I’m old fashioned and I want to.’ And he said, ‘What guy wouldn’t want their girl to take their name fully?’ [But] He didn’t push me, no, no, no.”   The poor bastard was so beaten down by Jessica Simpson that he figured he wouldn’t push the issue this time around.

“Just left the DMV, it official… “VANESSA JOY LACHEY” is hittin the streets!” she tweeted February 22nd from her new Twitter handle, VanessaLachey.
