Nick Lachey Rummaged Through the Garbage to Find His Wife Vanessa’s Wedding Ring

Nick Vanessa LacheyNick and Vanessa Lachey celebrated six years of marriage on Saturday, July 15 (

Talk about devotion! After Nick Lachey’s wife Vanessa lost her wedding band, the doting husband rummaged through the trash to find it. Luckily, he did!

“This is true love after 6 years of marriage,” the former 98 Degrees singer wrote after finding the sparkler. “Digging through dirty diapers and trash to find your wife’s missing wedding ring!! #success.”

Fans followed up with stories of similar experiences and plenty of praise for the singer-turned-actor. “Close call,” one follower wrote. “Nice save Nick! Definitely winning those hubby points.”

Lachey, 43, first met the actress, 36, when she starred in the music video for his 2006 hit “What’s Left of Me.” The two got engaged in November 2010 and married in summer 2011. They now share three children, Camden, 4, Brooklyn, 2, and Phoenix, who will turn one in December.

According to Lachey, one key element keeps his marriage going strong. “It’s kind of cliché but communication is the biggest thing in a relationship,” he told People shortly after his youngest son was born. “You have to talk; you have to express yourselves. You don’t want to look back and resent not being heard.”

And alone time is still a priority for the lovebirds. “It’s important you spend time together, just the two of you,” he noted. “But family’s everything so it’s important to spend time with the family.”

While the couple always planned on having three children, the possibility of more kiddos is a definite possibility. “Short of a surgical procedure, I guess it’s always an option, but I’ve given up on trying to predict these things,” Lachey told the mag. “Apparently there’s a way to make babies and we’re fairly good at it, so you never know. But I think right now, three feels like a very good number.”

One thing’s for sure: Lachey loves being a dad! “What’s really cool is they’re all so different in their own ways, and you don’t really see that until they start to get older and get their personality,” he concluded to the mag. “They’re all so unique and different, and you love the different things about them in different ways.”
