Vanessa and Nick Lachey's 2-month-old son really does look like a Phoenix in new pic

Vanessa and Nick Lachey’s youngest child, Phoenix Robert, turned 2 months old on Friday, and he marked the milestone by posing for his parents.

He was a little too tired to look into the camera. Must have been a wild celebration!

💙My Phoenix💙

“My Phoenix,” Vanessa Lachey wrote in the caption, surrounded by two heart emojis.

He’s just too precious in his striped onesie. And with that background he looks like, well, a phoenix.

“We were looking for a name, and actually my wife ... for some reason River Phoenix was on her mind, she thought, ‘I think this is a cool name.’ She ran it by me, and we agreed on that as the name long before he came.’”

Vanessa Lachey formally introduced us to Phoenix Robert, born on Christmas Eve, a couple of weeks ago with a video of her son smiling as she kissed his head.

What do the Lacheys have planned for Phoenix when he turns 3 months old? It remains to be seen, but one thing’s for sure: It’ll be really cute.
