Vanessa revealed to the actor and 98 Degrees singer that they were having a boy by surprising him last month with a bunch of blue balloons around their home.

The couple had already announced in September that they were expecting their third child to make themselves a #LacheyPartyof5.

Congrats to the growing family!
