Let it be known: Camden John Lachey was not named after the New Jersey city, says proud papa Nick Lachey. The son of the 98 Degrees singer and TV host Vanessa Lachey was named after a location, however.
Nick Lachey tells E! News that he and his wife were inspired by the route they took to the doctor’s office over Camden Drive in Beverly Hills. Since they wanted their son’s initials to be C.J., they were looking for a “C” name. Colin was vetoed by Vanessa, but they both liked the sound of Camden.
“We fell in love with it, we picked it and that’s where it came from,” he tells E!.
Lachey couldn’t be happier with his baby boy, and is absolutely loving fatherhood so far. “I didn’t come in with any expectations other than it would be incredible,” he says. “It’s a journey, a new surprise, a new experience, a new expression. It’s been great.”
Camden was born in September and is the first child for the couple. They married in July 2011.
