Vanessa Lachey is figuring parenthood out

The 34-year-old star, who has son Camden, two, with husband Nick Lachey, is set to welcome a baby girl into the world next month, and says she is much more relaxed ahead of her due date this time round.
The TV presenter said: “Less than three years ago, I was pregnant for the first time and worried about getting everything right. Parenthood has been pretty amazing for me and my husband, Nick, but don’t get me wrong; we’re still figuring things out.” Vanessa admits she didn’t instantly bond with her baby bump when she was expecting Camden and only started to enjoy her pregnancy after she found out he was a boy, but her maternal instinct kicked in as soon as she gave birth.
She told American Baby magazine: “Once Camden was born, certain fears calmed down. I no longer thought, Will I be able to do this? My instincts really did kick in. We stumble and make mistakes, too, but that’s what learning is. That’s the beauty of it.”
The brunette beauty, who previously revealed she suffered from the Baby Blues because she felt overwhelmed, tries not to compare herself to other mothers.
She said: “With social media, people share mostly their best moments. Don’t feel like you’re not doing enough when you see a mom posting about making applesauce after you bought it. Ha ha! It’s fine! Just for raising a little human being you should be commended.”
