Vanessa is four months pregnant and isn’t throwing caution to the wind — Find out what she is doing to keep healthy!

Vanessa Minnillo and her hubby Nick Lachey are expecting a little one and they are “beyond the moon excited,” the couple tells US Weekly. The mommy-to-be, 31, says she is trying to “eat constantly,” but is aware of what she is putting in her body, while watching her calorie count. It’s better to be safe!

“The only gift I can give my baby right now is what I put in my mouth and how I am health-conscious about trying to stay active,” she says. “[My baby] is actually developing and growing. I think about everything I eat and drink.”

There is no word on the gender of the baby, but when the couple finds out they want to make the announcement fun for their family and friends, the magazine reports. She wants to use cupcakes!

“My sister-in-law found this great idea on Pinterest to put colored cupcake cream in the middle. If it’s a boy, you put blue, and if it’s a girl, you put pink cream in the middle of the cupcake,” she explains. What a great idea!

The future parents have the cutest way of figuring out their son or daughter’s name, “We’ve been yelling them around the house to see how they sound and we call them to come to us,” she says. They haven’t determined a name if it’s a boy, but her and her husband, 38, have the girl’s picked out!
