Husband, Boyfriend, & Dating History

Derek Jeter

The first time Vanessa and Derek, who’s a Yankees sport star, were spotted together were in 2003 as they’re attending Knicks game together.

Not much is known about their relationship, except that they parted ways in 2006 for unknown reasons.

Orlando Bloom

She was briefly linked romantically to Orlando several times by the media in 2005. Most assumed they mey in MTV’s Total Request Live episode where she interviewed him.

Neither of them has ever acknowledged the dating rumors.

Nick Lachey

She and Nick, most probably met for the first time in MTV Total Request Live series. However, their relationship wasn’t really developed romantically until she appeared in his What’s Left of Me music video.

She opened up about the relationship with Billboard in a 2017 interview, stating that “[The] video, which was on TRL, was the beginning of our relationship. That’s what made it no longer friends and it got romantic.”

The pair got engaged around November 2010 and tied the knot less than a year later in July 2015 in the British Virgin Islands.

The couple are blessed with three children. Their family reside in Oahu, Hawaii.

Net Worth

She’s an estimated net worth of $25 million, according to multiple online source. She earns her income mostly from her career as an actress and TV host.

TV Shows Hosting

While Vanessa and his husband may not be able to entirely claim the idea behind Love is Blind, the couple appeared to contribute in the concept developing 2023’s Perfect Match and The Ultimatum: Marry or Move On.

It is not exactly known how much they made from hosting these Netflix dating shows, but they reportedly earn $8 thousand for each season.


For her appearance in NCIS series, it’s estimated that she’s being paid anywhere between $15 thousand and $100 thousand per episode.

Real Estate

The couple purchased a more than 8,000 sq ft house located in Encino, California, for $2.85 million in 2011. It reportedly provides six bedrooms and 8 bathrooms. However, the property was put in the market in June 2016.

A couple of months later, they paid $4.15 million for an almost 10,000 sq ft property located in Encino as well. The property is reportedly owned by Jenni Rivera previously. It was listed on the market for $7 million in October 2019 and sold for $6.6 million a year later.

In December 2020, they purchased a mansion owned by Randall Cobb, an NFL player, around Tarzana, California. It was bought for $4.8 milllion, but later sold to Naomi Osakain February 2022.

Music Video Appearances

  • What’s Left of Me (2006) – Nick Lachey


  • 2006 Teen Choice Awards – TV (Choice Personality) – Total Request Live and Entertainment Tonight


“Trust is the most important part of a relationship, closely followed by communication. I think that if you have those two things, everything else falls into place – your affection, your emotional connection.”

“I am an Air Force brat – that’s the terminology they use for military kids who are traveling constantly.”

“I went to eight different schools my first nine years of school.”

“I think there should be a good balance between being a good student and being able to enjoy your high school life.”

“I feel like the word ‘mom’ and ‘supermom’ should be synonymous. When you are a mom, you are a superhero.”

“I didn’t grow up with a mother, so I don’t have that resource to rely on and ask a million questions.”

“I think as I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned to look at life and take every day as it comes.”

“Everything that went on in my life… it was super important for me to have Camden first. And by that I mean my son and to have that relationship with my son to give me that quiet confidence that I needed as a mother and as a woman. Now with Brooklyn, I am just so at ease; I am so comfortable.”

“Well, the thing about my high school, which I loved, is that we had uniforms. But whenever we had a free dress day, it was prep-ville, with sweater vests and polo shirts and khakis and Dockers.”

“The best advice I get is actually from my family and friends. That has been a huge resource I’ve come to rely on.”

“I do a lot of damage to my hair every day because of my work. I just noticed this huge change. It started getting thinner and it started falling out. I hit 30, and I literally felt like I was balding!”

“It’s a comforting thought to know that I’ve got my partner by my side walking through life and all the ups and the downs. I know we can handle it. There’s nothing too big or too crazy that’s going to tear us apart.”

“Without a doubt, priority No. 1 is always my family. Whether it’s my children or my husband or even my girlfriends who are also my family, I put them first no matter what. And it makes it easy to then juggle everything else because it’s never a question.”

“I love seeing my husband hold our daughter and just give her kisses, unsolicited kisses. When he doesn’t know that I’m watching or when I come into the room and I look over and he’s just kissing her forehead or kissing her cheek. He loves her so much, and I love his love for her.”

“When I became a mother of two, I decided to work with brands that remind me of family because they’re my No. 1 priority. Now I’m partnering with Puffs to encourage people to get out and not hibernate inside. People should enjoy the holiday season, and if you do have a runny nose or the sniffles, Puffs is there to take care of your symptoms.”

“My favorite role is mommy. I know that sounds cheesy to people who don’t have kids, or there are even some moms who think it’s cheesy. It’s a role you can’t prepare for; it’s a role you don’t get paid to do, but it is the most rewarding role, and to me, it’s been the most fulfilling.”

Vanessa Lachey is mostly known for being a host of numerous TV shows. That said, her talents do not stop there as she also has a knack for acting and modeling.
