Vanessa Minnillo marries Nick Lachey

07/15/2011 by Corinne Heller

Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo have finally tied the knot, reportedly on a tropical island.

The 37-year-old pop singer and host of NBC show "The Sing Off" and Minnillo, who is 30 and is the new co-host of ABC's "Wipeout," became engaged in November 2010 after dating on and off for at least three years.

Minnillo's spokesperson confirmed to OnTheRedCarpet.com that the pair married on Friday, July 15, but offered no further details.

People magazine reported that Minnillo and Lachey wed that day in a "tropical island ceremony in front of just 35 friends and family" and had their 35 wedding guests flown to the event.

The bride wore a two-piece Monique Lhuillier gown and the groom donned a Dolce & Gabanna suit, the magazine said. Spokespeople for the two had no immediate comment.

Lachey and Minnillo went public with their relationship soon after she appeared in his music video "What's Left of Me," which was released in 2006. The clip depicts Lachey's marriage and divorce to fellow pop singer Jessica Simpson, who is played by Minnillo.

Lachey and Simpson were married between 2002 and 2006 and have no children together. The two starred on the MTV reality show "Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica," which documented their married life together. The wedding of Lachey and Minnillo will also be televised - as part of a TLC network special.

Minnillo had told OnTheRedCarpet.com that the two wanted to get married before 2012. Both she and Lachey have said they want to have children.

"We want to have a family and we're very excited about that, so I wouldn't be surprised if it doesn't take too long," Lachey had told OnTheRedCarpet.com in mid-June. "At least that's my hope. I'm getting up there. I gotta start pumping them out."
