Pop a bottle of champagne, folks! It looks like Nick Lachey has finally decided to put a ring on his long-time girlfriend Vanessa Minnillo's finger and make their relationship official. After four years together (and one brief summertime breakup), the couple has gotten engaged!
"We're excited and incredibly happy about our engagement and we look forward to a wonderful future together," said Nick, 37, and Vanessa, 30, in a statement to US Magazine. Nick Lachey & Vanessa Minnillo: Newlyweds 2.0?

The former 98 Degrees boy-bander even Tweeted the happy news: "Hey all. If anyone's heard the rumors of my engagement, they are absolutely true! Vanessa and I couldn't be happier. Thanks for all the love."
Although we prefer the parody, Nick Lachey Twitter account's take on it better, where the fake Nick wrote: "I popped the question on bended knee. I do a lot of squats so my knees are very strong."
Someone whose Twitter account was eerily silent when news of Nick's engagement became public? That would be his former wife Jessica Simpson, who we can't imagine being happy about the news, especially after her recent, awkward run-in with Nick and Vanessa and the catty comments she made. Is Jessica Simpson Pregnant? Or Just A Tad Pudgy?

Although no wedding date has been announced, we're guessing that Nick will most likely beat his ex down the aisle again, as Jessica has only been dating her boyfriend, Eric Johnson, for less than a year. Hopefully, Nick, who described Vanessa as "a very smart girl" during an interview last year with Good Day Philadelphia, won't make the same mistake and do another Newlyweds 2.0 type of reality show, despite the fact that there are probably a lot of people who'd love to see one of his and Vanessa's intimate, soapy, shower-talks on tape!
