Vanessa Lachey is dishing on the lessons she has learned about marriage while hosting Love Is Blind with her husband Nick Lachey.
The NCIS Hawaii star revealed that the couple — who tied the knot in July 2011 — depend on “constant communication” in order to make their relationship work.
“What we constantly talk about learning is how important communication is,” Vanessa, 42, told E! News. “Yes, it is so cliché. Yes, it is so like, ‘Oh, we’ve heard it before.’ Well, then use it.”
“If people really turn towards each other and communicate, you will find that a lot of misunderstandings will get resolved,” she added. “You will find that nobody’s a mind reader and you can actually really hear your partner out and understand where they’re coming from and maybe help cater to that.”
The TRL alum said over the course of their relationship her “wants and needs” have changed and the pair are still “figuring it out as we go along.”
Vanessa recalled a recent check-in with her husband, 49, during a recent date night.
“At dinner, he’s like, ‘What are you feeling you need more of now?'” she said of Nick, with whom she shares daughter Brooklyn, 8, and sons Phoenix Robert, 6, and Camden John, 10. “And I just thought that’s so interesting because it changes.”
“We just were talking at dinner and we had the best time and we learned a lot more about each other that we don’t usually get in the hustle and bustle of kids and work,” she added.
In 2020, Vanesa shared another secret to their success: “Shower sex.”
