Earlier that year, the pair began flirting on the set of Lachey's "What's Left of Me" video, which was also shot for an episode of "Making The Video." While they played a troubled couple in the clip, their chemistry on set was electric. They may never have gotten their own reality show like Lachey and Simpson, but the pair certainly never shied away from the MTV cameras, with Lachey making several appearances on "TRL" while Minnillo was still host.
They even shared a kiss during the MTV's 2007 New Year's Eve special.
That brings us to now when the pair announced their engagement.
He is known as a member of 98 Degrees, the winner of the second season of Dancing with the Stars, and the younger brother of Nick Lachey. He was a combat medic in the United States Army, was an emergency medical technician (EMT) in NYC, worked in a deli, and was a camp counselor at the age of 16.
He attended the Clovernook Elementary School in North College Hill, Ohio (a suburb of Cincinnati, Ohio) then attended the School for Creative and Performing Arts (SCPA) in the Cincinnati, Ohio Public School District.
In June 2008, Lachey joined the Broadway company of Monty Python's Spamalot as Patsy, the faithful manservant to King Arthur and stayed with the show for three months.
Lachey was a celebrity dancer on the second season of Dancing with the Stars with professional dance partner Cheryl Burke.
And Nick might've wanted to keep his phone switched off as his ex, Jessica Simpson, is apparently livid over a dig he made regarding her father Joe, who has split from her mother after several decades together and is rumoured to be dating a younger man.
