Jessica Simpson's Gift From Nick Lachey Reveals How the Ex-'Newlyweds' Really Feel

Posted by   + Show Post

jessica simpson and nick lachey newlywedsJessica Simpson may be known best these days for her successful foray into fashion, but once upon a time, she was an MTV reality star who had the world giggling at her commentary on Chicken of the Sea tuna and Buffalo wings. There was a lot to love about watching her with then-hubby Nick Lachey on their short-lived show Newlyweds. When it all fell apart and the two split, fans everywhere were crushed, myself included! But, that feels like a million years ago now that the two have moved on to get engaged/married and preggers with other partners. As we all know, Jess finally popped out her lil' girl with fiance Eric Johnson, Maxwell Drew, and Nick and wife Vanessa Lachey (nee Minnillo) have a baby on the way. Still, I've always wondered if the two still speak at all?

Well, it looks like, at the very least, they're on friendly terms. Because reportedly, Nick and Vanessa have already sent over a lovely baby gift for little Maxie! 

According to a source who spoke with Hollywood Life, "A large basket of pink and white cookies were delivered to Jessica's hospital room at Cedars-Sinai earlier from Nick and Vanessa." Aww! Very sweet!

So, there you have it, people. There's no nasty bad blood between these former Newlyweds! Sure, it might even seem crazy to think that either would harbor bad feelings for the other at this point, when they've both so obviously moved on -- big time. But you never know. That seemed like a pretty rough divorce and it played out in front of the public eye and the two had really built up their careers initially as a couple. But, being that they really do strike me as down-to-earth, sweet people, I guess I'm not at all that surprised that they're playing nice these days.

Good for them! Those of us who have always rooted for them can be even happier now that we know they're comfortable congratulating one another's exciting milestones. (The only question that remains: Will John Mayer jump on the baby gift bandwagon!? He totally should!)

Were you a fan of Newlyweds? Are you surprised Nick and Jess are on such good terms?

I used to watch it. I think Nick is a great guy with a big heart. It could also have been hisnway of saying theyre not enemies and theres no competition between them.
