Recent newlyweds Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minillo are ready to start a family and have some babies! (Well, according to Nick that is!)

While promoting his talent show NBC’s “The Sing Off,” the one-time reality star joked when asked if the pitter-patter of tiny feet will be heard any time soon, “I’m doing everything I can.”

He continued, “Trust me, it would make me happy. Family is very important. It’s very important to us. and I’m sure that will be around the corner.”

So after their nuptials on July 15th, how is married life treating the happy couple?

“It’s great,” he said. “Obviously we’re still in the honeymoon period. Not much changed, which, for me, is a good thing. We’ve been together five years. We were very comfortable in our relationship before the marriage.”
