Nick Lachey is celebrating his 10-year anniversary with wife Vanessa Lachey. While chatting with Ryan Seacrest on-air, the 98 Degrees singer and Alter Ego judge shared the key to a successful marriage and also what he learned from his first marriage to Jessica Simpson.
While the duo weren't able to spend their anniversary together — he's filming in LA and she's filming in Hawaii — Nick shared they celebrated via FaceTime.
"She and I are a lot of alike," Nick shared with Seacrest of what works with Vanessa. "We have the same birthday and we have the same mindset... and we met at the right time in our lives. ... It's kind of a combination of chemistry and timing."
When it comes to his relationship advice and what he's learned? "Eternal patience," Nick said. "... Patience is everything man."
Listen back to the full interview with Nick for more, including what to expect with new singing competition show Alter Ego.
Catch the premiere of Alter Ego Wednesday, September 22, at 9/8c on Fox.
