SInger Nick Lachey and wife Vanessa Minnillo have welcomed a son.

Minillo gave birth to Camden John Lachey on Wednesday and the proud parents say he has "redefined love" for them.

They told People: "We are incredibly proud to announce the birth of our beautiful baby boy, Camden John Lachey.

"Born today at 6:54 p.m., he came into this world at 8 lbs., 9 oz. and 21 inches. Love has truly been redefined for both of us."

Minnillo previously admitted she was hoping the baby would be a boy because she loved the idea of a "mini" version of her 38-year-old husband.

She said: "It's going great, knock on wood! I'm feeling awesome and no morning sickness, no crazy cravings.

"I've always envisioned a little boy first. Maybe because when I fell in love with Nick -- the man of my dreams and the father of my children -- I could easily imagine falling in love with the mini-him; that's how I see it."

And the 31-year-old presenter won't be afraid to join in when it comes to male activities either when the youngster is a little older.

She has said: "I want to be able to throw a baseball with my son and want to be able to just wrestle with him in the yard, and I want to do all that fun stuff." -- Bang Showbiz
