The 43-year-old singer took to Instagram to announce the adorable news – and to tell the world it certainly was the greatest Christmas gift they could imagine.
The new arrival came on Christmas eve, with Nick announced it with a heartwarming snap of the newborn’s hand resting on his wife’s fingers.
Nick wrote to his 361k followers: “It’s a very Merry Christmas indeed!
“We had our Christmas Miracle. Phoenix Robert Lachey decided to show up early and was born on Christmas Eve.

Although the baby came at a surprising time, the sex of the baby was revealed to Nick in the cutest possible way weeks before.
After coming home from his tour over the summer, the star arrived to find his model wife surrounded by blue balloons.
And pulling his suitcase into the house, the performer couldn’t stop smiling as his eldest child, Camden, ran at him carrying one of the decorations.
Then taking his daughter Brooklyn from his wife, the family of four crouched down on the floor to share a hug all together.

Nick and Vanessa met in 2006 after the model appeared in a music video for the singer’s song What’s Left Of Me.
The pair then tied the knot in June 2011, hosting the ceremony on Sir Richard Branson’s private Necker Island.
Their son Camden was then born in 2012, while they welcomed daughter Brooklyn in January just last year.
The couple then announced that they were expecting their third child in September, telling their fans in the best way.
