Vanessa Lachey has revealed that husband Nick Lachey has begun "nesting" in preparation for parenthood.

The couple, who married in July 2011, announced last month that they are expecting their first child.

In an interview with Parade, Vanessa confessed that she has been focusing much of her energy on work but is surprised to see that Nick has already begun to prepare for their new arrival.

"I have [been nesting] in my mind but I've been a little consumed with work. But the interesting thing I've noticed is my husband is nesting. I always thought it was the woman but he's doing his little nesting part too," she explained.

"He saw this old table we have and he sanded it, then he stained it, put glass on it. He made us a desk! It was pretty incredible. Now I feel guilty so I think because of that I tried to put the stroller together the other day. But we have a good amount of time to prepare."

Vanessa went on to insist that while she tries not to be too strict with herself, she wants to avoid giving in to too many pregnancy cravings, adding: "I think it's important to let yourself indulge but what I eat, what I put into my body, goes directly to my baby. It makes you think, 'Do I really want to get that Snickers bar snack or do I want to get a bowl of fruit?'

"So then I go for the fruit and the antioxidants. But of course I'm human and after we went out to dinner last night, I had a bowl of ice cream. After the baby is born, I still want to have me. I don't want to start at ground zero to try and get back to that."
