Congratulations to Nick and Vanessa Lachey! The duo has welcomed their second child, a daughter named Brooklyn Elisabeth Lachey on Monday, Jan. 5. The mother of two confirmed the news on her website today, saying the new bundle of joy weighed in at 7 pounds and 15 ounces and measured 21 inches long.

"I have been dreaming of this moment for as long as I can remember, the day I was going to meet my little girl," Vanessa wrote in the blog post. "A friend recently told me how magical today was going to be because it’s the day I would meet my best friend. I can’t even begin to tell you how it felt to hold her in my arms for the very first time,"

Brooklyn joins big brother Camden John, who is 2 years old. Congratulations to the growing family!
