The couple revealed on Wednesday that they were expecting a son, after the 31-year-old mom-to-be announced on her website:

    "Nick and I are incredibly excited to share the news that we are expecting a baby boy. We can't wait to meet him soon!"

Vanessa's wish has been granted, because the former beauty queen revealed on Twitter in March after discovering she was preg: "I'm excited either way! But I always wanted a boy first. Just a healthy baby."

The happy couple, who wed in July 2011, recently returned from a babymoon at Jade Mountain in St. Lucia, where Nick shared a sexy Twitpic of his preg wife, who is due in September.
