Vanessa Minnillo knows how to stay connected to her man.
The True Beauty host, 29, reveals to Parade that showering twice a day with her beau of four years, Nick Lachey, 36, gives them time for “intimate conversations.”
“We shower in the morning and we shower at some point during the day or before bed. We both have our own showerheads so we just talk while we’re soaping up and doing our hair,” Minnillo tells the magazine.
She adds: “It’s not a sexual thing and it’s not a romantic thing, it just becomes an intimate thing … I’ve had some of my most intimate conversations with him in the shower.”
