Vanessa Lachey Responds to Tweet Questioning Why Her Daughter Looks Like Jessica Simpson

Vanessa Lachey is taking the high road in 2019. The Top Chef Junior host had the classiest response when a Twitter user compared her daughter, Brooklyn, to her husband Nick Lachey’s ex-wife, Jessica Simpson.

A fan named Kimberly wrote in a since-deleted tweet on Monday, December 31: “Ok… elephant in the room… but why does Nick and Vanessa Lachey’s daughter look like Jessica Simpson?” Soon after, Vanessa, 38, responded, “2019, new year, new outlook. Let’s be positive, especially with our children. Thanks Kimberly. Happy New Year.”

Vanessa and Nick, 45, tied the knot in 2011 and are the parents of three children: sons Camden, 6, and Phoenix, 2, and daughter Brooklyn, who turns 4 on Saturday, January 5. The couple’s little girl is blonde like Simpson, while their sons both have brown hair.
