"You have to keep it spontaneous--surprise dinners, flowers, concerts," Nick, 40, told ABC News. "They all make a difference."
The 98 Degrees boy-bander (boy bands are forever, they just have dormant periods) and his wife, 33, both have busy work schedules. Nick begins his gig as host of VH1's Big Morning Buzz next month, and Vanessa has a regular role on the Fox comedy Dads.
But Nick and Vanessa, who've been married since 2011, still manage to make each other a priority every day. "Our time together is after we put Camden down for the night," he said. "So much of the rest of our day is dedicated to him and work, but we always make sure to share a glass of wine and some time together at the end of our day."
Aww! So just what will Mr. and Mrs. Lachey be doing for Valentine's Day? "We are going to celebrate this year by taking a little romantic getaway together," Nick told ABC News. "Always nice to spend a weekend away from the hustle and bustle and enjoy each other."
