Vanessa Lachey is looking back at her own personal journey.
The co-host of Netflix's The Ultimatum—who serves at the helm of the show alongside husband Nick Lachey—became emotional as she reflected on being able to open up to a partner during an episode from the show's second season.
While discussing a participant's hesitancy to be vulnerable, Vanessa detailed how her own experience with therapy helped her relationship for the better.
"Nick and I have been together for 16 years and we know each other—married for 11—but it's so funny that for some reason we don't learn more about each other until we're in, like, a therapy session," she shared during the sixth episode. "And the reason why I'm choking up is because I've had to get through so much s--t to be the best woman for him."
"Every single issue we had, every issue I brought up—to find that person, that I can trust and that can carry me through," she continued, "is what made us unstoppable."
In fact, the TV host noted that it was "so freeing to tell everything" to someone who would "be there to pick you up."
"It's really beautiful," she shared. "And if they don't, which I've had other guys who have done that—they're not the guy I married."
This intense second season follows five couples as they decide whether they're ready to walk down the aisle or walk away from their partner for good altogether. In addition to Vanessa and Nick, keep reading to for everything you need to know about the season two cast.
