If Vanessa Lachey (née Minnillo) ends up with a girl, this could end up being a slightly awkward entry in her baby journal.

In any case, Nick Lachey's pregnant wife revealed on Twitter last night that she did actually have a preference as to what her first born may turn out to be, and you might as well start stockpiling the blue goods now: She's hoping for a boy!

"I'm excited either way!" the mama-to-be tweeted in response to a follower's question asking if she'd prefer a boy or a girl after she posted a photo of a gender prediction test.

"But I always wanted a boy 1st. Just a healthy baby."

And just so there wasn't any confusion, she quickly clarified her tweet: "#ToBeClear @NickSLachey & I are praying for a healthy baby First & Foremost! I just always envisioned a boy 1st to take care of his siblings."

And that's not to say that she wouldn't be just as thrilled with a baby girl, mind you, as that, too, would have its advantages.

"But a baby girl would be just as much of a blessing...and she'd have @NickSLachey wrapped around her finger! Haha!"

Vanessa also said that while they haven't yet found out what they're having, they'll be prepared either way, having already decided on a name should they have a daughter, though are "still working on the boys name."

They've still got some time. The 31-year-old only announced her pregnancy earlier this month and isn't due until late summer or early fall.
