Nick Lachey was apparently not on Jessica Simpson's "It's a Boy!" announcement mailing list.

Asked if he had spoken to his ex-wife since the birth of her second child, son Ace Knute Johnson, on June 30, Lachey admitted that he had not—but he hopes all is well!

"Nope, no. We're not in touch," the host of The Winner Is told E! News at the NYC launch of Wendy's #PretzelLoveSongs campaign in honor of the chain's new Pretzel Bacon Cheeseburger.

"I certainly wish her the best and I would like to think the same on her end, but we don't speak," Lachey said. "We haven't spoken in years."

The remarried dad, who welcomed son Camden with wife Vanessa Lachey last September, said in May on Watch What Happens: Live that it had been "probably six years" since he and Simpson had seen each other. The former Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica costars divorced in 2006.

"It's like another lifetime ago," Lachey said on the Bravo show, referring to his first marriage. "We don't sit around as a family and watch the old DVDs!"
