If there's one regret Nick Lachey has, it certainly doesn't involve having kids with a very famous ex!

In a new interview on SiriusXM's radio show Dirty, Sexy, Funny with Jenny McCarthy, the former 98 Degrees star admits that not making babies with Jessica Simpson turned out to be a blessing in disguise.

"I think in our situation, that was probably the best thing that could have ever happened is that we didn't have kids," he told Jenny McCarthy. "All things being equal, it was the best thing probably for the both of us that we went on with our lives and she's obviously happily married with two [kids]. I'm happy married about to have two so it all worked out the way it was supposed to work out."

Simpson and Lachey chronicled part of their three-year marriage on MTV's popular series Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica. They would announce their split in November 2005.

While both parties have moved on with new partners, the former boy band member admits he's not close to his ex at all.

"I wouldn't say it's friends, but I wouldn't say it's enemies. There's just no contact," Lachey explained when asked about his relationship today. "We've both moved on with our lives and I think we're very happy with the way it went. It's not animosity, it's not friendship, it's just kind of nothing."

Today, Lachey is focused on being the best husband he can for Vanessa Lachey. As her due date quickly approaches, the singer is opening up about his life with a pregnant partner.

In true McCarthy fashion, the radio host had to ask how the sex is during pregnancy.

"You've got to get very creative with your positioning," he shared. "I'm not sure she's that comfortable right now honestly with much of anything including sex. It's just an uncomfortable time."

Lucky for Lachey, he was able to get it on with his wife this past weekend.

"Every now and then I campaign," he joked. "It was my birthday weekend this weekend so I did howl at the moon a couple of times."

Most of the time spent with his wife, however, is focused on helping her stay calm when trouble arises. That also includes agreeing with everything she says.

"It's whatever she says, goes. I've learned it the hard way," he explained. "The second time around, I'm much more passive with this whole process."

He added, "As a man, you also appreciate what your partner is going through and the transformation they're going through and all the stuff that comes with it. The least we could do is be agreeable."
