Vanessa Minnillo's given up her MTV-made-famous last name -- she's Mrs. Lachey now -- and is ready to get down to business when it comes to making a family.

"I like it, I like it," Vanessa says about her new name. "First and foremost to me is family and that includes my husband and it's what you do. I do love my work and what I do but Nick is more important to me than anything in this world -- soon my children will be the second most important thing to me."

Nick would have understood if his second wife wanted to keep the name she worked so hard to establish, as his ex-wife Jessica Simpson did, but loves that Vanessa decided to go with Lachey.

"How can you say no to those dimples and baby blues?" said Vanessa. "[Babies are] the next natural step. But, God willing, it will happen. It's not a pressure situation. ... The great thing is we have been together for almost six years -- five before we got married -- and now it's just enjoying being a newlywed and you never know. It's what we like to call in the newlywed world 'fun time.' So if that is family planning, so be it."

Let the bump-watch begin!
