Nick Lachey Gushes About Fatherhood, New Son Camden

New dad Nick Lachey has fallen face first into fatherhood ... and not in a bad way!

The "Stars Earn Stripes" star took to Twitter for the first time since welcoming his son Camden John with wife Vanessa on Sept. 12 to confess that he's "officially in cheesy dad mode."

"Camden is easily the most amazing thing that has happened in my life," the 38-year-old tweeted on Monday afternoon. "@VanessaLachey and i are truly blessed!"

First-time parents Nick and Vanessa have been smitten with Camden from the minute they laid eyes on him, telling People in a statement last week, "Love has truly been redefined for the both of us."

The couple has yet to release a photo of their baby boy, but there's no doubt he's adorable!
