Some happy news to offset the recent announcement that Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony have split: Longtime lovebirds Vanessa Minnillo and Nick Lachey officially tied the knot Friday evening (July 15) on a tropical island in front of 35 friends and family."For us, this is just a stepping stone to do what we ultimately want and that's to start a family together," Minnillo told People magazine.According to both of them, the break up was simply the result of being too young and because both of their careers were blowing up. They had been dating since Jessica was 19-years-old so she had a lot of growing up to do whereas Nick was much more comfortable with where he was.
"It's not a sexual thing and it's not a romantic thing," she told People. Share your well-wishes for the newlyweds in the comments below!
