Nick Lachey and Vanessa Lachey just proved that six years into their marriage, their love for each other is as strong (and dirty) as ever. The former boy-bander just shared a photo of the contents of his family's trash can to Instagram. Amongst the dirty diapers, pet hair, paper scraps, and other cringeworthy crap? Vanessa's wedding ring. Oops.
"This is true love after 6 years of marriage......digging through dirty diapers and trash to find your wife's missing wedding ring!! #success," he captioned the shot. The photo reveals that Vanessa's wedding band is encircled with diamonds, in either a silver or white gold setting (as well as some crumbs).
Vanessa and Nick got hitched at a destination wedding back in 2011, surprising their guests with plane tickets. (The whole affair later aired in a TLC special entitled Nick & Vanessa's Dream Wedding.) And ever since then, the couple has been finding ways to keep things fresh (besides digging though the garbage). "You always have to keep it spontaneous—surprise dinners, flowers, concerts," Nick Lachey told ABC in 2014. "They all make a difference."
The Lacheys have three children together — and they take advantage of the time when their kids are asleep to connect with each other. "Our time together is after we put Camden down for the night," Lachey also told ABC at the time, referring to their oldest son. "So much of the rest of our day is dedicated to him and work, but we always make sure to share a glass of wine and some time together at the end of our day."
And if you find yourself in a situation similar to Nick and Vanessa's make sure to do these key things as soon as you realize your ring is missing, including filing an insurance claim, talking to the store that sold it about recreation possibilities, and getting a temporary ring in the meantime, in case it does turn up.
