The Lacheys, who competed on Dancing with the Stars, recently celebrated their son’s Pheonix’s first birthday on Christmas Eve. The tot’s Christmas Eve milestone was a lot earlier than expected as he was born 10 weeks premature in 2016.
Speaking with PEOPLE Now alongside his bandmates, Nick revealed that he is dedicated to making Phoenix feel special on his birthday as he grows up.
“We’ll figure it out — as he gets older, we’ll have to make sure we carve out a special day for him so he doesn’t feel like it’s just swallowed up with Christmas,” he said.
