The actress and host, 34, stepped out on Saturday to celebrate Dr. Michele Hakakha‘s book, Expecting411: Clear Answers & Smart Advice for Your Pregnancy.
When asked what makes Dr. Hakakha the pregnancy whisperer, Lachey didn’t hesitate. “She makes you feel like such an amazing, confident, wonderful woman,” she told PEOPLE at the event in Beverly Hills.
“She talks to you like a girlfriend, but she’s also a very knowledgeable doctor.”
“It’s changed my priorities and it changed everything for the better,” she says. “Everything now is about my kids and my family.”
Brooklyn Elisabeth, who was born in January, is already stealing her mom’s heart — with her sweet grin. “She’s starting to do the facial recognition, the smile, and it’s killing me,” Lachey shares. “I say, ‘Hi Brooklyn,’ and she smiles back and I love it. I love it because I know she knows she sees me.”
With two adorable children already, will the Lachey brood continue to expand? “Never know,” she teases.
