The actress celebrated her new role with some family fun in the sun

Life is picture perfect for Vanessa Lachey.

The actress celebrated her new TV show, People Are Talking, by clinking bottles with her husband in an adorable family photo posted Tuesday to her Instagram.

Standing in thigh-deep water, Vanessa cradles a shaded Brooklyn Elisabeth, 5 months, while Nick holds 2½-year-old Camden John — who looks super cool (and matches Dad!) in a pair of sunglasses.

“Cheers! With my family celebrating my new T.V. family #PeopleAreTalking!” Vanessa, 34, captioned the snap. “I am so excited to be joining #NBC this fall to keep you all laughing every Friday night!”

Although the day to day continues to be crazy for the Lacheys, Vanessa couldn’t be happier with how everything has fallen into place in both her personal and professional lives.

“It does feel like the day becomes more hectic, but in all the best ways and in every way that I wanted it to become because I always wanted to be a mother and I always wanted to be a wife and I’ve always wanted a family,” she recently told PEOPLE.

“So while it is a juggle and it is chaotic, it’s my chaos and at the end of the day, it’s what makes my world go round.”
