As her son Camden John approaches his first birthday on Sept. 12, Vanessa Lachey is thinking about giving him a sibling.

“I look forward to expanding,” the actress, 32, said Thursday while promoting her new show Dads at Fox’s Television Critics Association summer press tour.

“We talked about three. I’ve always loved having a big family and truth be told, when I’m old and gray I’ll need a couple of them to take care of me!”

As for birthday party plans, Lachey has her hands full with bashes for both the men in her life.

“The same year I’m planning my son’s first birthday, I’m planning my husband’s 40th birthday!” she said with a laugh. “I’ve been [planning] both for the last month and I joked to my friend that I hope I don’t send Maker’s Mark [bourbon] to Camden’s birthday and streamers to Nick‘s birthday!”

And little Camden may be hitting a big milestone by the time he turns one, Lachey adds.

“He’s standing and two days ago he did his first shuffle holding onto something. I’m excited. I already dress him like my husband so I can’t wait to see him walking and looking like my husband!”
