It’s been more than a decade since Nick Lachey first laid eyes on TRL host Vanessa Minnillo while still married to ex-wife Jessica Simpson, but a lot has happened since then, with the pair going on to wed in 2011 and welcoming Camden, Brooklyn and Phoenix.

Scroll through to relive their relationship journey, from Vanessa’s appearance in the 98 Degrees singer’s 2006 music video for “What’s Left of Me” to their brief split and romantic walk down the aisle.

Though Nick and Vanessa first met during one of the singer’s many appearances on TRL, which she hosted from 2003 to 2007, things began to get romantic for the pair when Vanessa starred in Nick’s video for “What’s Left of Me.” They could be seen flirting in the MTV Making the Video episode that aired for the mini movie in April 2006, five months after he split with Simpson. “How do we rehearse? Do we go to your trailer?” she joked, to which the pop star replied, “I think we just kinda have to do what they call ‘improv.’ Wing it. I don’t think there’s rehearsal time.” Vanessa later admitted to the camera, “He’s a gem — mini-crush.”
