Vanessa Lachey Reveals How Embracing Her Parenthood 'Daily Fails' Has Made Her a Better Mother - New  Vanessa Lachey wants to make one thing clear: Parenthood is far from perfect, but that’s what makes it a “beautiful mess.”  As a mother of three to Phoenix Robert, 2, Brooklyn Elisabeth, 4, and Camden John, 6½, Vanessa knows that raising her children with husband Nick Lachey doesn’t always go according to plan.

On top of that, the pair also balance their own jobs — Nick, as a touring member of 98 Degrees, and Vanessa, as a current host on Top Chef Junior.  Things may get chaotic and busy, and can sometimes lead to inevitable parenting failures, but Vanessa knows it all comes with the territory — something she’s perfectly accepting of.  “We all have fails daily and that’s okay.

We are all struggling with the same feeling of inadequacy as a parent,” Vanessa explains, adding, “Failure is life, but it doesn’t mean you’re doing it wrong.”  Part of the reason that Vanessa says she and other moms tend to find it difficult to embrace their failures is because of
