    Nick Lachey is getting hitched again.

    Nick Lachey is going to be a newlywed again.

    The former boy band singer turned reality star and host of NBC’s “The Sing Off,” will marry longtime girlfriend and TV presence Vanessa Minnillo, the couple announced on Thursday.

    "We're excited and incredibly happy about our engagement and we look forward to a wonderful future together," the pair told Us in a statement.

    Earlier Thursday, Lachey announced on his Twitter page that swirling engagement rumors were “absolutely true.”

    “Vanessa and I couldn't be happier. Thanks for all the love,” he tweeted.

    Lachey and Minnillo, the host of ABC’s “True Beauty,” began dating in 2006. They broke up briefly last summer before reuniting, according to reports.

    Lachey was previously married for three years to singer Jessica Simpson, with their relationship documented on the MTV reality show “Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica.”

    Don't count on a Lachey "Newlyweds" spin-off, PopEater notes.

    Minnillo said in an interview earlier this year that she had “no desire” to do a reality show.
