Vanessa Lachey is quite the busy woman lately. The first season of her latest series, the NCIS spinoff NCIS Hawaii wrapped up just this spring to rave reviews. She has also joined longtime husband Nick Lachey as host of a popular Netflix series, Love Is Blind. A reality series that found massive success since its premiere in the winter of 2020.

The popular streaming series is best described as a dating series with a twist. Couples begin dating, however, they can’t see each other. They are only allowed to talk to each other. A unique premise, for sure, but one that is a win as Netflix has already picked up the series for two more seasons. And, the success of the series is even more palpable now after receiving some big nominations earlier this month.

“Pop the champagne,” Vanessa Lachey exclaims in a recent Twitter post announcing the Love Is Blind Emmy nomination. The NCIS: Hawaii star adds an emoji featuring two champagne glasses in the middle of a toast.

“#LoveIsBlind is EMMY NOMINATED!” the TV star exclaims adding a “WooHoo,” with a celebratory confetti emoji.

“Congrats to the entire @Netflix and @KineticContent team,” Vanessa Lachey continues in her July 12 post. “and ALL the other nominees!”
