‘NCIS: Hawai’i’ Star Vanessa Lachey is Making Hearts Melt with Touching Happy Birthday Post to Son: ‘You are Magic’

NCIS: Hawai’i star Vanessa Lachey has a booked schedule while filming the new series, but she still has found the time to make our hearts melt with an adorable birthday post to her son. The actress has three children with her husband, Nick Lachey. The whole family moved to Hawai’i to make filming for the series possible.

The move looks to be going smoothly in the new post. The photo is adorable, but The NCIS: Hawai’i star warmed hearts with the sweet caption.

“My Sweet Boy… you are Magic and I’m so lucky you are mine,” she wrote. “Happy 9th Birthday, Cam. Mama LOVES you SOOO much. Sorry, I mean “Mom” now that you’re a big boy.”

Lachey and her husband made the difficult decision to relocate to Hawaii earlier this summer. Now, their son Cam and their other kids are taking on a brand new school. While it’s never easy, at least they get to do it in paradise.

Lachey will Play a Mom on ‘NCIS: Hawai’i’

NCIS: Hawai’i airs its first episode in just over a week, and fans are excited to see what the show will bring to the table. Lachey, whose the first woman to lead an NCIS franchise series, will play a Special Agent in charge as well as a single mother named Jane Tennant.

Tennant starts the series with a lot of struggles. She has to juggle her life as a single mother and her high-demand job with NCIS.

“She is a strong woman doing it all: running this team, raising two children, giving herself credit and respect everything she’s done to get here,” Lachey said in a video about the upcoming series. But Lachey has also mentioned that she’s in a majorly male-dominated career.

As a woman, Tennant had to fight really hard to get her powerful job, and the trailer spells trouble for how she’s treated in the role.

Thankfully, it looks like those important to her on her team will treat her with respect. According to TV Insider, showrunner Christopher Silber said that. “[Tennant and her team] are like a family. Sometimes there’s going to be arguing and bickering. [But] Jane sets a high bar and everyone falls in line.”

It does sound quite familiar to the dynamic on the flagship series, NCIS, which is moving to Mondays to air before NCIS: Hawai’i. That’ll likely give NCIS: Hawai’i a big leg up in the ratings as the show airs its first season.

NCIS: Hawai’i will air right after NCIS season 19 premieres on Monday, September 20th. The episode will follow Jane Tennant and her team as they investigate a mysterious crash on the island.
