Funky Monkey! Vanessa Lachey Shares Hilarious Snap of Son Camden, 5, Channeling Beastie Boys


Camden John might join a boy band someday, but his path looks like it may be a little different from his dad’s.

The adorable 5-year-old son of 98 Degrees frontman Nick Lachey and wife Vanessa looked like the next Beastie Boys member in a photo his mama shared to her Instagram account Tuesday.

Looking quite the edgy youngster in a gold chain, skull necklace and red baseball cap, Camden threw up a peace sign and pursed his lips for the full Mike D, Ad-Rock and Adam Yauch effect.

“Brass Monkey, that funky Monkey / Brass Monkey junkie, that funky Monkey!”   #MyVeryOwnBeastieBoy,” Vanessa captioned the cute moment.

The couple chatted with PEOPLE in January about whether they are open to further grow their family of five, which also includes Phoenix Robert, 13 months, and Brooklyn Elisabeth, 3.

“We feel very complete, but that being said … we just love children and we love having a big family,” said Vanessa, 37.

“We’re both content, but if for some crazy reason it were to happen, we wouldn’t be devastated,” explains the Dancing with the Stars alum. “It would be like, ‘All right, here we go again.’ ”

Nick, 44, agreed wholeheartedly with his wife’s assessment, giving “a 100 percent yes” affirmation when Vanessa remarked, “By four, I can imagine it’s chaos.”

“And then we’re probably forgetting one of them,” she joked. “We’d be like, ‘Where’s Phoenix? Who put the baby down?’ “
