You can bet Nick Lachey was excited to mark his 34th

birthday on Nov. 9. That’s not just because he shares it with girlfriend

Vanessa Minnillo, who turned 27, but also because it capped a rebirth of sorts.

“2007 has been a rebuilding year for me... music, studio, learning things about

who I am as a man,” Nick tells Extra at his restaurant Company American Bistro’s

grand opening on Wednesday, where he and Vanessa celebrate their birthdays. “I

think it’s exciting. Any time you learn

and grow it’s an exciting time.”

Not to mention, it was much better than what he went through last year, when his

divorce with Jessica Simpson was finalized. “I don’t think you can get much

worse than the year before 2006. The last year has been good... been in the

studio working on a new album. I’m

excited to get that out in 2008.”

It will be the former boy bander’s third solo album. His

second, What’s Left of Me, was released last year and featured heartbroken

tunes no doubt inspired by his very public split.

“There have been some great albums that come out of

heartbreaking times… my last album,” Nick says.

So now that he's in a different place in his life, can we expect happier numbers? Most likely.

“As an artist, it’s our responsibility to draw on whatever we are

going through.”
