Christmas came early for Nick and Vanessa Lachey.

On Christmas Eve, the couple welcomed their third child, a boy named Phoenix Robert Lachey.

Vanessa announced the good news on Instagram.

"It's a very Merry Christmas indeed! We had our Christmas Miracle," she wrote next to a photo of the baby's hand on top of hers. "Phoenix Robert Lachey decided to show up early and was born on Christmas Eve. Mommy, Daddy, Camden & Brooklyn LOVE You very much! #LacheyPartyOf5"
