Los Angeles: Singer Nick Lachey has revealed that he is lucky that he did not have kids with ex-wife Jessica Simpson.
Lachey, 41, split from the singer-fashion designer in 2005 after three years of marriage, reported Us magazine.
"In our situation, that was probably the best thing that could have ever happened that we didn't have kids. And look, you're always going to love your kids no matter how you feel about their other parent, but all things being equal, it was the best thing probably for both of us that we went on with our lives.
"She's obviously happily married with two and I'm happily married and about to have two so it all worked out the way it was kind of meant to work out," he added.
The former 'Newlyweds' stars are not in touch with each other. "She and I don't necessarily stay in each others lives. I wouldn't say it's friends and I wouldn't say it's enemies ? there is just no contact. We both moved on with our lives... It's not animosity, it's not friendship, it's just kind of nothing."
