"I've been told -- because that's what happens now, I'm told things -- that it's going to be a waist-up situation, if you know what I mean," says Lachey.

"I'm gonna be there, I'm gonna be supportively there, holding hands, and coaching, breathing, all that good stuff," he continued. "But apparently I won't be down below, seeing what's happening. I'll be up above, helping."

Lachey also recounted his experience taping the birth of a close friend's child.

"I won't be asking him to return the favor," says Lachey.
