Nick Lachey gave back this holiday season by performing for kids at Mattel Children's Hospital UCLA.
Accompanied by his guitarist Jay, Lachey, who recently turned 40, sang holiday favorites and songs from his album A Father's Lullaby in a playroom at the Los Angeles hospital on Friday.
For some children who were too ill to leave their rooms, Lachey put on scrubs and took the show to them and their parents, singing for the kids at their bedsides.
"The kids had the biggest smiles on their faces, and Nick was so touched by the strength of the children – there was not a dry eye in the room," an onlooker tells PEOPLE.
Vanessa Lachey was beaming all night while hanging out with hubby Nick at the opening party for Marquee – the Star, a nightclub in Sydney, Australia.
"She was literally glowing," a source says of the pregnant starlet, who also wore five-inch heels to the soiree. She and Lachey spent their evening dancing together and being generally affectionate – with Nick rubbing Vanessa's belly. They also chatted up Kellan Lutz and discussed how they're preparing for their baby's arrival.
Also at the party: Joe Jonas, Wilmer Valderrama and Ashlee Simpson, who spent the night hanging out with Minka Kelly – a recent companion of Valderrama's.
With a baby on the way, parents-to-be Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo decided to savor a night out at Tavern in Brentwood, Calif., over the weekend. The "super nice" pair joined another couple for dinner, and everyone listened as Minnillo talked about how wonderful her pregnancy has been. "She has this cute little belly," an onlooker tells PEOPLE.
