Back in 2021, Vanessa and her husband Nick first revealed that they'd made the decision to sell their home in Los Angeles and relocate to Hawaii. Speaking to Travel + Leisure in March 2022, the mum-of-three explained that after spending two weeks flying back and forth to film NCIS: Hawai'i, she realised that they needed to make a big decision.

"We thought we were going to do a Hawaii to L.A. 'travel-on-the-weekend' thing," Vanessa said. "We sold our house and now we've got Hawaii license plates!"

Speaking about their new life in O'ahu, she added: "This is the most beautiful place I've ever been emotionally. There's a magic. When you live here and are surrounded by the loving people…you can't help but feel it and get moved by it."

Since relocating to Hawaii in 2021, the family couldn't be happier

As for her husband's initial reaction to the move, Vanessa opened up about how supportive and positive Nick had been. Speaking to ET, the NCIS star said:

"It was a talk that I had with my husband and I said, 'What do you think?' and...he's like, 'Hawaii, umm, it could be worse.' And he was like, 'This is awesome!' And I'll never forget him saying, 'This is your time and you've been there in the past for me.'" 

Vanessa previously revealed that her husband Nick was extremely supportive about the big move

Vanessa also spoke about her children's delight at the news: "I told the kids and they were gung ho because they think that Hawaii is water slides, play," she said. "I ask them all the time, 'Are you happy or no?' And they're like, yeah! So they're very happy here, they love it here. They're island babies. I didn't even realize I had island babies until I brought them here."
