The pregnancy rumors won't go away for Nicole Richie.
At first, gossip skeptics were weary and blamed a full main meal for the reason Nicole looked a little rounder in her stomach. However, as the weeks have passed, the pitter-patter of tiny feet has gotten louder.
Now, paparazzi photographers are confirming the pregnancy, saying that Nicole is looking healthy and happy.
One snapper, from Celebrity Babylon, said, "She looks healthy! She's got that little rounded belly too."
Nicole has been dating Good Charlotte frontman Joel Madden since the end of 2006. Engagement reports have been escalating alongside the pregnancy whispers.
The socialite was previously engaged to celeb spinner, DJ AM. Joel, meanwhile, was in a two-year relationship with pop star Hilary Duff.
Both Nicole and Joel have yet to deny the engagement and pregnancy rumors.
