More sources are confirming that the most unlikely starlet in Hollywood is pregnant.
Us Weekly has joined the mounting publications revealing that Nicole Richie is over three months pregnant with her first child.
Despite her scarily thin frame, the news is shocking because of recent rumors surrounding the starlet. One week it was reported that she was suffering from anorexia and checking into rehab, the next week claims surfaced that she had a drug addiction. In reality, the star drove the wrong way down a Los Angeles highway and admitted to taking vicodin and smoking marijuana.
Unlike most mothers-to-be, Nicole will face court during her second trimester and argue her case about staying out of prison because of her DUI charge. The December 2006 incident is a second offense for "The Simple Life" star.
Nicole joins other Hollywood girls who have welcomed motherhood at a young age. Britney Spears, Reese Witherspoon and Nelly Furtado have all become mothers in their early twenties.
A source told Us Weekly, "She is extremely excited right now."
Nicole and her boyfriend Joel Madden will reportedly make their relationship even more official with a wedding - the Good Charlotte front man just has to buy the engagement ring first. The magazine reported that Joel recently took his twin brother Benji shopping for the rock.
Nicole, 25, has been engaged before - to celebrity spinner DJ AM. Both Madden boys are settling down. Joel ended his two-year relationship with 19-year-old Hilary Duff before hooking up with Nicole in late 2006 and Benji is preparing a wedding with Australian actress Sophie Monk.
A Madden family source said, "Everyone's happy, everyone's good, everyone's getting along."
At the time of her DUI arrest, Nicole weighed a worrying 83 pounds. Now that she is pregnant, hopefully her approach to food will change.
