Nicole Richie: I'm Four Months Pregnant

Nicole Richie confirms for the first time she is four months pregnant with Good Charlotte frontman Joel Madden‘s baby!

“Yes, I am. We are. I’m almost four months,” Nicole tells ABC News’ Diane Sawyer.

“I have a responsibility and it’s something that I did wrong, and if I could personally apologize to every single person that has lost a loved one from drunk driving I would,” Nicole added about her recent DUI guilty plea. “And unfortunately I can’t, but this is my way of paying my dues and taking responsibility and being an adult.”

Watch Nicole‘s full interview on Good Morning America” Thursday, Aug. 2 and Friday, Aug. 3, and on 20/20 Friday night.

    “And unfortunately I can’t, but this is my way of paying my dues and taking responsibility and being an adult.”

    So getting knocked up is showing how much of an adult she is…?


    Oh boy, I can’t wait until the kid is 3 and starts doing drugs, drinking, and spending lots of money. Plus im sure they will give him/her a nice, 1 year old birthday tattoo! TRASSSSHHHYYY!

  • HOw SAD!

    SAD, SAD, SAD! NO HOPE for that little one- NO HOPE at all!

  • lena

    hopefully a baby will deter from acting like a jack a**. I never feel sorry for people who willingly get in a car and endanger other people’s lives like that, personally i think she should’ve gotten a stiffer jail sentence, she was high at the time and drunk

  • luve her!

    Congrats now I believe it.Go DO YOUr time now and take care of that baby.

  • Barbara

    No Sarah, not just getting knocked up but getting knocked up by a guy she just met and during the time she was drinking, using drugs and not eating sensibly. How responsible is that? It will be a miracle if this baby is born healthy.

  • Herplex never said im sorry

    Great that she owns up to her huge mistake. I hope she means it. Its more than herplex said she went on vacation. No mre eating disorder take life seriously.Life is short.

  • Tucker

    wow, I actually didnt believe it
    that baby is going to be fucked up, but I hope not

  • Sarah

    Exactly Barbara…and to think Hilary Duff was with the same guy several months ago. He meets this mess and gets her pregnant. I think Duff had a lucky escape.

    Since she has come out of the closet with this news, she also needs to understand that not only drinking and driving could have hurt or killed someone including herself, but she also now has a baby to think about and doesn’t need to be drinking at all. I really like Nicole and grew up with her Dad’s music so my best wishes go out to her and the new baby along with prayers that she can ditch the drinking problem and not hurt herself or the baby. I think she is a gorgeous person inside and out. Sincerely, Kim in KY



  • Llike her alot

    Nicole I’m glad you beat TM-SLEAZE to the punch. I feel you have chang and I hope your baby is born healthy, it’s up to you. Now just try and stay away from the public,even though they will be hiding in the bushes, so they can’t sell their tabs or get hits at your expense. Many good wishes for your baby.

  • Lo

  • haters cant resist nick luv ya

    ‘Huff’ has the ‘I’m just to good 4 every body’.Goody-goody attitude,works for 10 yr olds not adults.
    Go Nicole I got your back gurl.Haters why post?

  • Dirty Cougar

    Goddamm her! She’s not even showing! F@ck! I was already shpwing @ 2 months along! It’s allright. You never know I had Junior that, is 11 years old now!

  • pamela

    I support her 110%!! Yep, she is right, gotta go to jail for your crime. Just please don’t scr/ew up again!!I’m liking what you have said and the’Im Sorry’ was correct..Take care of that baby and your health.’Congrats’.Oh and it’s about baby,you and what you do from here on end. Stay away from poison you know who I mean.

  • Pam

    At least she’s taking responsibility for her actions. Hopefully she’ll take care of herself and the baby.

    She looks pretty good in that cute outfit with decent clean hair.

  • Opal

    I really like Nicole and in spite of all the mistakes she’s made I believe she can change and turn her life around for the better. She has to, especially now. I wish her and Joel all the best.


    Why i believe this baby will end up like Britney’s sons?God help him/her

  • mickey

    I feel sorry for the child because she is a dolt.

    What I don’t understand is why Diane Sawyer is interviewing Nicole Richie. What does she do besides drive the wrong way on the freeway? Do we really need an interview to say that she got knocked up? I don’t know anything about that guy who is the father except that he is in some band and used to date Hillary Duff, but he is a big “Who cares” too. I think if Billy Bush or Mary Hart wants to interview Nicole Richie, that makes sense because their shows are about fluff, but Diane Sawyer and ABC News should aim MUCH higher.

    STFU! I love her and with Gawd’s help and she takes care of herself she should be fine..Don’t wish bad things on an unborn baby, you are gross do you like anyone??And what do you say is wrong with BS’s kids?

  • Diana

    Maybe now she should stop hiding behind bags.

    They make a weird couple … uhmmm.

  • Maureen

    Hilary is prettier! Nicole and Joel both have drg DNA and the child will not be healthy it’s so gross

  • Fionna

    wow! she is so pretty, good luck to them.

  • connie

    Nicky looks so pretty but she always does.
    Much Love to you and the baby.

  • Jeannette

    Wow her baby will be soo pretty. I will tivo this. I hope they leave her alone when she goes to the pokey. She is one of my favorites. And she plays her piano like a classic,I heard her on ‘Oprah’.

  • Helen

    The baby will be so strange looking, why are you all saying it will be cute? Madden is not good looking at all, and who knows if Nicole will eat enough to be able to give the baby the nutrition it needs!

  • jessica

    I just luv Nicole Richee.No real reason,I just do.Thats the right thing to do apoloize and serve her time. She is a good person and at her age and pregnant being a adult is a must.

  • blahhhhh

    She needs to EAT! this baby will not make it out healthy if she dosn’t take care of herself and the baby.

  • G

    Good Luck Nicole!

  • heather

    She better be eating and I know she is. Baby is number #1 priority.We who like you will be following your progress so baby first, proper eating and over all health is number one. If I don’t hear it from her mouth, I won’t believe the tabs hype.

  • Tealeaf

    I wish the baby well, but seriously she hasn’t known Tool Madden that long,why does she deserve a Diane Sawyer interview…she isn’t a talented or well-respected celeb..Intouch weekly would of been enough for a official statement,Also I hope she actuallys eats now, I wonder how long the relationship well last. Looks like she is trying to copying Angelina.

  • Rockstar

    I feel sorry for her baby…that’s all I have to say.

  • SO NOT SO!!!!!!


  • i like posh/angie/nicole

    I think she will do fine,she always wanted a family. I luv her an Angie & don’t see the connection. In touch puleeese,maybe People. Dianne Sawyer interviews people who continually burp???,so why not Nicole.If she did’nt sell and some sicko people who wished her bad things/and some who wished her well the paps would’nt cover her.If they stop covering her you would’nt know about her,so people should call/write them. She is talented google her. TMz has been blowing her all over there site forever. Well we shall see.In the meantime I wish her well like others who post becuz they like her.

  • Alexanderina

    Good luck to Nicole and Joel. I am glad that she is taking responsibility for her actions, good for her. Wishing her nothing but the best

  • Dirty Denise

    Nicole is pretty. The baby will be a little doll.
    Good luck Nicole.

  • Mary

    Oh gosh, I was hoping she wasn’t really pregnant! Jeez….

  • KrungKrung

    i knew it y’all, i hope she’ll eat cuz if not, that baby of hers will be super sickly and not healthy, ohmigod….

  • Sexy Mama

    It is totally unacceptable that being pregnant can delay one’s jail time. Nicole doesn’t seem equipped, both physically and psychologically to take care of this child anyway, nor does her husband. I guess we have to leave this up to the authorities.

  • terran

    We don’t know if she is equipped or not, what are we going by tabs?
    Let her do her bizwax, when and if she messes up then we will know, at least their version. Let’s see til then. Courts decided that’s their choice not her’s.

  • uhu

    Good luck to the both of them. Hope the baby is pretty and healthy and happy!

  • jolie-pitt fan

    A baby! Congrats and ‘I luv her.’I think she will be a great mommy and the baby with good nutrition and blessings from a higher power will be born healthy.

  • Bliss

    She’s full of bull. It’s an act. Ofcourse she’s going to say she’s sorry, when it’s being recorded for television. What else would you expect her to say? She’s an admitted junkie, and she went for soem help. Then she got not one, but two DUIs, between which she has gotten thinner and thinner.

    She is fake, just like everyone else in the business. I personally believe she has an eating disorder, she needs to fix it, people that care for her have to intervene, or the consequences are going to be too great.

    I don’t wish nyone harm, but I also don’t have respect for her. May I ask, what has been her contribution to society, and please don’t say the ‘Simple Life’.

  • wow

    I know a kid who is 20-a junior in college-working her way all by herself to pay for it/does not smoke/does not party/has never drank/responsible/self-sufficient/works like a woman on a mission/does not want to date because she says she only gets one chance to do well-

    Her entire education costs less than the shopping sprees those celebs go on! Yet, they deserve all of this air time and print time-she is struggling/her scholarship is only 50%/something is wrong with this picture-besides that Oprah would rather spend 50million to build her school in a another country than to really take the time to fund education here/it’s her money/something is so wrong with our country

  • wow

    this baby was soo was accident! crack baby!

  • http://GPost Team Lara Croft

    God I know women (educated, hard working, well established, good morals) who try for years to get pregnant yet these girls, Britney, Nicole etc get knocked up in a second. And they are hardly ready I think (besides having lots of money). Life can be unfair I guess.
