Nicole Richie and Joel Madden are expecting another child, barely one year after the arrival of adorable daughter Harlow Madden (born January 11, 2008).

In a message on the official site of his band Good Charlotte, Madden said:

"I am so happy to tell everyone that Harlow is going to be a big sister! God has truly blessed my family. Hope [you're] all feeling as good as I am right now."

Madden's message is titled "Better than winning an OSCAR!" Hard to argue with him after seeing those adorable Harlow pictures from the other day!

After a famously wild childhood, Nicole Richie has credited the birth of daughter Harlow for leading her to a more tranquil life at home with Joel.

"She gives life a whole new meaning," the 27-year-old said of her baby girl.

Congratulations to the happy couple! Click to enlarge more photos:

Princess, Schmincess. Suri Cruise may be cute, but she's got some new competition for her title of cutest celebrity baby around. The challenger: Harlow Madden!

After Nicole Richie and her baby daughter were seen out and about in New York City this week, the celebrity gossip world's reaction could only be this: Awwww!

Everybody Together: Awww!

Harlow sure makes her mom smile - and has had a positive effect on her life in other ways, as well! Click to enlarge more photos of the two women in Joel Madden's life:

Sorry, Gossip Girl fans.

Nicole Richie won't be joining the cast of the CW's hip teen dram anytime soon. Her rep says it's "not true" she's planning to guest star.

Rumors began after the New York Daily News reported Wednesday that Richie "loves Gossip Girl and she wants a really b---hy, juicy role."

Although the part wouldn't have been a stretch - Richie played a bully on NBC's Chuck earlier this season - she's currently focusing on her new jewelry line, called (in a cute reference to her baby daughter), House of Harlow.

NO GOSSIP, GIRL: Nicole Richie is just plain happy - and healthier - these days!

If we've learned anything in two and a half years in this biz, it's that the celebrity news world is chock full of DUI arrests, plastic surgery and best of all, eating disorders. Stars binge and purge - or just starve themselves - like mad.

Well, we're happy to present a rare success story - a young celebrity who, in the not-so-distant past, was fast approaching refugee status, but who has since filled out to the point where she actually looks good in a bikini.

Take a look at the comparison of Nicole Richie now and 28 months ago (TMZ put this together). It's amazing what a steady relationship (with Joel Madden), a baby (Harlow) and eating regularly will do for a girl's figure. 

Keep up the good work, Nicole! And give Kate Bosworth a call ...

Nicole Richie bikini pics, then and now. We'll take the 12/08 model, thanks.

Today is Christmas, but for many of the stars we know and love, the best present ever came earlier this year. We are talking, of course, about celebrity babies!

Here's a delightful photo sure to put you in the holiday spirit. Check out this poignant moment with Jessica Alba, Cash Warren and their daughter, Honor ...

Jessica and Cash are just two of the new parents of 2008, of course.

Jamie Lynn Spears became America's hottest unwed teen mom when she welcomed little Maddie Briann (below, left). Bristol Palin may compete for that title, but hasn't given birth quite yet - though Sarah Palin welcomed baby Trig in April!

Elsewhere, Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves pooled their remarkable genes and created Levi, while many big stars, such as Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Lopez, Halle Berry, Nicole Richie and Nicole Kidman, became first-time mothers.

There's no way this actually happened.

Not only does Star Magazine have a penchant for absolutely bogus covers (see Britney and Kevin 2004 file photo turned 2008 romantic getaway), but if the event described below really took place, every publication in Hollywood would know it.

Moreover, the tabloid's claim that Nicole Richie packed her bags after a bitter fight with Joel Madden and left him with their daughter in tow is undercut within the article ... by the supposed "fact" that she returned a day after the supposed fight.

So, if you went to investigate the accuracy of this story, you'd learn she's - lo and behold - still living there, making it hard to disprove. How convenient, Star.

This magazine cover is therefore only notable for a cute picture of Harlow Madden. Which is nice at least. Aww. Now that's one cute celebrity baby ...

The article also claims that Joel was indeed "caught" with Mischa Barton (who just broke up with Taylor Locke) ... at the same party. For shame, Joel.

... you know. Both are kinda cute. Neither is super hot. Both are on the celebrity fashion police's most wanted list. Neither enjoys a nice meal. If you were given a choice between Nicole Richie or Mary-Kate Olsen, tell us...

Who would you rather ...

These four troubled young women have more than just seductive celebrity mug shots in common - they actually served time for their DUI-related antics!

Granted, that meant sitting in a cell for an hour or two in some cases, creating huge spectacles and accomplishing little other than wasting taxpayer money.

But that's a topic for another time. Here are the now-infamous mug shots of Khloe Kardashian, Lindsay Lohan, Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton:

  • Khloe Kardashian Mug Shot
  • Lindsay Lohan Mug Shot: Reloaded!
  • Nicole Richie Mug Shot
  • Paris Hilton Mug Shot

Bonus points if you can match the amount of jail time served with the train wreck celebrity: 84 minutes, 22 days, 173 minutes, 82 minutes.

Talk about calling out celebrity gossip publications.

Joel Madden got his fans excited when he blogged Saturday: "WE DID IT!! NICOLE AND I FINALLY GOT MARRIED!! Click here for pictures!!"

He was just joking, of course â€" and taking a shot at lame celebrity news rag Star for falsely reporting he was planning a $2 million wedding.

Already parents of five-month-old daughter Harlow, Nicole Richie and Joel Madden are not married. Yet. They are very happy together, however.

"HAHA. JUST KIDDING," Joel Madden blogged. "So I feel really stupid even posting this, but I've been getting calls and texts from my family all week asking me why they weren't invited to my wedding."
