Nicole Richie finally put enough pounds to break the century mark. Now it looks like she is preparing to bid farewell to the Knocked Up, Unwed Celebrities Club!

According to TMZ, Nicole Richie and her baby daddy, rock musician Joel Madden, may have finally set the date for their wedding. And it's soon!

A Mom Again

Sources tell TMZ that The Wedding Fairy - no, not Perez Hilton, but an upscale wedding planner by that name based in Orange County, Calif., - will coordinate the small ceremony that is to take place October 13 in Laguna Beach.

Hopefully, the ceremony will be broadcast on MTV, with Lauren Conrad and Kristin Cavallari as bridesmaids and Stephen Colletti and Jason Wahler as groomsmen.

When the celebrity news site contacted Lorraine Keseloff, a wedding planner and owner of the company, who had no comment and quickly hung up the phone.

Nicole Richie's rep did not return calls seeking comment either. We'll keep our eyes peeled, though. Under two weeks until she's an honest anorexic woman!

Like Halle Berry, it appears Nicole Richie really is pregnant - and was telling the truth when she claimed to be knocked up with the spawn of Joel Madden earlier this summer.

Totally preggers and maybe cracking a smile, the 82-minute jailbird was snapped holding a different kind of ticket (if you will) at Los Angeles Int'l Airport...

Nicole Richie's signature look: Waifish preggers chic.

The waif with the growing belly looked content and without a stitch of makeup. Ah, the joys of motherhood. We wish Nicole Richie and Joel Madden - who are or probably engaged - well as they prepare for the arrival of their bundle of joy.

Just 82 minutes after Nicole Richie checked herself into Lynwood, Calif., jail, she left a free woman. That's some serious hard time.

According to the official website of the Los Angeles Sheriff's Dept., Nicole Richie checked in at 3:15 PM and was released at 4:37 PM.

Nicole was reportedly assigned to a cell for only 35 minutes! We've spent longer than that gazing at Mary-Louise Parker nude, for crying out loud.

A Sheriff's source tells TMZ Nicole was routinely processed and released according to normal operating rules. Yeah. Normal for rich brats who get strings pulled for them.

Nicole Richie Mug Shot: Reloaded!

Nicole Richie's mug shot screams: "I'm outta here, suckers!"

In a brilliant move by Nicole's lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, Richie was shuffled in and out of the can while the media's attention was focused on an even bigger law-breaking prima donna train wreck - Lindsay Lohan.

The anemic one was sentenced to four days in the slammer for driving the wrong way on an L.A. freeway while under the influence - her second DUI offense. She was given credit for one day because she was in the slammer for six hours after her arrest.

Because of prison overcrowding, though, and perhaps because she is pregnant with her first child, Nicole Richie was set free barely an hour after arriving.

Score another one for celebrity justice.

Nicole Richie was spotted yesterday afternoon in Westwood, and let us be the first to tell you that the anorexic waste has finally put on a couple of pounds!

Of course, it took a fetus growing in her for that to happen.

The worthless mother to be is no longer hiding her four-month baby bump, that's for sure. Check out this pic of her in a gray, stretchy dress with black sweater, accentuating the little spawn of Joel Madden nestled all up in that anemic ass womb. 

Joel Madden, Nicole Richie's beau and baby daddy, apparently proposed last week to the soon-to-be incarcerated mama. Though he hasn't said so publicly.

We don't intend on asking him, either. As Spencer Pratt recently learned the hard way, talk smack about Nicole and Joel will walk over at the club beat your ass.

As for the status of her pregnancy, we're optimistic... well, at least a little, after Nicole revealed to Diane Sawyer that since getting knocked up, she learned to "just say no." Phew.

Are congratulations in order for Nicole Richie and Joel Madden?

After a Friday night performance with his band, Good Charlotte, at the Hot 99.5 Lil' Black Dress Party - hosted by Perez Hilton - in Arlington, Va., Madden was walking offstage when Hot 99.5 morning show deejay Kane said to the crowd:

"He got engaged yesterday. Congratulations, Joel!"

To that, Joel Madden quickly glanced back over his shoulder, but was otherwise unresponsive as he made an exit from the stage behind his brother, Benji.

"We heard this morning," Kane told People following Good Charlotte's 40-minute set. Crediting he got the word from "good sources," Kane said he hadn't seen Richie since hearing the news, but added he had offered congratulations to Madden earlier in the night.

"He said, 'Thank you so much,'" recalled Kane. "They're very excited about the baby and the wedding. They want to keep their personal life personal."

Right. Nicole Richie has always sought privacy, not attention.

On Thursday, during a visit to Live! With Regis and Kelly, Madden was asked by cohost Philbin about "a little ring, or something."

"I was hoping it would be a surprise, but now..." Madden responded.

While there were no sightings of Richie at the party, she and Madden, expecting their first child together, were spotted in Washington, D.C., earlier that day.

The pair, with entourage in tow, popped into Nathans of Georgetown restaurant for a late lunch before making their way to the upscale baby boutique Dawn Price Baby.

It's not what you think. In fact, if you guessed "they're famous for no reason," obviously you haven't seen our boy Zac in High School Musical. Just saying.

Nicole Richie, Zac Efron are among several young stars recently spotted rocking crimson bracelets - much like the red Kabbalah string Madonna made famous a few years ago.

Conrad Pic

Is the trend making a comeback?

Richie (pictured here with the string on her limp, bony arm) and Lauren Conrad - also spotted wearing the string of late - each have been sporting a charm of a hand on them called a "hamsa," explains Rabbi Shmuley Boteach of TLC's Shalom in the Home.

"It's a kabbalistic symbol. Wearing it is meant to bring down God's mercy and kindness."

But a rep for Zac Efron (who's girlfriend, Vanessa Hudgens, also wears one), tells Us Weekly that his bracelet has no significance.

"It's not a kabbalah string," the rep said.

"There's no religious meaning [to the red string]."

Meanwhile, Lauren Conrad's rivals on The Hills, Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, are probably rushing to try and patent string, as well as the color red, so they can cash in on this fad.

A pregnant Nicole Richie has one thing going for her most other expectant mothers do not:

There's no need to worry about excess baby weight. This celebrity could use as many pounds as she can get.

By the looks of the photo below, Richie is benefiting in another way from being knocked up: look at those breasts! While not exactly at the level of Lucy Pinder or Michelle Marsh's chest yet, Nicole's boobs have grown noticeably larger since Joel Madden put a bun in her oven.

(Excuse us... we just threw up a little in our mouths from that image.)

While Jodie Sweetin-like breasts are nice and all, we hope Richie didn't get pregnant just to boost her bust size. Having a baby is a big responsibility. At the least, it means no more Vicodin-induced, wrong way driving incidents.

Apparently the birthing process does not stop you from having a successful American Idol audition, however. Right, Antoria Gillon?

But don't get any ideas, Nicole. It's bad enough Heidi Montag is coming out with an album. We don't need to hear you sing, too.

And to think, Paulina James thought she had the celebrity porn movie world all to herself.

The adult film star, who will be portraying Lindsay Lohan nude in an upcoming flick, now must deal with the fact this sex-filled spoof won't be the only title of its kind coming out in the near future.

A Harlow Smile

Venom Digital Media is releasing Paris and Nicole Go to Jail in September, a very x-rated version of the thin stars' jail hijinks.

Sindee Jennings and Aubrey Addams (what, was Kendra Jade unavailable?) will be filling the talentless, law-breaking shoes of these socialites, as they find "that life is different on the inside, and at first have trouble adapting, but soon learn how to get things in prison by becoming friendly with the warden, the guards, the inmates."

We think Stavros Niarchos is familiar with how Hilton goes about doing that!

Nicole Richie is pregnant now, of course, so she may wish to keep her future child away from the porn aisles when he or she gets older.

As for her skanky friend, well, a Paris Hilton sex tape is nothing new. This one just won't be starring the spoiled heiress herself is all.

If The Simple Life taught us anything, it's that BFFs Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie do everything together! We never expected that to mean going to the same jail, though.

The Hollywood Gossip has learned that Nicole will serve her four-day jail sentence at the Century Regional Detention Facility at Los Angeles County's women's jail in Lynwood.

That's where Paris Hilton spent 23 days for violating probation.

"Nicole Richie and her attorney have indicated that she wants to do her time in county jail," L.A. County Sheriff's Department spokesman Steve Whitmore said. "Lynwood is the only county jail for women in L.A., so if she does go to county jail she will go to Lynwood."

The former reality star could enter Lynwood late in the evening (as Paris Hilton did) and get credit for an entire day. There's also a chance she could be awarded "good time" credit, which would also shorten the sentence.

Meanwhile, the pregnant Richie told Diane Sawyer she was so surprised to discover that she was Knocked Up, she took five pregnancy tests to convince herself it was for real.

"It took me - it really took me a long time to really - for it to sink in," she says. "I actually didn't even really believe it until I heard the heartbeat."

ABOVE: Diane Sawyer interviews Nicole Richie. Why? No idea.

Richie was speaking to Diane Sawyer for an exclusive interview - in three parts - Thursday and Friday on ABC's Good Morning America and then tonight on 20/20.

Richie and Joel Madden, who have already started a video diary for their unborn baby, tell Sawyer they don't want to know whether the child is a boy or a girl.

"We're going to try and hold out," says Richie. "Try."

That's cute. But can we ask why Diane Sawyer is interviewing Nicole Richie? What is that significant here? For us, news and gossip about celebrities are what we deal in. But is it that slow over at ABC that its quote-unquote journalists are resorting to Hollywood gossip - and pretty boring items, at that? Just saying.

Almost four weeks after we reported that Nicole Richie and boyfriend Joel Madden were expecting, Richie has finally confirmed her pregnancy.

In an interview scheduled to air this tomorrow on Good Morning America and then Friday on Good Morning America and 20/20, the former Simple Life star tells ABC's Diane Sawyer:

"Yes I am. We are. I'm almost four months."

Thank you so much for this revelation, which totally wasn't confirmed already.

In addition to finally coming clean about her growing baby bump, Richie, 25, talks to Sawyer about her decision to plead guilty to DUI and accept four days in jail.

"I have to take responsibility," she said. "It's something I did wrong, and if I could personally apologize to every person that has lost a loved one from drunk driving I would. Unfortunately I can't, but this is my way of paying my dues and taking responsibility and being an adult."

Looks like Nicole learned a thing or two from her friend Paris Hilton - and decided, wisely, to behave in exactly the opposite way.

Nicole Richie was convicted and must serve 96 hours in jail for her second DUI in the next 60 days. Lonely, Joel Madden will continue to play rock music with Good Charlotte.

Meanwhile, her reality show, The Simple Life, which was apparently still running on cable, has apparently been canceled. Maybe when she gets out of jail, she'll consider laying low, chilling with Joel and reconnecting with father Lionel Richie.
