Moreover, the couple of three months are taking the next big step. No, they’re not popping Vicodin and hitting the bong together. Well, they probably are. But here, we’re talking about L.A. house hunting!

Nicole Richie lives in a West Hollywood condo. Joel has a house in suburban Glendale. They have talked about shacking up. Plans are in the works.

“Nicole hasn’t moved in with him yet… but they are looking at places,” says the insider.

Of course, the only house Nicole might be moving into soon is the Big House. We’re talking about her going to prison. Richie faces up to a year in jail if convicted of a second DUI.

Her most recent legal problems stem from her arrest last year for driving the wrong way down an L.A. highway. Check out her hottt mug shot!

Prior to dating Madden, Nicole was engaged to DJ AM and briefly dated Brody Jenner, though apparently he was just doing that to get famous.

Joel was the longtime boyfriend of sexy virgin Hilary Duff.
