Here’s some celebrity news we definitely maybe saw coming a mile away.

Nicole Richie is pregnant.

Yes, it’s true. The pregnancy rumors have been swirling for weeks, but many believed the “bump” Nicole Richie has sported to be merely a sign of malnutrition.

Not that one could be blamed for assuming that. Nicole Richie hates food.

But as of this afternoon, the gossip sleuths at TMZ have officially confirmed that Richie is pregnant.

The starlet has been dating Good Charlotte frontman Joel Madden for over six months. Rumors have been running rampant on the Internets for months that Richie and Madden are expecting, but TMZ confirmed through multiple sources that she is, in fact, pregnant.

Congratulations! And gross!

In Touch is reporting that the couple will tie the knot this summer. Meanwhile, Nicole Richie is currently facing DUI charges stemming from her arrest last December.

The Simple Life “star” was found driving the wrong way on the freeway while on Vicodin and pot. She weighed 85 pounds at the time, and may have lost 5-10 since.

Pregnant or not, Nicole Richie will go on trial July 11. If convicted, she faces jail time. Will the poor baby inside her womb get her off the hook? Who knows.

One thing’s for sure, though: Britney Spears must be psyched about this news: in nine months, she won’t be the worst celebrity mother in town.
