Though the new cover of Star magazine may make you believe that Nicole Richie and Joel Madden are expecting their second child, in reality, the story says they are just thinking about it.
"Nicole simply told Joel that she wants another baby --right away," a friend confides to Star. "He was a little overwhelmed at first, but now he's with her 100 percent. They're both thrilled about adding to their family."
Nicole is reportedly taking her vitamins and prepping her maternity wear, as she gets her mind and bod ready to house a sibling for Harlow.
And, though the mag says Nicole and Joel weathered a tough period recently, "Now things are amazing between them," says a source. "Nicole knows it's because they're both so happy with Harlow, and she truly believes another baby will double their commitment."
I love these two, so whether they are thinking about another little one, or they are just going to remain the happy parents of one, I wish them nothing but smiles in 2009.
