Nicole Richie & Joel Madden Give to Expectant Moms In Need

A couple of their word, Nicole Richie & Joel Madden shocked over 100 expectant moms, when they donated over $200,000 worth of gifts to the Los Angeles Free Clinic. Nicole and Joel considered it a surprise baby shower for the less fortunate pregnant ladies -- and surprised they were. "The looks on their faces were priceless," Nicole told reporters after the festivities. "Some of them didn't even believe us [when they saw the gifts]. They thought we were joking."

The Richie Madden Children's Foundation was created by the expecting couple, who say it's their way to give back to the community they grew up in and to honor their families. "We're lucky that we have families that get along and love each other," Joel said. "I think it's great that our child will grow up as a part of that family." Amongst the loot given to the families in need were cribs, mattresses and toys from Fisher-Price. "Everything they got, we got," Nicole said, "so everything that will be in their nursery, will be in our nursery."

And Joel wants everyone to know that he and his woman are just normal people, anxiously awaiting the birth of their first child. "Sometimes people don't want to believe that me and Nicole are just a young couple having a baby and we're really excited. We don't really get to share our lives with people. It's nice to connect with people on a real level." I seriously love them.
