I've been trying to avoid talking about the possibility of Nicole Richie actually being pregnant until there was some sort of confirmation from the starlet or her camp, but now she's rocking some bling on her left ring finger and I think we should at least acknowledge the swirling stories. Recent photos showed the usually concave Nicole with a slightly bloated belly and in some very loose dresses (not that anything really ever fits her). Then at the YSL Pool Party at the Beverly Hills Hotel on Thursday night, Nicole and her beau, Good Charlotte's Joel Madden, made the rounds while Nicole sported a pretty sparkler on her "I'm taken" hand. Sources say neither Nicole nor Joel drank any alcohol at the bash and that the rocker was "overly attentive to her - keeping his arm around her all night -- and repeatedly asked her if she was okay."
Some believe Nicole orchestrated the whole pregnancy, hoping it will keep her from spending any time in the slammer, like her good pal Paris, for her second DUI arrest last December. I have a hard time believing Nicole could even get pregnant or carry a baby with her lack of skin, but, if it is true, maybe she will finally join in on the newest fad that's sweeping the nation: eating.
