Nic and her rock star hubby Joel could be looking to grow their family...
Their eight-year marriage has had its fair share of reported problems, but it looks like things are finally on the up for Nicole Richie and Joel Madden – because NW has exclusively learned the couple could soon be welcoming their third child!
Reality star-cum-fashion mogul Nicole and her rock singer husband Joel are already parents to Harlow, 11, and Sparrow, nine – but Nic got the pregnancy rumour mill grinding when she was spotted last week looking a bit bumpy after a workout! Now we’re told the chatter amongst her and Joel’s pals has reached fever pitch.
“The talk is that Nicole’s around the three or four-month mark, which means she’d be giving birth by June or July,” reveals an insider. “They’re being coy and d private about it at the moment, nt, but all the signs seem to be there ere and everyone’s keeping their fingers crossed for some wonderful news very soon.”
NW recently reported that the couple suffered a setback k over the holidays, with Nicole, e, 37, feeling insecure ahead of some impending time apart. With Joel prepping for a sellout European tour with his band Good Charlotte, Nic’s said to be seeing red and feeling green at all the attention he’ll receive from adoring female fans.
“It burns Nic like hell that anyone would think they’re in with a chance with her man,” an insider reported at the time.
Not helping matters was the re-emergence of scandalous claims that Joel, who turns 40 in March, may have fathered a love child during his pre-marital womanising days. But that looks to be behind them now – especially if the baby rumours prove true.
As our informant notes, “Nicole loves being a mum more than anything, so another baby would certainly bring them closer together. It’s no secret she’s been quite clucky lately, and with the children getting older she misses those precious moments of raising them when they were toddlers.”
Nicole’s sister-in-law Cameron Diaz, 46 – who tied the knot with Joel’s twin brother Benji in 2015 – is also reportedly trying to get pregnant. And that’s thought to be all the motivation Nic needs to follow suit.
“They’d love to be pregnant together – and it would be the boys’ dream come true as well, no doubt,” adds the source.
We’re keeping our fingers crossed for the awesome foursome adding two more kids to the clan!
