Lionel Richie, â€œThe Simple Lifeâ€ star’s father, has confirmed Nicole Richie and her fiancÃ© Joel Madden are busily preparing for the arrival of their son.
The â€œEndless Loveâ€ singer revealed, “Nicole is having a boy. She even has a few names picked out.”
The baby, who is the first child of Nicole Richie and Joel Madden, is due on New Year’s Eve (December 31).
The celebrity couple hosted a â€œThe Wizard of Ozâ€ themed baby shower on November18, where most of the guests, including Paris Hilton, brought blue boy-themed gifts.
The couple, who plan to marry next year, recently set up the Richie Madden Children’s Foundation for mothers in need. Next month, the charity will donate 100 ‘Mom-to-Be kits’ to the Los Angeles Free Clinic.
Guests at the baby shower were told to donate all gifts to charity, but were asked to bring a children’s book so the couple could start a library for their unborn baby.
