Nicole Richie Refutes Pregnancy Rumors

Nicole Richie confirmed to Gossip Cop this afternoon that she IS NOT with child, stating:

“Contrary to recent speculation, I am not pregnant.  This irresponsible reporting continues to feed an atmosphere of self-doubt and insecurity. To publicly point out a change in anyone’s body is mean spirited and cruel.  People’s bodies change and change again. This is not newsworthy and is a waste of valuable media space that should be used for more important issues.”

While we’ve publicly wondered if Richie is prego or not, it is rather insulting to point to a celebrity’s belly region and inquire “Is That A Bun In The Oven?”  So…sorry about that, Ms. Ritchie-Madden.  Keep on keepin’ on.

Richie, in a studded biker jacket, looked ecstatic to see photogs outside her gym again today.  she has two children, Harlow and Sparrow, with husband Joel Madden.
