Nicole Richie Pregnant?

“The Simple Life” star is the subject of rumors that have her taking a series of medical tests, that have conclusively “confirmed she is pregnant,” according to Life and Style magazine.

Richie’s rep didn’t respond to requests for comment from either L&S or The Scoop, but on May 30, the star was photographed at a reproductive clinic, and the mag quotes an “insider” as saying, “Nicole’s determined to get healthy for her own sake and the baby’s.”

Hmm, and I’m guessing that Hilary Duff’s ex-boyfriend, Joel Madden, is the baby’s daddy? I’m also wondering if that means that she’s gonna have a jail-baby, since she’s also looking at facing time coming up here pretty soon. And finally, not to be too graphic, but I have a sneaking suspicion that her uterus probably isn’t exactly the most inhabitable place on the planet at this moment. I imagine it’s probably about as welcoming and cozy as a blanket of saltines. I just hope she knows that she can’t just put a nipple on a latte and try and feed a baby.
