Nicole Richie, Joel Madden engaged to be married
Joel Madden and Nicole Richie are engaged to be married, she announced Monday night on a taping of David Letterman's show. They have two young kids together: daughter Harlow, 2, and son Sparrow, 5 months.
Though the interview isn't set to air until Friday, Nicole did flash her ring outside the studio Monday night. Madden confirmed Monday on Twitter that they'd been engaged for a while, and praised friends and family for keeping their lips zipped until the official announcement.
The Good Charlotte singer also tweeted Tuesday morning that they were enjoying being snowed in in New York City: "yeah you all forget we live in LA, we want to be snowed in. Its exciting to us. We are now putting on a dvd. Just let us enjoy this."
In addition to their day jobs and taking care of their kidlets, the two have a charity, the Richie-Madden Children's foundation, and have recently been partnered, along with Benji Madden, in 7-Eleven's Coffee Cup with a Cause, which runs through February.
