After being together for more than three years and parenting sweet Harlow and little Sparrow together, Nicole Richie and Joel Madden have decided to make honest people of each other and tie the knot. The two have gotten engaged and although just when that happened is still up in the air, we do know it will be made official very soon. And actually already has been.
Joel was the first to post the news on his Twitter account but then he quickly took it down. Word on the street is that Nicole wants to make the announcement herself when she’s on David Letterman, which she recently taped and made the announcement. After Joel had deleted the announcement, he posted another way hinting at the fact that all was not well in the Ritchie-Madden household. Not even married yet and Nicole’s already got the nag down! To be fair to her, Joel has made most of the major announcements that they’ve shared so giving her this one only seems right. From People,
“They’ve been together for more than three years and have two children. Now, Nicole Richie and Joel Madden are planning to make it official.
“Yep. i’m engaged. Very happy. Yeah we’ve been engaged for a while so your all kind of late on that. But Thanks for the hooplah all the same,” Madden Tweeted Monday night, after news of their plans to wed went wide. He also expressed thanks to relatives who did not let word of the engagement slip.
He Tweeted: “P.s. thats why i love my family and friends. None of them are sources. All good tight lipped people who let us enjoy it! Thanks everybody”
Richie said Monday night during a taping of the Late Show with David Letterman that the couple are engaged to be married, a source told PEOPLE.
After the show, Richie headed to the New York restaurant Abe & Arthurs – without her fiancé – for dinner. “She was glowing,” says a source. “She was telling her table how happy she was.”
There’s no doubt the story is true but there do seem to be some contradicting details. Such as, if they’ve been engaged for some time, as Joel would like to have us all believe, why is Nicole in such a ‘glowing’ state about it? I’m not saying that it’s not exciting for the whole time of the engagement but this article really makes it seem as though Nicole has just announced the news to everyone, which is also not what the article would have us believe. Their ‘tight-lipped’ family and friends apparently have known for a long time.
In the end, it really doesn’t matter when Nicole and Joel got engaged. Maybe that’s something new Nicole will let us in on during the Late Show. Congratulations to them both! They’re a very cute couple and I wish them all the best!
