Is Nicole Richie … pregnant?!



UPDATE – JULY 3 ’07 so national enquirer was right all along – nicole richie is pregnant with boyfriend joel madden‘s baby! they were first on the story almost six weeks ago with the cover below! today in touch magazine confirmed the news – but the enquirer totally broke the story first – everyone was in complete disbelief but they do actually get it right sometimes…kudos to david perel and his team! (i can’t imagine ms. richie being a mom right now – this should be very interesting…)



oh my gosh i just woke up to the brand new national enquirer cover in my inbox and their big story this week revolves around the real reason nicole richie is seeking help…she’s pregnant – or so the magazine claims – oh my goodness! (she does appear to have a slight bump going on in the picture below which could also be a bloated belly from not eating…) but will she be keeping her baby if this is true?!? at her weight i’d imagine it would be difficult to come full term but if she’s trying to get help maybe we’ll see nicole go all mommy on us! (don’t forget last week the magazine broke the news about her latest rehab attempts) the other hot story is heather locklear in AA – good for her if she’s got some issues – at least she’s working through them – hell i’d become a drunk too after my BFF denise richards stabbed me in the back! popbytes over & out for now…xxoo!

    Denise didnt do anything to Heather, Heather did it ALL to herself.
    She’s drinking to try and forget what she did to Richie and to her daughter
    SHE, that nasty piece of work, is the one with the guilty conscience
    I HATE HER.
    Shame that everyone else can’t see what I see. oh well.

  • meg

    She probably hasn’t even been able to have a period for 6 months to a year. She’s too malnourished for it. That belly is a common symptom in severely anorexic people.Amazing that anyone would think it is a baby bump.

  • Marqs

    Rumor out there was Heather was a user of Vocodin, plus other concoctions, that Spade was her connection. My opinion is that she had to of been on something cause she looked messed up. From those bikini shots of her recently, she looks like she’s in her late 50s.

  • Clementines

    Her liver is dying..

  • Y’all are Nuts

    I don’t know if you know anyone in their late 50s, Marqs, but, and this being from FL where the market is cornered on Q-tips, I think she looks damned good for her age in those pics. Being harsh is only funny if it is accurate.
    Annie, I have a question, what are you talking about? I thought Denise cheated behing Heather’s back. Clearly I missed something -fill me in! What did she do to Richie and her daughter?

  • andromeda1084

    That pic of Cate Blanchett still gives me the creeps.
    David Spade as a drug connection? I never would have believed it *rolls eyes*

    She’s not pregnant. Those are probably bones poking through her abdominal wall.

  • rKells

    She’s not pregnant, she’s malnourished. That’s what happens when fools don’t eat. Think of what malnourished people look like in Africa; very thin bodies and protruding stomachs. She’s freaking disgustingly thin. She’s thinner than my pre-pubescent 12-year-old sister.

  • LB

    pregnant…um, ok. how can peeps try to turn that into anything else but malnourshment when the bitch weighs 80lbs..

  • liz

    DUH. are you that starved for a story?? someone that low weight cannot conceive a child. she cant even get her period!!! a bloated belly is a symptom of Anorexia. IE> being underweight. she is NOT pregnant.

  • Hersh

    that’s not a pregnancy belly, that’s MALNUTRITION BLOAT. the broad needs to go eat a biscuit and stop playing. she’s gross

  • Nutritionist

    Nicole is suffering from protein energy malnutrition (PEM). Because of her anorexia, she is not eating enough protein (or enough of any other nutrients). The lack of protein carriers that transport fat out of the liver causes the belly to bulge with a fatty liver. Her limbs and face may also swell with edema. Without adequate nutrition, all of her muscles, including her heart, will waste and weaken. She needs professional help.

    That’s nicole richie’s gut, thanks.

  • DAz

    It’s called “malnurishment”. The belly being swollen is from lack of food, you will also see this among children of 3rd world countries. Those who are suffering from starvation. What an example these ladies are setting. If they were “naturally” petite or thin…we wouldn’t be seeing their bones! If the bones are sticking out, sorry…they can deny all they want, But they are starving themselves. Shame on them!

  • lauren

    its called edema. leave the girl alone, youre just making it worse.

  • Canada girl

    Thats not a baby…its just the piece of paper she ate for lunch sticking out.

  • Nedroj

    USA..damn what a sick country. If they not are fat like pigs , they are skinny like old mummys…

  • shame on you

    don’t you dare judge an entire country by a few fucktards you see in pictures, you drooling idiot. i bet whatever country you’re from has it’s share of loonies, skinnies, fatties, druggies and all the rest jsut like usa. and don’t bother posting anything in response this, i don’t ever check back on what i wrote. cyberfighting back n forth is far too embarassing to engage in.

  • megara

    You never know, she could be pregnant! I don’t even think she’s that thin. And just because you’re underweight does not mean you can’t have your period. You’re all saying she can’t get it, but the only person that would really know would be her!! I can tell u one thing, I went through anorexia a few years back, and at 5’5, I weighed 80 pounds and was hospitalized because of it! And I still managed to have my period, so it’s NOT impossible!!

  • Sarah

    is the dad joel madden??

  • SarahD-P

    The woman needs help. I am not saying it to be mean like everyone of you are!! Because it WILL make it worse!!! I am in support of Nicole Richie!!! Girl if your reading this right now I support you and I know you can beat this disease!!!

  • misty

    you can loss weight and still be pregnant i did i am 19 and weigh 98lbs and i got pregnant. but it its hearder for us to do it.

  • love

    This is a bunch of bull shit. This magazine is bull shit. Nothing is true about it. The publishers are a bunch of assholes they are just wanting to make more rumors

  • Shanikia

And if anybody gotta problem wit my comment yall get up wit me!!!
    *******bhzgurl_2011@yahoo.com********

  • Jackie

    I really want to belive that she is pregnant, but i know its not true. I mean shes friggin anerexic. Also it would amaze me if she was, i mewan she would be a horrible mother!!!
    *i heard she was seen coming out of a reproductive clinic

  • Alex

    who the hell believes this shit??? The National Enquire i a bunch of garbage, lies, and horrible PhotoShopped images. Nothing that’s ever been written in that magazine was ever true . Who ever is dumb enough to believe any this rubbish needs to have their head checked.

  • Jessica

    i read that its confirmed that she is pregnant and its not impossible for skinny girls to get pregnant!! that stupid

  • christine

    just because you people don’t know anyone who has a very small frame and is naturally thin doesn’t mean you have to believe ridiculous doctors who are just as naive. i have been between 85-90 lbs. for years and i am 5’5 and 20 years old. my best friend is barely 5’0 and extremely thin and only weighs 75-80 at the most. yes, it is thin, but it is not necessarily anything bad just because everyone in america is a fatass and thinks anyone who doesn’t look like oprah is anorexic.

  • Phoebie

    I can’t believe how cruel and nasty you people are being towards Nicole. Yes she may be underweight by BMI standards but did you ever stop to think she has an illness and instead of judging her and abusing her, perhaps she would recover if people were more supportive. I hope she is pregnant and that the baby turns out happy and healthy. I am the same age and height as her and weigh 81lbs but am also attempting to recover. I also am hoping to get my period back after 2 years of not having one so that i can have a baby. We may be ill but we are not bad people and just like anyone else we deserve to be happy and have a full life. And anyone who thinks “the broad needs to go eat a biscuit and stop playing. she’s gross” is just incredibly uneducated, pathetic and heartless.
    Grow up and leave her alone to live her life.

  • Wilson

    SHE IS DISGUSTING. PLEASE STOP WITH THE PHOTOS OF HER ALREADY. I WANT TO JUST PUSH HER INTO ONCOMOING TRAFFIC AT THIS POINT

  • Maddie

    Man you know what? I’m going on 12 years old, and I’m already 78 pounds. I wiegh as much as nicole richie. My brother (who is 15) can pick her up. that’s bad. it’s really bad and unheathy. Believe it or not, a superstar has to GAIN weight.

  • Jessica

    I truly hope she is NOT pregnant. Someone who is psychologically fucked up enough to be anorexic doesn’t need to go produce more psychologically fucked up kids.

  • Belle

    SHES PREGNANT IF IT WAS MALNURTION THE BUMP WOULD BE IN HER STOMACH NOT HER UTERUS IM TRAINNG TO BE A NURSE I THINK I KNOW THAT THE BUMP IS IN THE UTERUS IN THE EARLY STAGES IN THE LATER STAGES THE BABY WILL PRESS ON THE RIB CAGE AND WILL LOOK LIKE IT IS IN THE STOMACH AN WILL BE MUCH LARGER BUT IF YOU CANT TELL ITS NOT IN THE STOMACH YOU NEED TO STOP POSTING FALSE INFO!!!!!!!

  • Sarah

    She is not naturally thin, she used to be a normal, healthy weight so supporting an eating disorder by saying that she is naturally thin is just helping people deny and support such a horrific example.

  • Amber

    OK so here is my speal. I am 24 years old and weigh a whopping 109 lbs!! I am 5′ even. This is the most I have ever weighed. I got pregnant with my first child 4 years ago and I was a whopping 89 lbs I only gained 12 lbs with my daughter, when I had my second I made it to 107lbs. It is very possible to get pregnant as a skinny girl, believe me. And her “bloating” is in the uterus just like mine was in the beginning. I honestly believe she is pregnant and I pray to GOD that she will be a better mom then Britney!! I dont ever wish anything bad on her. Whats pathetic is you people sit here and bash away, you dont know her and until you do maybe you should just bite your tongue!! So you know, Im pregnant with #3 and my body at the moment looks just like those pics. GROW UP PEOPLE!!!

  • http://myspace.com/running_resistance ash

    she is not pregnant!! lil nicole wouldnt get pregnant that easily (she isnt anorexic anymore or anything) but she is still a little person! i doubt she even could get pregnant at the weight she is now! rumors..rumors..rumors.

  • phoebie

    “OK so here is my speal. I am 24 years old and weigh a whopping 109 lbs!! I am 5′ even. This is the most I have ever weighed. I got pregnant with my first child 4 years ago and I was a whopping 89 lbs”

  • Lil M

    NICOLE RICHIE BEING PREGANT IS A GOOD THING. AND FOR ALL U FUCKING BITCHEZ THAT DON’T KNOW NICOLE LIKE I DO. SHUT UP! IM THE ONLY ONE THAT ACTUALLY KNOWS HER!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Jesser

    I think its great that nicole is going to have a baby. Even though it may be mentally disabled its ok because she’s going to love that baby with every thing she has. She is probably going to stay at a healthy weight too. so I am proud of her because she looks like a normal pregnate woman should.
