They’re just absolutely over the moon about being parents.Joel comes home with something new he bought for the baby or thenursery every night. He says they both love talking to the baby, andthey play music for it.
He still tells me that they are engaged (she isnot wearing a ring in public though, just to keep away tabloid rumorsabout a wedding), and definitely plan to marry, but they’ve got no timeframe for it. Definitely not before the birth, and they’re thinking itmay be even up to a year or so after, depending on how everything goes.They really don’t discuss wedding plans that much. Nicole knows howmuch he loves her, and they’re in heaven with their current situation.Theystill don’t know the sex, and Joel says they are pretty certain they’renot going to find out. Overall, I’ve never seen him so happy. I’veknown him since we were teens, and he’s just a completely differentperson now. Head over heels in love, and absolutely ecstatic overfatherhood.
