Punching up basic black with some accessories — a tie and tattoos for him, a scarf and jean jacket for her — Nicole Richie and Joel Madden posed for a photo on their way into Esprit Santa Monica on Thursday night in California. The event, which was tied to the store’s grand opening, was also a charity evening for the couple’s Richie-Madden Children’s Foundation.

Nicole, 27 and Joel, 30, expect their second child in late August/early September. The pregnancy was unexpected, Joel laughingly admits. “My mom called me and she’s like, ‘Is Nicole…?’ Every time, I’m like, ‘Mom, come on, seriously. I would tell you.’ And then I swear, two weeks later, it was like…it comes true! But we’re excited about it, it’s going to be great.”

The new baby will join big sister Harlow Winter Kate, 14 months.

Seeing these two together always makes me happy. It’s amazing what a turn around Nicole has had and I am so happy she is pregnant again. From this picture her bump looks adorable and she looks around 5 months pregnant. Any predictions for baby #2? Girl or boy? I just hope of course she has a healthy baby but I would love to see them with a boy!

I must admit that when they first got together, I thought they were just the oddest couple, but things seem to be working out for them so far and I hope it continues that way. They seem like great parents to Harlow so I’m genuinely excited for them that they’re having another child. I wonder if they know the sex yet… or are they not finding out? Maybe they’ll opt for another delivery surprise. It would be funny if they had a boy that looked exactly like Nicole since Harlow is basically a carbon copy of Joel. Either way, I can’t wait to hear what they name this little one.

I’m guessing a girl, only because she is carrying the same way she did with Harlow…I also think that while Harlow looks a lot like Joel, she is really starting to look a lot like Nicole now. I saw a picture of her in People magazine yesterday and was like, “Wow, she is really looking like Nicole!”
