Nicole Richie is using her Wizard of Oz-themed baby shower to benefit charity.
The Simple Life star and boyfriend Joel Madden, who are due to have their first child in January, will donate baby gifts to 100 expectant families in need through the newly-formed Richie Madden Foundation through the Los Angeles Free Clinic.
This is fantastic. This pregnancy has really treated Nicole Richie well. She smiles a lot, she’s packed on weight, she’s taken on humanitarian efforts, and she appears to have reconciled with Paris Hilton. We hope that she’s still as silly as she was during her The Simple Life days. And it’s great that, as an adoptee, she’s giving something back. Everybody loves someone pregnant. Somewhere Rachel Zoe is downing laxatives and looking for a new protégé. We hope she stays away from the cast of Gossip Girl. Chace Crawford does not need any more pretty-ing up. Good effort on Joel and Nicole’s part. Check out this great article from Tango on charity for couples (Click Here).
