Nicole Richie Finally Ready to Plan Wedding

Posted on

They waited until they had children to get engaged. So, perhaps it’s only natural that Nicole Richie and Joel Madden‘s wedding planning has been a bit delayed, too.

But Richie is planning to fix that in short order.

“I’ve been on the road. I just got home, and so it’s really going to be now that’s the time for me to sit down and think about what I want,” Richie says in an interview set to air Tuesday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Asked if they’ve set a date for the nuptials, she replies: “Not yet, but soon.”

Richie, 28, and Madden, who turns 31 on Thursday, confirmed their engagement in February, with Richie saying it took becoming a mom for her to realize she was ready to be a wife.

The couple have two kids: daughter Harlow, 2, and son Sparrow, 6 months.

Richie, whose father is the legendary singer-songwriter Lionel Richie, also reveals to DeGeneres that she was in a rap group when she was 8 years old – and, after some coaxing, performs a rap for Tuesday’s broadcast.
