Reality star Nicole Richie, 26, caught up with a few friends in LA on Tuesday. The pregnant star lunched with DJ/singer Samantha Ronson, and The Hills’ Lauren Conrad, 21, and Audrina Patridge, 22. Lauren currently on-off dates Nicole’s ex Brody Jenner — he is a celebrity baby in his own right, being the son of Olympic decathlon champion Bruce Jenner and actress Linda Thompson. Nicole and rocker boyfriend, Joel Madden, 28, expect their first child in early January — they have chosen not find out the sex. More images available at Just Jared.
