Nicole Richie is ready to pop. The former reality star, who is pregnant with her second child with Joel Madden, reportedly checked into a Los Angeles hospital last week after attending a memorial service for ex-boyfriend DJ AM, according to Hollyscoop.

Richie’s due date is reportedly some time in early September.

“It’s very exciting,” Nicole’s father, Lionel Richie, said. “Joel is hoping for a boy, but knowing Nicole she’s hoping for a little girl again. They’re not telling me what sex the baby is because I’ll tell everyone.”
