Socialite Nicole Richie has confirmed that she is officially engaged to her rock star boyfriend Joel Madden.
The couple have a daughter Harlow, two, and five-month-old son Sparrow.
Richie was recently seen on The Late Show With David Letterman, showing off a large engagement ring, before joining friends at a New York restaurant where she was overheard talking about her impending nuptials.
A source said: She was glowing. She was telling her table how happy she was.
Good Charlotte singer Joel, 30, later confirmed the news and stated that they kept their engagement a closely guarded secret for some time.
He tweeted: Yep. I'm engaged. Very happy.
Yeah we've been engaged for a while so your all kind of late on that. But Thanks for the hooplah all the same (sic)."
Richie said: "One day I would love to get married. It's not something we're talking about right now. If my kids ask me to get married, I'd get married.
"I think for both of us, we are going to do it because we want to, not because that's what you do. We're going to do it when the time's right."
However, it is believed that the couple are aiming to marry over the summer.
