Good Charlotte rocker Joel Madden began dating reality TV star Nicole Ritchie in December 2006. Joel was fresh from a relationship with Hilary Duff and Nicole was in the process of patching things up with on again-off again BFF Paris Hilton. Since dating Joel, Nicole has shunned the Hollywood party lifestyle and taken a more mature approach to living.

Looking healthy and happy, Joel and Nicole welcomed their first baby into the world in January 2008. Though the pregnancy was unexpected, the pair was thrilled. They named their baby daughter Harlow Winter Kate Madden, in keeping with bizarre Hollywood baby names.

It hasn’t always been smooth sailing for the pair. Shortly after the birth of Harlow, Nicole appeared to rapidly shed the healthy weight she’d put on, which reportedly infuriated Joel. Then, in late September 2008, rumours of a rift between the pair began to spread and the media was rife with news of a split. However, Joel and Nicole never separated and have since become engaged and are now planning to wed. On top of a wedding to organise, they are also preparing themselves for the birth of their second child.

Joel and Nicole recently announced that they were pregnant again, and sources say that the couple want to marry before they have the second baby. Friends say Nicole and Joel are traditional in some ways, and want to do things the right way this time round. Nicole is already said to have a Yves Saint Laurent wedding dress hanging in the back of her closet.
