Nicole Richie is talking about her pregnancy and the four-day jail sentence she received after her guilty plea to driving under the influence.
After months of rumors, Richie tells ABC News’ Diane Sawyer for an interview to air this week that she is almost four months’ pregnant and that her boyfriend, Good Charlotte frontman Joel Madden, is the father.
“Yes I am. We are,” she tells ABC, which issued a news release about the interview.
In the latest issue of OK! magazine, on newsstands Wednesday, Richie says she is feeling “healthy and happy” and her life “is clearly going to slow down.”
“I will be really happy once I have done my jail time,” the 25-year-old star of TV’s “The Simple Life” and on-again pal of Paris Hilton says. “I can start fresh.”
Richie was sentenced to nearly four days in jail after pleading guilty last week to a misdemeanor charge of driving under the influence of drugs.
“It was a fair, standard sentence,” the daughter of pop singer Lionel Richie, tells OK! “I expected that.”
She must complete her jail time by Sept. 28.
Her ABC interview was to air on “Good Morning America” on Thursday and Friday and on “20/20” Friday night.
“I have a responsibility and it’s something that I did wrong, and if I could personally apologize to every single person that has lost a loved one from drunk driving, I would,” Richie says in the ABC interview. “And unfortunately I can’t, but this is my way of paying my dues and taking responsibility and being an adult.”
The series finale of “The Simple Life” will air Sunday on E! The program, which debuted on Fox in 2003, throws Richie and Hilton into everyday situations.
