Attention All: Nicole Richie Wants You To Know, She is NOT Pregnant!

Rumors of a pregnant Nicole Richie surfaced this week after unflattering photos of Nicole showed up online, causing talk of a potential baby bump. Nicole went on the record and wants everyone to know: she is NOT pregnant. People reports that the starlet shot down speculation that she is with child in a statement released Friday.

“Contrary to recent speculation, I am not pregnant,” she said. “This irresponsible reporting continues to feed an atmosphere of self-doubt and insecurity. To publicly point out a change in anyone’s body is mean-spirited and cruel. People’s bodies change and change again. This is not newsworthy and is a waste of valuable media space that should be used for more important issues.”

The happy Richie-Madden fam

Nicole is a mother of two to daughter Harlow and son Sparrow. She also recently wed long-time BF, Good Charlotte frontman Joel Madden.

Do you think Nicole is really not pregnant, or is she just hiding it?
