Nicole Richie, 25, finally confirmed the baby rumors that have been circulated tabloids and celebrity blogs.

"Yes I am. We are. I'm almost four months." said that the "Vicodin-popping, wrong-way-driving, Paris Hilton-feuding reality starlet" is expecting the child of Joel Madden (of Good Charlotte).

She confirmed the speculations in an interview with Diana Sawyer as well as adding a public apology for driving under the influence. "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 said.

Guess she's trying to take responsibility as she prepares for motherhood.
