She was at Bloomingdales today promoting Winter Kate, her clothing and shoe line launching this Spring, which is why Nicole Richie taped Letterman last night and confirmed that she and Joel Madden are indeed engaged. See now I thought that happened a long time ago but she said it was “recently”. Convenient too. After all, she is on a press tour. Then Joel tweeted it just to make sure we all know and today it’s a big story. This is a business too. And she’s a smart girl, she gets it.

This morning it was Regis & Kelly. While no details were discussed about a wedding/marriage, Nicole did address baby names, Sparrow in particular.

"Joel and I have very different tastes in names. We really just have to work with whatever it is we both agree on, so I really liked Sparrow from Captain Jack Sparrow, and he liked it for different reasons…we call him Row. I didn't even realize that [both of their names] ended with 'ow.' I love the name Willow, and now that’s out because I’m not gonna have all kids with 'ows.'"

See I like Sparrow. Many people snickered about Sparrow. As I said at the time, Sparrow > Chad. And Row is totally badass. Heads up – Nicole is heading to Canada for Winter Kate, will be at Holt Renfrew in Montreal on February 18th.
