Nicole Richie has been packing on the pounds lately and a source close to the usually waif-thin Candidly Nicole reality star tells RadarOnline.com that her and husband Joel Madden are trying for baby number three!
But according to the source – although the love is still there between the couple of almost a decade – her intentions are all wrong.
"Nicole is currently gaining weight because she is trying for another child with Joel," says the source.
"After going through a really rough patch she feels that having a baby will help repair everything that is wrong with them."
As Radar previously reported, Richie and Madden were reported to be on the brink of divorce just a few months ago, as each of them stepped out without their wedding rings.
According to the friend, however, the mother to Harlow, 7, and Sparrow, 6, is worrying her pals who think that "she is just trying to get pregnant so that she can pressure Joel into staying with her."
"Her inner circle just hopes that she can figure this out before it's too late," the insider adds.
Do you think that Nicole Richie and Joel Madden's marriage can be fixed with another child?
