Joel Madden and Nicole Ritchie pick special date to marry

November 26, 2008

(ChattahBox) — Nicole Richie and Joel Madden who have resisted the idea previously, are reportedly now ready to marry and have a very special date in mind. The couple are supposedly keen to tie the knot on daughter Harlow’s first birthday on January 11, 2008 to show their child how much they love each other.

Nicole and Good Charlotte rocker Joel are planning to sell pictures of the ceremony to a magazine but not to cash in for themselves. The philanthropic couple intend to donate any money they make from their special day to charity.

A source close to Nicole tells: “They’ve spoke about giving any money they get for photos of their wedding to Beyond Shelter, a homeless charity in Los Angeles that they work with. They also plan to give any presents away as well.”

Nicole whose adoptive father is singer Lionel Richie, has been visiting Beyond Shelter in Los Angeles two or three times a week and spends a couple of hours with homeless children. She loves being around them and was recently reported to have been inspired to adopt a child after spending time with homeless children through her work with Beyond Shelter.

The source said: “Nicole is seriously looking into it and asking a lot of questions about adopting.”
