According to the latest issue of Star Magazine, Nicole and Joel have finally tied the knot!!!!
Richie and Madden reportedly had a small ceremony at their own home on October 14th as a part of the mass wedding event arranged by the Unification Church, in which 45,000 people were married around the world!
"Nicole is a free spirit, and she wanted a wedding ceremony that reflected that," an insider revealed.
"She found out about the mass wedding online and thought it would be perfect for the two of them."
So cute! We never took these two as the flashy, show-stopping wedding type anyway.
Joel and Nicole, who have been together since late 2006, never seemed in a rush to wed, even after the birth of their two children, Harlow and Sparrow - or at least we thought!
Says a source: "Joel had been begging Nicole to get married since before Harlow was born. She wasn't in a rush to make it official."
So why the change of heart?
The source says after the sudden death of Richie's former fiance and close friend, DJ AM in August, Richie realized she "didn't want to spend another day not being Mrs. Joel Madden."
Mazel tov, you two.
