Here they go again! Nicole Richie
and boyfriend Joel Madden
are expecting another child, barely a year after the arrival of daughter Harlow Winter Kate Madden last Jan. 11
In a message on the Web site of Good Charlotte, the band he fronts, Madden, 29, wrote, "I am so happy to tell everyone that Harlow is going to be a big sister! God has truly blessed my family. Hope [you're] all feeling as good as i am right now." Madden's message
is titled "Better than winning an OSCAR!"
After a famously wild childhood, Richie, 27, credited the birth of daughter Harlow for leading her to a more tranquil life
at home with Madden. "She gives life a whole new meaning," Richie told PEOPLE in a cover story featuring stunning photos of the blissful family
Reps for Madden and Richie did not immediately return calls for comment.
