Now that Nicole Richie and boyfriend Joel Madden have announced they are expecting a second child, their friends are brimming with well wishes for the couple.

"I'm so excited for Nicole," Paris Hilton told PEOPLE at the 1st Annual Leeza Gibbons Night to Make a Difference in Beverly Hills. And Hilton's mom, Kathy, has a hunch that Richie, 27, may be seeing blue this time around. "I think it's going to be a boy," said Kathy. "I'm never wrong."

As for the expectant mom, "she's a cool chick," Chuck actor Zachary Levi, who worked with Richie when she guest-starred on the show, told PEOPLE at the Fox Searchlight Oscar party. "I think that they'll be a good unit to hopefully bring up their kids in a way where they are stand-up individuals who lead their generation into being a good one."

Actress – and mother of three – Angie Harmon said Richie's experience as a mom to 1-year-old daughter Harlow will make parenting the second time around much easier.

"She knows what she’s doing since she already has one," Harmon said at Prince's party for his Web site

Harmon also had a request for the fashion-savvy star: "Start a maternity line!"
