They are twins who "share everything," but Benji and Joel Madden have very different lives right now – and Benji couldn't be happier.
Two weeks after Joel and Nicole Richie announced that they're expecting baby No. 2, the "single" twin tells PEOPLE he's ready to be an uncle again, just not a dad.
Besides, he's had a while to get used to the idea – he knew about the pregnancy long before it was announced publicly. "You have to wait before you can tell people," he admits at the World Poker Tour Celebrity Invitational in California. "I found out a little bit earlier. We're twin brothers so we share everything."
Madden, who calls the pregnancy "exciting," hopes his brother has a big family. "They're the best parents I've ever seen," he says.

Earlier in the night she may have called it "the horror that is Valentine's Day," but Katy Perry appears to have been struck by cupid's arrow – which also seems to have hit Paris Hilton's ex, Benji Madden.
Following her Valentine's show at Hard Rock Hotel's Wasted Space, Perry, 24, and Madden, 29, headed to Lavo – where the two conspicuously cuddled throughout the night, later prompting one observer to sense "some chemistry there."
Madden, in town to deejay, even danced for Perry during several songs – and at those rare times when their hands weren't on each other's legs.

Harlow Winter Kate Madden won't be a year old until Jan. 11, but her uncle, Benji Madden, already has a warning for potential suitors.
"I'm going to be keeping a close eye on her," Madden, 29, tells PEOPLE of the daughter of twin brother Joel Madden and his girlfriend Nicole Richie, 27. "I'll leave the shotgun right by the door."
Says Madden, who rang in the new year in Las Vegas at Hard Rock Hotel's Body English, "We're lucky being twins, because Joel can be the good guy and I'll be the bad guy."

When it comes to rumors, Benji Madden says the best medicine is a sense of humor. He would know, too, since the last year of his life has been profiled and scrutinized in the media largely based on a high-profile romance with Paris Hilton.
"You just kind of have to laugh about all the things that are said," he told PEOPLE. "People will call me all the time and be like 'Hey, I heard this or that.' "
To clear up the latest rumor, no, he isn't dating Britney Spears. "That one was news to me. My friend called me and asked if I was dating Britney because he read it somewhere and I was like, what?"

Paris Hilton and Benji Madden may have broken up, but they're still close friends, she said Friday.
"You know, I love him. He's such an amazing man and he's my best friend and he's been so great to me and so loyal," Hilton said Friday on Ryan Seacrest's KIIS F.M. radio show. "He's an incredible person. We'll always be very close. We'll see what happens in the future. I'm still in love with him."
Asked what happened, Hilton cited busy work schedules and lots of travel as the reason behind their split.
"We're both working so much," she told Seacrest. "There are all these reports saying that I dumped Benji. That's not true. This was a decision we made together as two adults."

Benji Madden and Paris Hilton's relationship is intact and better than ever, the Good Charlotte guitarist tells PEOPLE.
Reports that he cheated on his girlfriend of nine months are "definitely not true," Madden, 29, tells PEOPLE. "It's very frustrating when you finally find yourself in a good relationship and people attack it. I wear my feelings on my sleeve. I'm very open about how in love I am – Paris and I are very happy."
Madden, whose band will release its next album, The Greatest Remixes, on Nov. 25, says one of his and Hilton's relationship rules was inspired by Johnny Cash and his longtime love, wife June Carter Cash.

Even while sipping Grey Goose out at a club, Paris Hilton has babies on the brain.
"I definitely want three or four [children]," she told PEOPLE in Las Vegas Saturday night, while partying at Pure Nightclub for her sister's birthday.
As for a timeline? "Soon," she said. "Maybe a year or two."
In the meantime, she's just enjoying domestic life with beau Benji Madden. "We just had our 7 month anniversary," she gushed. "We are just so happy."
Add sister Nicky – who just turned 25 – to the "so happy" list.
The entrepreneur said she's "content" with longtime boyfriend David Katzenberg. Still, "there are no wedding plans," she added. "There are lots and lots of rumors but I will put them to rest."
