Congratulations to <a href="" target="_blank"><strong>Nicole Richie</strong></a> and <a href="" target="_blank"><strong>Joel Madden</strong></a>, who announced this morning that they are expecting their second child!

In <a href="" target="_blank">post on the official Good Charlotte blog</a>, Joel wrote: "What’s better than winning an Oscar? 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…"

This will make the second child in under two years for the couple, who are already parents to adorable baby girl Harlow Winter Kate Madden, born on Jan. 11, 2008.

Only a couple of months ago, Joel told <em>OK</em>! that he and Nicole were already thinking of expanding their young family.

"Eventually we’d love to have more kids," he <a href="" target="_blank">said at the time</a>. "Especially if they can all be as easy and wonderful as Harlow!"
