Nicole RichieNICOLE Richie is getting married!

The former Simple Life star announced on Monday’s The Late Show with David Letterman that she’s engaged to her Good Charlotte rocker boyfriend Joel Madden.

Richie, 28, and Madden, 30, started dating in December 2006 and have two children together: Harlow, 2, and Sparrow, 5 months.

“Yep. I’m engaged. Very happy,” wrote Joel on Twitter Monday. “Yeah we’ve been engaged for a while so your [sic] all kind of late on that. But Thanks for the hooplah all the same.”

“Nicole and Joel are in the process of planning the wedding,” a source told Us Weekly magazine. “She’s very involved in every detail. She’s thrilled.”

The couple is expected to tie the knot in the summer, Us Weekly reports.

Richie has previously insisted she’s in no rush to walk down the aisle.

“I think for both of us, we are going to do it because we want to, not because that’s what you do,” she told CNN’s Larry King in an interview last year. “We’re going to do it when the time’s right.”
