Joel Madden and new beau Nicole Richie are reportedly tieing the knot, a spokesperson for Madden said Saturday. “Simply put: they’re in love,” the spokesperson said. “They share a special bond that most couples who have been married for 20 years never see.” Older brother Benji Madden, who recently announced he was engaged to Australian actress Sophie Monk, may be joining the ceremony. Benji was unavailable for comment on the idea of a double wedding. “It would be ideal for two guys from Maryland who came into the world at the same time to enter the next chapter of their lives at the same time,” Joel Madden told the Associated Press. No date for the wedding has been set. “The couple wants a fall wedding,” Madden’s spokesperson said. “He definitely wants a little more time before he starts a family.” April Fool’s.
