Nicole Richie’s Baby Heavier Than Her

SIMPLE Life superstar Nicole Richie has given birth to a baby girl almost four pounds heavier then she is.

Last year Richie endorsed a range of sunglasses that were heavier than her

The baby was born after a 16 hour labour during which Nicole repeatedly asked her friends: "Am I getting any thinner?"

According to hospital sources Nicole breast fed the infant before accusing it of being 'a tubby cow' and sticking her fingers down its throat.

"Nicole is doing well and has asked for a mirror and a bucket," said boyfriend Joel Madden, a fat man that Richie took in off the street.

The baby, named 'Giganto', is expected to begin therapy sessions early next week.

Meanwhile California's gynaecologists have welcomed the birth as a milestone in celebrity gestation.

Dr Wayne Hayes said: "The last thing a celebrity mother wants is to envy the slim, toned figure of her own baby."

He added: "In recent years we have been able to deliver several babies who were only a little bit lighter than the mother. The Richie baby is very much our Apollo 11."
