Nicole Richie, who's four months pregnant with boyfriend Joel Madden's child, was rushed to the hospital recently in fear of miscarriage after she began excessively bleeding.
The reality TV star is said to have sought medical advice when she began to bleed excessively. Doctors reportedly had reassured Richie that her baby was safe, but encouraged her to give the baby more nutrition.
"Nicole was bleeding so much; it was really scary for her. They found out she's suffering from both a hormonal and nutritional deficiency," a source said of Nicole's recent condition.
The tiny socialite made it official in an interview with ABC News' Diane Sawyer earlier this month that she's pregnant with Madden's child. "Yes, I am. We are. I'm almost four months," she said at that time.
