just weeks before she is due to give birth to her first child with JOEL
According to America’s Star magazine, the 26-year-old became dizzy and
disorientated at Madden’s California home on 26 December (07). The Good

A source tells the magazine, “Her heart was racing – she was swearing and had

death that her baby’s health was in jeopardy.
“Thank God Joel was there to take care of her. He immediately called their

Friends say doctors told Richie to slow down and rest ahead of the upcoming
birth. The source adds, “She’s been going at a frantic pace for months. Her
body let her know it was time to slow down and make the baby’s health her top
