Nicole Richie is determined to carry on working despite being eight months pregnant.
'The Simple Life' star due to give birth to her first child with fiancé Joel Madden on New Year's Eve, but she isn't planning on slowing down until the very last minute.
She told US TV show 'Access Hollywood': "I remember walking into the office and telling my managers, 'I think at around five or six months I'm probably going to be really tired and I'm not going to want to do a lot.' But I've been totally fine. I've been up and at them every single day and I've been ready to go.
"You just have to listen to what your body tells you. But so far I've been great. I haven't slowed down yet!"
The 26-year-old mother-to-be also explained her reasons behind setting up the Richie Madden Children's Foundation and raising $25,000 for young mothers in need.
She said: "This obviously came as a function of being pregnant. On the poster it says 'In honour of baby Madden.' There is a natural feeling that comes with being pregnant. You just want to protect your baby."
