Lionel Richie: I Can't Wait to Give Away the Bride

Now that the cats out of the bag, Nicole Richie's very proud father Lionel is talking about how excited he is that Nicole and Joel Madden have decided to tie the knot. And he's even more thrilled about walking his little girl down the aisle.

"I cannot wait to give away the bride," Lionel gushed to People magazine. "I am not sure who is luckier, Nicole and Joel to have each other, or me, to have both of them in my life," he says.

Lionel already felt blessed to have Nicole and Joel in his life, but they've also given him two adorable grandchildren, for which he'll always be grateful.

"My happiness for Nicole and Joel knows no boundaries," says Richie. "They have given me two beautiful grandchildren, Harlow and Sparrow, and have proven to be great parents."

Nicole and Joel are keeping the details of the wedding under wraps so we're going to rely on close friends to spill the beans. Congrats to the happy couple, can't wait to see Nicole walk down the aisle!
