Nicole Richie was sticking out and about in Beverly Hills yesterday and caused quite the commotion! The tiny, swelling "Simple Life" star was enjoying an afternoon with a friend, and was bombarded with photog attention. There's a baby in there. A baby.

As Richie and her gal pal walked to their ride, her sidekick complained that somebody needed to pay for her $70 parking ticket. She then volunteered that one of the camera guys to pay her fine -- how about asking the multi-millionaire riding shotgun?!
