Lionel Richie's daughter NICOLE has learned to exercise more caution before she speaks, after she asked a woman when her baby was due - only to learn she wasn't pregnant.

The Simple Life reality TV star, who is planning to launch a singing career in the near future, admits her efforts to be friendly quickly turned into a highly embarrassing situation.

She says, "One day I was talking to this woman, and it looked like she was nine months pregnant.

"I asked her about the baby, and it turned out she had given birth two weeks before that!"
