    Nicole Richie admitted herself to Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles Wednesday with a serious case of pneumonia.

    The diminutive star has been sick for over a week, and friends tell Fox411 that they are worried, but relieved that Nicole is finally getting proper treatment.

    One friend told Fox411 that Richie, who had her second child, Sparrow, on September 9, began feeling achy as early as November 9.

    “Nicole began feeling sick, and has pretty much been in bed. She didn’t want to make a big deal out of it, but she was exhausted and couldn’t take care of Harlow and Sparrow the way she normally does,” the pal told Fox411. “Nicole spent most days in bed, and the kids were brought in to her, since she was feeling so icky.”

    Meanwhile, Nicole’s partner and baby daddy, Joel Madden, was working overseas with his brother, Benji.

    “Joel was out of the town the entire first week she was sick and he didn’t realize how serious it was. Friends were calling and stopping by to check in on her while Joel was away,” the source said. “When he got back he was worried and realized she didn’t have [just] a little flu bug.”

    So how did Richie get into such a state?

    “Nicole has been working very hard since giving birth to Sparrow in September. She really is a stay-at-home mom with the kids all day long and then she goes to work on her House of Harlow line,” said the insider. “She puts the kids to bed and then has a little quiet time to herself around 9pm. All the work and nonstop going out has been a lot for her right after giving birth.”

    So far it looks like her trip to the hospital is doing the trick, her friend says.

    “She’s doing better and getting great care,” the friend says. “It’s time for a speedy recovery.”
