(KP International) Apparently Nicole Richie and Brody Jenner's relationship isn't as new as everyone thinks. According to Richie's father, Lionel, the two have known each other all their lives.
"I was there when [Brody] was born!" Lionel Richie said to People magazine. "They grew up together. To see them together now is like, 'Where are you going with this?' But they're having a wonderful time."
It seems Lionel has been a friend of The Princes of Malibu star's parents songwriter Linda Thompson and Olympic track athlete Bruce Jenner for ages.
"They are a very normal couple and Brody is a decent, nice, down-to-earth guy," a source told People. "Even though it's relatively new, it seems like they've been together forever."
Both Richie and Jenner had split from fellow celebs DJ AM and former Laguna Beach star Kristin Cavallari respectively before falling into each other's arms.
