Actress Nicole Richie is responding well to treatment for pneumonia in a US hospital, her publicist has announced.

The 28-year-old admitted herself to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on Wednesday.

Earlier this week, a judge granted her request for a restraining order against two celebrity photographers.

Richie, Paris Hilton's co-star in TV show The Simple Life and the daughter of singer Lionel Richie, gave birth to a son in September.

She and her partner Joel Madden, a member of rock band Good Charlotte, already have a daughter, who will be two in January.

In 2007, Richie served 82 minutes of a four-day jail sentence for driving under the influence of alcohol.

She announced her first pregnancy just days after receiving her prison term.
