She purees her own green beans and records her daughter’s every smile in a journal – making her “the best mom I’ve ever seen,” Joel Madden said of girlfriend Nicole Richie.
Nicole and Joel just moved into a new L.A. home after spending the summer touring with Joel’s Good Charlotte band and opened up to People magazine about 9-month-old, Harlow.
Nicole: “Harlow’s a delicate soul. She studies people. She’s very coy. People say that she and I make the same expressions. But everyone says she looks like Joel.”
Joel: “I’m cool with it, as long as she doesn’t look like me in a wig when she’s 16. I like that she looks like me – it’s my get-out-of-jail-free card.”
Nicole (on maternal responsibilities): “I think my sense of self is still the same. But I don’t do things, we do things. I work around her.”
Joel: “Nicole is completely dedicated. I do whatever she tells me to do. I’m cool with that. She’s really good with the baby. I’m really good with finances. All of Harlow’s education and all that stuff, I already have planned.”
Nicole (on marriage plans): “When we get married, everyone will know. It will happen when it happens.
Joel (on having more kids): “If it could be as easy as Harlow, sure.”
