New mom to Harlow (born January 11, 2008), Nicole Richie has been awarded the Golden Pacifier Award from Babytalk Magazine.
“Honoring Nicole Richie with a Babytalk Golden Pacifier Award might come as a surprise to some, but we felt that she deserved some recognition for her turnaround since becoming a mom.”
Ok! Magazine notes that the 26yr old mom and fiancee of Joel Madden, had changed her life for the better in the last year. Publicly dealing with her DUI arrest and brief jail time, she and Madden have come together to form the Richie-Madden Children’s Foundation. She has definitely parted ways with her past and is looking forward to her new life with Harlow and Joel.

“She’s grown up a lot since the arrival of little Harlow, and her creation of the Richie-Madden Children’s Foundation has demonstrated her efforts to set a good example by shining a spotlight on important issues affecting today’s families,” she says.
Ricki Lake has also been recognized this year for her home-birthing documentary, The Business of Being Born. In this piece, Ricki documents giving birth to Owen, her second son at her home (in her bathtub) with her midwife assisting.
“We gave Ricki Lake a Golden Pacifier this year for bravely sharing her birthing experience in The Business of Being Born, sparking a much-needed conversation about the state of modern childbirth.,” Lisa says. “She provided moms with a wonderful reminder that childbirth is about choices – it can, and should be, as individual as the child who punctuates it.”
