Joel Madden says that Nicole Richie is “the best mom I’ve ever seen” in the upcoming issue of People magazine. The couple just moved into a new LA home and are organizing a walk in LA to help end family homelessness. Throughout most of the interview, the couple gushed about their 9-month-old daughter, Harlow.
Nicole on Harlow: “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 responded: “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 added, “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.”
