Nicole and her husband Joel Madden‘s kids Harlow, 4, and Sparrow, 2, are definitely both adorable, but the Fashion Star mentor reveals that when it comes to personality, they’re complete opposites.
“My daughter looks exactly like me, and she has Joel’s personality. She’s very careful,” says Nicole, 30. “She doesn’t make a move without fully thinking about what the consequences would be and what that means.”
Harlow’s little brother, meanwhile, tends to act more like his mom: “[Sparrow] looks exactly like Joel and has my personality. He’s just wild. I’m in for the ride. We’ve had broken fingers, we’ve been to the hospital – you cannot take your eye off of him for a second. He is just a full, free spirit.”
The former reality star seems to have changed a lot since her days starring in The Simple Life with her pal Paris Hilton. Reflecting on her life since then, Nicole says that getting to where she is today has just been a natural progression.
“You have to remember that I was 20 years old,” she notes. “I don’t know anybody who can look back at who they were at 20 and say, ‘I’m the exact same person.’ It’s all about evolving and growing. Who we are in our 30s is obviously very different than who we are in our 20s.”
