Ricky Schroder recently opened up about his eldest son, Holden’s, dirt bike accident near the family home. On impact with a truck, Holden’s helmet flew off and he was thrown through the air, sliding under the truck, where his skull hit the vehicle’s axle,
“It was the worst call,” Ricky, 38, said about the message he received over the phone from his son’s best friend.
When they arrived at the hospital, Ricky and his wife Andrea saw the severity of Holden’s condition,
“He was bleeding out of his head and his ear,” Andrea said. “He was shaking from the shock, and he was in pain. That was the worst for me, seeing my son suffering.”
After two surgeries and nearly a year of recovery, Holden pulled through. The teen is now adjusting back to his regular life as he enters his high school junior year and prepares for his SATs. The Schroders are sure to count their blessings after this serious accident,
“There’s nothing harder that we’ve been through,” Andrea said, adding that she and Ricky are now more cautious when it comes to their kids because, “You see how fragile life is.”
Ricky and Andrea Schroder have four children: Faith, 7, Cambry, 11, Luke, 15, and Holden, 16.

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.”
