Nicole Richie recently posted a rare photo of her oldest child, Harlow Madden, who she shares with her husband, Joel Madden, in honor of her 13th birthday!
In addition to Harlow, they are also parents to Sparrow Madden, 11.
Nicole not only posted a sweet tribute to her teen, but also uploaded a super cute baby picture.
“Here you are at 3 months old,” the House of Harlow designer began. “Today you are 13. You light up my life with your presence, & have no problem lighting up my bedroom with your bright phone screen. Nothing is better than watching you become the young woman you are. I am so lucky I get to be your mom.”
And while both Nicole and Joel are mum on their private life, they recently shared their adoration for one another.
Back in December, the couple celebrated a milestone anniversary and the Good Charlotte band member couldn’t help but share the special occasion with his Instagram followers.
“10 years married with children,” he shared. “Thanks honey you make life sweet.”
But this was not the first time the star spoke on his marriage. In 2018, Joel informed The National how becoming a father and husband helped him be more secure in himself.
“They give me a reason to be OK with myself. I don’t feel the need to try and prove to the world that I’m anything at all, other than who I am to them,” he said at the time. “When I was younger, I think I felt like I needed to constantly sell something. I needed that validation, and that’s what my family gave me. It is the first time I’ve felt good enough.”
Nicole has also praised her partner. When speaking to Australia’s 60 Minutes, she had shared, “I would say that Joel is a very shy introvert, who loves life, who enjoys life, who loves music, has such a deep passion for music, and anybody who shares that same passion he will go above and beyond for.
She added, “He is a loyal person, who has the most incredible family values of anybody that I’ve ever met.”
