Richie and BF Joel Madden are now parents of two -- daughter Harlow is now almost 2. Nicole tells the mag that her focus is on family now. "The only thing you want is for your kids to be healthy and happy, and they are. I'm right where I belong."
Nicole, 28, and Joel, 30, admit that they're "sleep deprived," but are grateful that daughter Harlow has welcomed her little brother with open arms. "I'm glad I had a girl before I had a boy," says Richie. "She just loves him so much." Joel chimes in, "She's very gentle with him."
