Nicole graces ‘Ocean Drive’ magazine’s March issue cover and says that she and her husband Joel Madden are ‘polar opposites’ but that her daughter Harlow is just like him!

Nicole Richie was once a wild child but those days are long gone. The 30-year-old fashion designer says her kids have totally grounded her and they keep her totally busy. We bet Hollymoms can totally relate to this!

“Joel [Madden] and I are complete polar opposites,” Nicole says. “He’s from southern Maryland. He’s very family-oriented. He grew up with four brothers and sisters. When we met, I was definitely going through a difficult time with my family, and having him have such a strong foundation really opened the doors and brought both of our families together.”

Although she has settled down, Nicole was once Paris Hilton‘s party partner in crime and the House of Harlow creator says her son Sparrow definitely has her spunk!

“My daughter [Harlow, 2,] looks exactly like me, and she has Joel’s personality,” Nicole says. “She’s very careful. She doesn’t make a move without fully thinking about what the consequences would be and what that means. Sparrow, 4, looks exactly like Joel and has my personality. He’s just wild. I’m in for the ride. He’s two, and 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.”

We bet Nicole is such a fun mom! For more on this interview check out the latest issue of Ocean Drive!
