Nicole Richie and Joel Madden have been happily married for three and a half years, but the #CandidlyNicole star is the first to admit that it takes works to sustain a relationship. Nicole sat down with Oprah Winfrey for the July 27 episode of Oprah: Where Are They Now? to discuss her family life.
Oprah asked Nicole about the best and worst part about being married to the Good Charlotte rocker. "We met and we were partners from day one. And from the second we found out we were going to parents together, we looked at each other and we said, 'Okay, both of our parents are divorced. We both have had ups and downs with our parents and we don't really have a strong example of what a healthy family life is. But, we're recognizing that now, so let's work at it and let's go through this together as a team.' It's been great," Nicole said. "And I would say that's the easiest and hardest part."
The California-based couple are parents to daughter Harlow, 6, and son Sparrow, 4.
When it comes to motherhood, Nicole said, "There's always room for improvement." Almost daily, she said, she'll talk with other moms to figure out "the best way to have a strong relationship with our kids."
