Nicole Richie & Joel Madden
ROCK'N'ROLL LOVERS

Nicole Richie & Joel Madden

Dec 2006 - current

 

First spotted out and about as a couple in late 2006, Nicole Richie and Joel Madden were getting hot and heavy in the privacy of Hollywood's infamous Chateau Marmont as early around the same time the Simple Life star was dealing with her second DUI offense in California. 

Richie would ultimately be sentenced to four days in jail for that crime - just four days before announcing to the world, on July 31st, 2007, that she and Joel were expecting their first child together

Five and a half months and an 82-minute jail stay later, Nicole and Joel welcomed their first child, a baby girl, into the world. Harlow Winter Kate Madden was born on January 11th, 2008.

And despite Joel declaring his non-existent plans to marry Nicole, their family would go on to add another memeber on September 9th, 2009. In the "early hours" of that morning, Nicole gave birth to hers and Joel's first born son - Sparrow James Midnight Madden.

The following year, it seemed Joel had changed his mind about the whole "not getting married" thing and proposed to the mother of his children. Richie revealed the big news in an interview with David Letterman on February 15th, 2010. 

They were eventually married several months later, in December 2010, in front of their family, some friends and - of all things - an elephant.

As of 2012, Joel and his family (Nicole included) relocated to Australia thanks to his gig as a mentor on the The Voice Australia. It's a safe bet, though, that they split their time down under with trips back to the states as Nicole has her own TV career in the form of VH1's comedy series Candidly Nicole.
