Lionel Richie's ok with being known as 'Nicole's dad'

09/24/2006 at 01:00 PM ET

Lionel Richie is used to people recognizing him for his musical success – but he says he is most proud to be recognized as Nicole‘s dad.

"It’s the hope of every parent, famous or not, to have your child upstage you. So I love it when a little girl in the airport screams, ‘That’s Nicole’s dad!’"

Earlier this month, Lionel released his eighth studio album Coming Home, which debuted at #6 on the Billboard chart.
