I had no idea Nicole even had any siblings – it’s remarkable that she lives and carries herself as SUCH an only child!

Are we sure Nicole is adopted.
That is her half sister from Lionel’s second marriage right?

I don’t know but they look like blood sisters…anyways, cute to see them all hang out 🙂

Laura on

But she has 2 half siblings from Lionel’s second marriage. Thats her half sister Sofia

I love Nicole she is awsome. she will be a great mom

karen on

wouldn’t a 1/2 sibling imply that they have one parent in common? Nicole is adopted, and that little girl is Lionels daughter so that would make them sisters…or technically adopted sisters.

How on Earth would Nicole be considered an only child when Lionel has two children from his second marriage?

Michelle on

well, she is Brenda Richie’s only child.

And they are half sisters.
Even though Sofia is half black and Nicole is quarter black, they do look similar. But that happens a lot in adopted families, everybody starts to look alike after a while…

cute pics by the way….thanks

Sofia is beautiful, and yes looks a lot like nicole did as a child. I’ve seen a lot of pics of nicole with sofia, they seem close. Nicole looks adorable too.

I love the name Sofia.

Nicole’s what, 25? And Sofia looks only about 10 or so, so even if Nicole was adopted, she was Lionel’s only child for maybe almost the first 13-15 yrs of her life…so it’s no wonder that she still acts like an “only child” for publicity sake. I’m glad though that she does get along with her younger siblings enough to go out with them sometimes. (Or maybe she thinks her little sister’s finally old enough to hang out with w/o acting like a little kid while out shopping. If that’s the case, Nicole will have a lot to learn about being a mother. lol! Otherwise maybe she’d just wanted to shield her sister from the paparazzi, until now.)

Either way, I can tell Sophia is Lionel’s daughter because she actually sort of looks like him a little. lol. Although I agree, her complextion is more similar to Nicole.

Adopted…step…half…or full-blood – a sister is a sister!
