Though I wasn’t a Nicole Ritchie fan before, I gotta admit she is a pretty cute mama. Love her dress!

Brandy on

She’s got the bag, the baby and the food. Nice of him to carry the juice. Haha!!

Harlow is so stinkin cute. Joel is just sexy and Nicole makes such a cute preggo.

Harlow certinaly is a cutie pie!
I love how Nicole always seems so happy now. Totally turned her life around, good for her!

OMG Harlow is getting so big and she could not be any cuter! Nicole is adorable and I love her pregnant! I love the dress, and I think she wore it before! She is all belly! She definitly is bigger than she was full term with Harlow. Wonder if the baby is a girl or a boy? Either way it will be adorable! Im guessing boy! I never realized how many tatoos Joel has! Ah Harlow’s Hair SOOOO CUTE!!!!!!

Doreen on

I love me some Richie-Madden family! Harlow brings a smile to my face everytime I see a picture of her, lol.

Nicole seems so happy and healthy! I am so proud of her for all of the changes she has made in the past few years!

Motherhood seems to fit Nicole. She radiates beauty as a woman. And although most of us second-time moms carry our child, she shouldn’t. Harlow is always smiling – must be from such loving parents. I’m not a big fan of Nicole, but for some reason I’m looking forward to the name she is choosing for this baby.

Wow joel it would be really nice if you grabbed the bag, or the takeout, or harlow. i mean seriously how awful for nicole to be in her third trimester and carrying a toddler and carrying a bag and carrying a box while joel just sips his drink.
i really hate seeing things like this in pictures and in real life. the pregnant woman could use hand dude!!!

L on

Oh seriously…#10…lol I hope that was a joke!

Harlow is sooo cuuute, I think Nicole looks gorgeous & HUGE…think its a boy!!

cas on

i love them!! harlow looks so happy

Sarah K. on

India, this is just one pic of several. He did end up holding Harlow actually. And considering everyone in this picture is smiling, I’m sure Nicole is just fine.

Anyways, they really grew on me. Nicole seems like a great mom and Harlow is the happiest kid.

Michelle on

I agree, India! That was my first thought too!

However, I love seeing pictures of this family! Nicole is so cute pregnant!

Mrs. R. on

She doesn’t look huge at all! I’m at week 39, and I am SURE she is smaller than me – those maxi dresses just always make a preggo belly look bigger than it really is.

Mary-Helen on

LOL, nice of him to carry the juice!

She doesn’t look overburdened or anything, and I’m sure if she was he would help out. But Harlow is the cutest and they look like they are enjoying the day!

Bancie1031 on

WOW … not sure if it’s just the dress or not …. but from this picture it looks like her baby bump has definitely gotten bigger😀
Beautiful Family

Nancy on

Harlow looks so big all of a sudden *giggle*. Too cute for words! Beautiful little girl!

kay on

I love Nicole’s dress, and Harlow’s smile is so sweet.

jessica on

wow what a cute family… Harlow’s turned into such a mini-nicole! Cant wait for the new baby to arrive it’ll sure be a cutie.

Shannon on

Maybe Harlow just wanted Mommy, and Nicole didn’t have time to hand off the other stuff before she picked her up. I know I couldn’t have waited if that little doll baby wanted me to pick her up!!!!! She is such a beautiful mommy, Harlow has got to be the cutest celeb baby, and Joel is one sexy dad!!!

Shirelle on

Harlow is the cutest baby I have ever seen! I love the name Harlow! I used to think Harlow only looked like Joel but know I see some Nicole in her.

Dee on

I love this family, but as soon as I saw the picture I knew the Joel bashing would start. People just enjoy how happy they look, Nicole does not seem to be upset about it.

daniela on

Love Nicole’s dress! She’s so tiny, she’s all baby! Wish I looked like that when I was preggers!🙂

Michelle on

People are just making an observation – no one is bashing, no one seems to that upset about it. Relax! oh, great friends of the family.

Jacquie on

I think it looks like he is offering to take something from Nicole in this picture. You have to remember this is just one second that is captured on film…he could have taken Harlow or some of the other stuff the very minute after this was taken for all we know.

Dee on

Michelle, yes I am as a matter of fact! thanks for pointing it out.

morgan on

Harlow wear’s a splendid blue pebble ombre sleevless dress

Lisa on

Great Pictures, I love this family!!!! As for Joel carrying Harlow? He did. In other pictures, you see him carrying Harlow. We don’t know anything from just one picture but all I know is how happy they look. It seems like Joel did something that made Nicole and Harlow laugh. In another pic that I saw it seems like he spilled his juice and that made Nicole and Harlow laugh. Cute Family.

Stacy on

Very cute..however, $54 on a dress? For the baby?? I honestly don’t know if I would pay $54 for a cotton dress for myself! Maybe if I had an excess of money..nope, probably still wouldn’t do it.

kate on

Ha! At first I wanted to say, “Hey why is Nicole carrying everything and everyone?” Then I realized, the same thing happens in our family…son only wants me to hold him and husband won’t notice that I’m carrying everything until I ask him to take the bag. Which he always does when I point it out!

jenny on

Brandy, your comment is funny!! At least you didn’t say it so seriously!! I give nicole about 3 weeks tops!

Terri on

LOL Brandy, I was thinking the same thing!
