Family Photo: The Richie-Madden’s Pizza Run

10/08/2010 at 01:00 PM ET


Wonder what toppings they chose?

Joel Madden keeps a protective hand on daughter Harlow Winter Kate, 2½, after dining with fiancée Nicole Richie and son Sparrow James Midnight, 13 months, at California Pizza Kitchen in Hollywood, Calif. on Thursday.

The couple announced their engagement in February — although they “had been for awhile, so you’re all kind of late on that,” Madden said at the time.

Exactly how “black” or African American is Nicole Richie? I know she has AA and Mexican heritage but to what extent? I only ask because Harlow looks about 1/4 black, she could even pass for biracial.

Anyway I think she’s super cute, my favourite CB after Shiloh and Zahara.
Wish they had more pics of Sparrow though!

The Richie/Maddens are absolutely delicious!!! Harlow is such a cutie and she looks JUST like Nicole. “Row” is a HEARTBREAKER!!! ♥ this family. Can’t wait for them to get married. How adorable would these kids be dressed up in wedding attire???? Super cute!!!!

Harlow looks biracial. Sparrow has more of Joel coloring.
Nicole looked like a little black girl when she was younger. I think the straight blond hair throws people off, Nicole definitely has significant African American Heritage. Its especially obvious in Harlow.

Nicole states that she has zero Mexican heritage both race and culture wise. Human beings are not fraction problems. Is there a blood quantum system that you reference for racial labels?

Kitty on

I can’t take the cuteness !!!

Love the happy look on Harlow’s face!

Harlow is sooo adorable; happy walking hand-in-hand with Daddy!! Sparrow’s hair reminds me so much of my son’s hair at that age–so cute!

Lily on

I read that Nicole is 1/2 Caucasian, 1/4 African American, and 1/4 Mexican. She has very cute kids:)

WHOA! When did Harlow’s hair get so blonde? Anyway, she looks just like Nicole did when she was young, IMO. I can’t quite decide who Sparrow looks most like.

Emmy on

Harlow is such a cutie! I think she is the cutest celebrity baby! Sparrow is cutie too.

Julia on

You heard wrong Nicole has never said that she was Mexican in any way. Only Irish and African American.

Masha on

Er Julia, she’s Sheila E’s niece so I guess you’re wrong!

Lisa on

I don’t know where you all get your facts about about Nicole, but I thought her dad was the band leader from when Arsenio Hall when he had a talk show back in the 80’s who I thought was hispanic? I don’t know who her birth mother is though?

Rosalie on

What a sweetie.

alex on

nicole’s race always comes up because harlow has very distinctive african american features.

Lola Marie on

Ahhhh cuteness overload….my fav celeb family…they are just so adorable!!!

Jill on

She has repeatedly said she is part Mexican

Julia on

She has repeatedly said that she is African American and Irish and when Sheila E and her brother appeared on Wayne Brady’s Show, Nicole refused to meet with them and said she was not related to them. I think she should know. her biological father is black and white and her biological mother is the same.

Shannon on

Sheila E is part Mexican and part African American in case you did not know this.

We ran into this family last weekend at the park. Great, fun parents with lovely, kind children. Dad bent my ear about the kids, their age differences, his siblings and mom talked about pre-school. Very low-key and down to earth (unlike some other non-celebs at the park that day)
