Nicole Richie’s Advice for Pregnant Women: ‘Don’t Let Anyone Touch Your Stomach’

09/13/2016 at 01:15 PM ET


Nicole Richie is opening up about the ups and downs of parenthood — and pregnancy.

But in an exclusive interview for PEOPLE, the mom of two — son Sparrow is 7 and daughter Harlow is 8½ — she shares a tidbit of advice she’d give to someone who’s about to become a mom for the first time.

“I would say, ‘Don’t let anyone touch your stomach,’ ” says the fashion designer and former The Simple Life star, 34, whose husband is Good Charlotte‘s Joel Madden.

” ‘Don’t let everyone think they have the right to just touch you,’ ” she adds. “Who wants that? Nobody.”

Why Nicole Richie Refuses to Judge Other Moms: ‘There’s No One Right Way to Be a Mother’

08/04/2016 at 11:15 AM ET

Nicole Richie is raising some seriously independent kids — at the very least, when it comes to what they wear.

The House of Harlow 1960 designer, 34, tells PEOPLE that son Sparrow, 6½, and 8½-year-old daughter Harlow have very different approaches to their fashion choices.

“They dress themselves,” says Richie, who shares parenting duties with her husband, Good Charlotte member Joel Madden, 37. “Sparrow does his own thing. He likes to wear all black like his dad.”

It turns out Harlow is a bit more flexible than her brother when it comes to what she wears.

“She has her own style,” the mom of two adds. “She likes to experiment with different looks. I am totally fine with that. What she looks like is ultimately up to her.”

Nicole Richie on Supporting Working Moms: It’s ‘Comforting’ for Women to Hear It’s Hard

09/28/2015 at 11:00 AM ET

Nicole Richie isn’t sugarcoating the struggle of working moms.

“Saying that it is difficult sometimes is very comforting for other women to hear — just knowing that it is a juggle,” the mom of two told PEOPLE at the LEGO Dimensions launch party in New York City on Saturday.

Richie — mom to son Sparrow James Midnight, 6, and daughter Harlow Winter Kate, 7½ — spent a “very mellow” 34th birthday celebration with family and friends. But that’s a far cry from her usual day-to-day balancing act.

“It’s just about doing what you can, finding the balance in your own life,” she explains. “Every family is different, every household is set up differently and it’s just a constant game of prioritizing — it’s like a puzzle every day.”

When it comes to parenting, Nicole Richie is taking a trip down memory lane.

The mom of two recently told Sydney, Australia’s The Daily Telegraph, “I get to live my childhood all over again. My daughter is 7, so we’re starting to watch all the fun movies together, like The Sound of Music.”

Richie, 33, adds, “You know, I’ve been wanting to re-watch those movies, but I’ve been too embarrassed to watch them by myself.”

The fashion designer, who has two children, Harlow Winter Kate, 7, and Sparrow James Midnight, 5, with husband Joel Madden, seems like your typical mom, trying to figure it out as she goes, but loving it all the while.

“Every day I have to leave the house before 7 a.m.,” she says. “I have kids and I have to go straight to work. I can’t be that person who spends hours getting ready … I don’t like to do that.”

Besides being celebrities, what do Nicole Richie, Dave Grohl and Kenny ‘Babyface’ Edmonds all have common? They and their kids are big fans of Nickelodeon‘s The Fresh Beat Band.

And it’s easy to see why. The group, which consists of Kiki (Yvette Gonzalez-Nacer), Marina (Tara Perry), Twist (Jon Beavers) and Shout (Thomas Hobson), is known for both their upbeat tunes and colorful attire.

It’s obvious they love what they do, but all four members agree it’s always a thrill to learn they have a famous admirer. “The coolest thing that ever happened to me was when Dave Grohl introduced himself to me,” Beavers tells PEOPLE.

Hobson shares a similar story. “I met Laurence Fishburne in a spa of all places. He has a daughter who watches the show,” he says. “We had a very nice conversation.”
