Joel Madden has been touring the world with his band Good Charlotte, and he recently shared his photo diary in Paper magazine. He's currently off in Germany for a few shows and will wrap things up with two concerts in the UK. Joel and his band are nearing the end after stopping in places like London — where he met up with a favorite doorman at the Connaught hotel — Amsterdam, and Budapest. One of Joel's sweetest pictures was a shot from just before he left LA, where he spent a special day with his kids, Harlow and Sparrow, as well as wife Nicole Richie. Joel captioned the shot with, "Saying goodbye is always hard. On my last day in LA before leaving on tour, I always try and take my wife and kids somewhere fun. This was taken on the Ferris wheel at Santa Monica Pier. Best day ever." He also shared a screenshot of his video-chatting with Harlow, which he called, "the very most important part of my day."
Nicole Richie and her kids, Harlow and Sparrow, visited a friend in Hollywood yesterday. The trio coordinated with all-black ensembles, and Nicole and Sparrow took their matching one step further with similar hats. Joel Madden didn't join his family for the outing, since he's now on the road with Good Charlotte. Their Summer tour kicked off just last week in San Diego, and Joel shared some quality time with Sparrow and Harlow at a park before taking off. He'll be overseas with the band through August, which means Nicole will be busy with their little ones. She also has her designing duties to focus on, and she recently shared the House of Harlow Fall lookbook.
Nicole Richie and Joel Madden headed to a park in LA Saturday with their well-dressed toddlers, Harlow and Sparrow. Harlow sprinted toward the jungle gym in one of her ballerina tutus before testing out the swings with help from Joel. Sparrow hung with Nicole on a teeter-totter and explored a sandbox while showing some pride for the Phillies, who are based not far from Joel's Maryland hometown. The foursome were joined by family friend and Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo as well as her daughter, Stella. It was a fun afternoon for busy parents Nicole and Joel. Nicole's been hard at work on her House of Harlow and Winter Kate lines, while Joel's prepping to hit the road again with Good Charlotte over the Summer in Indonesia.
Nicole Richie held onto Sparrow's hand on their way into a Chinese restaurant in LA yesterday. Big sister Harlow was close by with her nanny for the lunch trip. Nicole's taking care of things at home while Joel Madden is overseas. He's still traveling with his band, Good Charlotte, after Nicole and the kids joined them on the road in Northern CA. Nicole shared a video of their adventures this Spring, which included clips from their many stage stops. Nicole continued her concertgoing when she joined other celebrities at Coachella over the weekend.
Nicole Richie spent yesterday afternoon exploring Disneyland with her daughter, Harlow Madden. The girls were joined by Nicole's best friend, Kelly Sawyer, who tweeted about their "magical" day at the amusement park. Harlow enjoyed a ride on Nicole's shoulders to get a great view of Mickey, Minnie, and the fairy-tale princesses roaming the grounds before the group took a spin on the tea cups. Joel Madden was sad to miss out on the fun, but he couldn't be with Nicole and Harlow as he's off on the Good Charlotte tour. The visit gave Nicole an afternoon off from hitting the gym, where she's been logging long hours perfecting the Tracy Anderson method.
Nicole Richie soaked up the sun with Harlow and Sparrow at a park in LA yesterday. The threesome hit the swings and played in the sandbox during their latest family outing, though Joel Madden didn't make the trip. He's currently headed to Australia, where Good Charlotte has a string of tour dates lined up. Nicole followed up her fun day with a girl's night as she celebrated Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's TEXTILE line alongside Emma Roberts and Dakota Fanning.
Nicole Richie and Joel Madden each carried a kid on a cute family outing in LA yesterday. The designer and actress kicked off the weekend with a visit to the celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson's studio, toting a hot pink Balenciaga bag and sporting a leather jacket. On Sunday, she and Joel Madden brought their little ones Harlow and Sparrow to a toy shop. The couple shared some quality time with their children after a busy week of parties and pulling some playful April Fools' pranks with friends on Twitter.
Benji Madden helped Joel get Harlow and Sparrow through LAX this morning. The siblings and Good Charlotte bandmates headed out of town to kick off their US tour, and it looks like Joel's adorable kids are going along for the trip. Their first concert is in Atlanta tomorrow, but we'll have to wait and see if Nicole Richie joins them for their other stops around the country. She's been sticking to her fitness routine in LA and was spotted leaving the gym again yesterday. Nicole and Joel did fit in some couple's time before he hit the road, though, as they stepped out Sunday for Elton John's Oscars bash.
The Richie-Maddens divided to conquer their family errands in LA yesterday, with Nicole Richie heading off for her latest session with Tracy Anderson. Joel Madden, who's back in California on a break from his world tour with Good Charlotte, headed to a Whole Foods with Harlow to pick up groceries. Nicole works hard to stay in cover-girl shape, and her latest magazine appearance in Harper's Bazaar Russia was just released. Another of Tracy's star clients, Jessica Simpson, was also spotted leaving her fitness center in the afternoon, perhaps having gotten a few tips from star pupil Nicole.
Nicole Richie held her daughter Harlow's hand and carried her son Sparrow as they left a playground in LA yesterday. The trio were off for a playdate without dad Joel Madden, who has been touring with Good Charlotte. He's away from his wife and kids on Valentine's Day, but he did tweet a sweet holiday message to his loved ones. Nicole has been busy herself balancing play dates with her little ballerina and superhero while promoting her new Winter Kate and House of Harlow collections. She skipped out on New York Fashion Week to spend the weekend on the West Coast, but she'll be back to the Big Apple to co-host The View tomorrow morning.
