Nicole Richie has followed in Christina Aguilera’s footsteps and introduced the world to her baby daughter Harlow, on the cover of People magazine.
Richie and Joel Madden’s first child, Harlow Winter Kate Madden, was born on the same day as Aguilera’s son Max, January 12th, at Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre in Los Angeles.
“It’s almost like I don’t even remember what life was like before her. She gives life a whole new meaning and a whole new purpose” Richie tells People of her 6-week-old.
Good friend Rashida Jones says she’s “just the most perfect little thing!”
Ask daddy Joel and he says,”she’s definitely a mama’s girl, right now she needs mom because all she does is eat. I have a feeling that when she starts talking she’s going to be a daddy’s girl.”
Nicole and Joel donated their baby shower gifts to young mothers in need through their recently formed Madden-Richie Foundation.
Now, when we’re talking about Nicole, how can best friend Paris Hilton be left out?
When asked about the baby, Paris thinks the newborn takes after both her parents. “She looks like a miniature version of Nicole and Joel,” the heiress told Pagesix.com during a party for the new BlackBerry smartphone in New York.
Though she was silent whether or not she would be the godmother for Baby Harlow.
It’s not known how much People paid for the photos but this practice seems to be cooling down. The Aguilera cover of People, for which the singer was reportedly paid close to $2 million for, sold only 1.3 million copies. The average weekly sales for People is 1.4 million.
