Nicole Richie wants her children to have "stability."
The 30-year-old designer spent a lot of time on the road with her father Lionel Richie when she was growing up but wants Harlow, four, and three-year-old Sparrow - her kids with rocker husband Joel Madden - to spend most of their time at home.
"One of the biggest differences in the way I'm raising my kids versus the way I was raised is that I was on tour a lot. I don't really do that with my kids. It's important to me that they have stability. I like them to be home," she said.
However, Nicole - who has previously battled drug addiction - insists there was nothing "wrong" with the way she was raised by Lionel and her mother Brenda. "I was taken out of school and had tutors. By the time my father went onstage, I was asleep. There's no right or wrong way to raise a family. Look, I don't know anyone who can say they don't just try and do the best that they can do," she added.
Joel Madden and Nicole Richie are to emigrate to Australia.
The Good Charlotte is currently Down Under with his wife and their two children, Harlow, four, and two-year-old Sparrow, while he films the Australian version of The Voice and he is so taken with the country, he wants to make the move permanent.
"It's like home away from home. I would love citizenship, I've always talked about it. It's my favorite country in the world. We love it here, our kids love it here. Also, people are kind of getting used to us being here which is cool because it's a little bit more like a neighbor," he said.
The couple are said to have been looking at schools in the Sydney area to send Harlow and Sparrow to if they do decide to move. Fashion designer Nicole recently said she had fallen in love with Australia and wanted to spend more time in Sydney: "We're going to be out here for a while, both of us love it. Sydney is my favorite city, we're definitely going to be looking to spend more time here, what's not to love!"
Joel Madden asked Nicole Richie to marry him 10 times before she said yes. The Good Charlotte rocker has confessed his wife repeatedly spurned his proposals before finally agreeing to the knot with him in February 2010.
"My wife is pretty good at rejecting me. People don't know this but I asked her to marry me ten times before she actually said yes. I was asking every other Tuesday," he revealed in an interview during an appearance on an Australian radio show.
"What made that tenth one different? How did she break? What did you bring out that was different?" the radio host asked.
"I pulled out the kids! I said, 'Do you really wanna do this to these kids?' I'm just kidding. I'm passive aggressive," he answered.
The 33-year-old musician has two children, daughter Harlow, four, and two-year-old Sparrow, with Nicole, 30. Joel was recently announced as one of the four coaches on the Australian version of pop star search TV show The Voice.
Nicole Richie is "not ready" to have another child. The fashion designer hasn't ruled out having more kids with husband Joel Madden but says they are currently too busy with work and raising daughter Harlow, four, and son Sparrow, two.
"I'm not ready for baby number three - it's not something I'm discussing with Joel at the moment, but maybe we'll have another child sometime in the future. It's a full-time job taking care of two children but they mean everything to me. It's hard to balance being a full-time mum and having a career, but somehow you manage."
“To publicly point out a change in anyone’s body is mean-spirited and cruel. People’s bodies change and change again,” Nicole Richie offered this response on Friday after a rash of Internet rumors, perhaps sparked by a heavy lunch and an unflattering blouse, claimed that she might be expecting a third baby.
“I am not pregnant,” the former reality star announced to the press. “This is not newsworthy and is a waste of valuable media space that should be used for more important issues.”
Richie currently has two children with rocker Joel Madden, aged 3 and 1.

Lindsay Lohan could learn something from Nicole Richie, who recently extended her probation.
The socialite - who was put on probation in 2006 following a driving under the influence (DUI) offence, after being arrested for driving the wrong way down a Los Angeles motorway and failing a sobriety test - was told it wouldn’t be terminated next month as expected, because she hasn’t attended enough alcohol education classes.
According to her lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley - who appeared in a Los Angeles court yesterday - the 28-year-old starlet failed to complete the course because she has been too busy looking after her children Harlow, two, and nine-month-old Sparrow, her kids with her rocker fiance Joel Madden.
Her probation period has now been extended to March 2011, but the judge has promised to terminate it early if she completed the alcohol program before then. Despite the extension, Nicole has been praised for her work on the course so far. Her report states, “Her attitude is excellent.”
Nicole Richie is back in the hospital, and it has nothing to do with maternity.
The reality TV star was recently admitted after a string of days feeling under the weather. “Nicole has checked into Cedars-Sinai where she is being treated for pneumonia. She is doing well,” Nicole’s rep said.
Over the weekend, the mother of two had spoken about not feeling well. She wrote on her Twitter page: “ok cold, it’s been 6 days. Lets part ways graciously & keep it moving.”
Earlier this week, Nicole was granted a restraining order against two paparazzi who she claims caused her recent car accident. The 28-year-old socialite appeared in court to testify how the two male photographers, Eduardo Arrivabene and Ivon Miguel, had been hounding her constantly. The judge ruled the two men are to stay 50 yards away from Nicole and her two children for the next three years.

It’s time once again to congratulate those celebrities entering into parenthood:
Nicole Richie: The reality star and her rocker boyfriend, Joel Madden, kicked off 9-9-09 in the delivery room. The parents of daughter Harlow Winter Kate Madden added a baby boy to the family. Sparrow James Midnight Madden arrived early in the morning and weighed in at 7 lbs. 14 oz. His big sis will turn two years old this January.
Sources confirm that Nicole Richie has been admitted to a hospital to give birth to her second child.
The baby will be her and Joel Madden‘s second child—their first, Harlow, was born in January 2008.
While reps for both of the celebs have yet to officially comment, I doubt we’ll be hearing it any minute now.
