Joel and Nicole are heavier... and happier!
Hey, H there’s nothing wrong with a little extra padding! ..
It’s been 10 years since a seriously bony Nicole Richie was thrown in jail (albeit very b briefly!) while pregnant with her and now-hubby Joel Madden’s first b bub Harlow.
But fast-forward to t today, and life couldn’t be more different for the doting mum, who looks happier and healthier than she’s ever been.
Joel, too! The rock star was rocking quite the hot dad bod as he took on an inflatable water slide with kids Harlow, nine, and Sparrow, seven, during a holiday in Palm Beach, Florida earlier this month.
And according to a close family pal, Joel and Nicole’s comfy new bods are the result of loosening the reins on their previously ultra-strict diets.
“They’ve stopped depriving themselves of all their favourite foods. Burgers, tacos, you name it, these guys are eating it,” an insider tells NW.
“Th “They justj decidedd id d thath they’veh ’ reached that point in their lives where looking a certain way is no longer that important to them,” the source adds. “There’s so much to enjoy in life... and they’re doing exactly that!
“Joel jokes that he’s put on more than 20kg over the past couple of years... but he doesn’t give a f**k, to be honest.”
While Nicole, 35, is still on the slender side, she admits that she’s taken “huge leaps” from the scary-skinny frame she had in years gone by.
“Sh “She’s’ put on at leastl 10kg,10k but she needed it,” says the source, adding that Nic stays toned with regular Pilates.
“Joel loves the way she looks now. He loves her body and is so grateful she’s healthy.”
As for his own new curves, Joel’s wifey minds one bit!
“She loves Joel no matter what shape he’s in,” adds the insider. “She’s been poking fun that he’s got a total ‘dad bod’ now, but deep down she loves that he’s so cuddly. She calls him her ‘big teddy bear’.” Cute! n
