Joel and Ni­cole are heav­ier... and hap­pier!

Hey, H there’s noth­ing wrong with a lit­tle ex­tra pad­ding! ..

NW - - Inside This Week -

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
