Nicole Richie: Wild Child No More


Motherhood changes you for the better — and for former wild child Nicole Richie that could not be any truer.

Nicole turned 30 on Wednesday, a much more improved version of her hard-partying, heroin-snorting and self-absorbed persona prior to being a wife to Good Charlotte’s Joel Madden and mother to Harlow Winter Kate and Sparrow James Midnight.

She herself told ‘Harper’s Bazaar’ in 2008: “I owe [my] baby my life.”

And, her father, music icon Lionel Richie could not agree more, telling the magazine, “Motherhood has given her all the keys to understanding how her mother and I were trying to raise her. Now it has come full circle.”

Reminiscing on Nicole’s past, in Feb. 2003, the reality star was arrested in Malibu and charged with possession of heroin while driving without a license. After a stint in rehab, she received another DUI in Dec. 2006. In July 2007, she was sentenced to four days in jail, but served less than 2 hours due to overcrowding.

Her world started to turn for the better in Nov. 2006, when she began dating Madden and became a mother in Jan. 2008. The couple eventually got married in Dec. 2010.
