Joel Madden: Wife Richie is unstoppable

Joel Madden and Nicole Richie

Joel Madden believes his wife Nicole Richie is "one of the strongest women he's ever met."

The Good Charlotte musician and the fashion designer married in 2010. Nicole and Joel share two children together, daughter Harlow, four, and son Sparrow, three.

Joel is in awe of Nicole's resilience.

"My daughter - I hope she's like her mom because her mom is one of the strongest women I've ever met," Joel revealed during an interview on Shane Power's show Pop Goes the Culture on the HAHAJK podcast network.

"You cannot f**k with her. You can't f**k with Nicole, even if you think you are f**king with her. I've never met anyone on her level. She's just on a whole other level. I just hope that Harlow is like that."

Joel is pious and prays frequently with his children before meals and at bedtime.

Should Harlow and Sparrow choose not to adopt Joel's religion when they grow older, the star wouldn't mind.

"I've gotten a lot of strength out of my faith, it's given me strength in times when I needed it. So my own kind of wants for my kids is to have that foundation if that was where she wanted to go," he explained.

"I love my daughter more than I love myself, and that would be a selfish decision to punish her for not believing in something that I believe."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Leo:

Don't get involved with a hidden intrigue. The drama will be exciting at first, but eventually you will tire of keeping secrets. If someone is interested in you romantically, you shouldn't have to sneak around together. An oppressive work situation may tempt you to quit your job. Try not to discuss your plans with colleagues. You don't want a rival to tell your employer about your resignation until you're ready to tender it. Protect your interests at all costs.More
