Nicole Richie apparently feels like “a little girl” if she loses too much weight.

The TV star-turned-fashion designer has battled with her appearance in the past, and dropped to a size zero in 2006. Since giving birth to her two children, Harlow and Sparrow, Nicole has looked much healthier.

Having previously admitted that stress takes a toll on her appetite, Nicole’s spouse Joel Madden has been boosting her body confidence.

“Nicole loses her appetite when she’s stressed and she’s been busy juggling her work and home life. She feels she looks like a little girl when she’s too thin and her husband, Joel Madden, has been encouraging her to put on weight,” a source told British magazine Closer.

Nicole was recently pictured looking toned and healthy as she spent the day on the beach during a trip to the Caribbean. The 31-year-old happily showed off her trim physique in an elegant black bikini, and it seems regular workout sessions with celebrity fitness guru Tracy Anderson and a sensible eating regime have paid off.

“She’s spoken to celeb nutritionist Cynthia Pasquella, who advised having six small meals a day. She’s been eating calorie-dense meals such as bagels with cream cheese and baked potatoes with salad in small portions,” the source added. “She’s working out, but nowhere near as much as in the past – it’s 30 minutes of cardio and training to bulk up and work on muscle definition.”
