"I don't even remember what life was like before her," new mom Nicole Richie, 26, says of daughter Harlow Winter Kate, born Jan. 11. She gives life a whole new meaning and a whole new purpose".
I wanted a hippie name and he wanted a more Biblical name," Richie says – the uniqueness of Harlow stuck. "Harlow's a cool name because it feels like a classic name," Madden says, citing the actress Jean Harlow and model Shalom Harlow as two major inspirations".
"I'm with her all the time … I know when something's wrong," she explains. And to soothe Harlow, Richie and Joel Madden, 28, play her lullaby versions of Radiohead and Nirvana songs".
"I was watching her in her crib," says Richie. "And she happened to wake up and I was like, 'Good morning!'' And she smiled and it was the cutest thing ever."
"She's never out of my mind," says Richie. "I stop doing things for me anymore. Everything is for her."
