Nicole Richie turned 35 on Wednesday, and she’s traded in the simple life for family life.

Joel Madden wished his wife a happy birthday on Instagram with a sweet and silly photo.

In the cute snap, the Good Charlotte rocker appears to be disinterested by Richie’s attempt at a smooch.

“Best Mom, Best Friend, Best Wife. Happy Birthday Nicole, you keep us all laughing…” he captioned the shot.

Madden, 37, also shared a stunning photo of the designer walking with a brown horse in a glamorous gold gown. “The Birthday Walk,” he wrote alongside the photo.

Nicole’s Changing Looks

The couple, who are parents to daughter Harlow, 8, and son Sparrow, 7, have a much different family than Madden did growing up.

The musician has shared that his father walked out on their family when he and brother Benji Madden were teens.

“When you grow up in a broken home, there’s something about finally find love and security in your family,” Madden says. “We’re grateful for our families and the love we have in our lives.”

Madden says starting his own family has changed his life.

“I give my wife a lot of credit. She’s an incredible partner and really supportive,” he says.
