Nicole Richie takes full charge when caring for daughter Harlow, almost 2, and 1-month-old son Sparrow, insiders tell OK! “Nicole doesn’t like the idea of nannies raising her kids, so she and [partner] Joel Madden are very hands on,” notes one source. Adds another: “Joel jokes that he’s the official diaper changer.”

Nicole’s dad, Lionel Richie, 60, is also a big part of her baby team, bringing her over presents, holding the kids and singing them nursery rhymes.

In fact, Nicole jokes that Lionel and Joel, 30, should put out a children’s album together, since they sing to Harlow and Sparrow so much.
