Richie seems to be doing well these days. An OK! insider previously spilled that her "favorite thing to do is to hang out at home with Joel, the kids and their animals."

"Nicole says she almost didn't make it — and that it's a miracle she's still alive," the insider said of Richie's history with addiction. "She calls herself a survivor. She went to hell and back and says she had to fight for her life with every ounce of strength she had."

The insider said that her marriage to the Good Charlotte rocker "is in an amazing place," and that the extra family time they got during lockdown "has only brought them closer."

"Nicole loves being a mom and would welcome the chance to have one more child," the insider spilled. "She has more energy now than ever, and she wants to build on the amazing life she already has. Giving her kids a little brother or sister would be the cherry on top."
