Nicole Richie is one powerhouse mom and wife! The fashionista, who has been married to Good Charlotte's Joel Madden for three and half years, is now sitting down and opening up on all things Nicole to Oprah Winfrey for an episode Oprah: Where Are They Now?

The #CandidlyNicole got personal with the media mogul, discussing her family life and the best and worst part of marriage.

    "We met and we were partners from day one. And from the second we found out we were going to parents together, we looked at each other and we said, 'Okay, both of our parents are divorced. We both have had ups and downs with our parents and we don't really have a strong example of what a healthy family life is. But, we're recognizing that now, so let's work at it and let's go through this together as a team.' It's been great," Nicole said. "And I would say that's the easiest and hardest part."

The duo are parents to daughter 6-year-old Harlow, 4-year-old Sparrow.

The mom of two also talked about how she parents, "I have to always come from a place of love and compassion with them." The former party girl added, "My kids operate best when I let them have a voice. I really explain things to them, because really, kids want to be told the truth. They just do. They just want you to be truthful."

Sounds like good stuff to us!
