Joel Madden talks winning over Nicole Richie!
Good Charlotte frontman Joel Madden has opened up about how he won over his wife of three years, fashionista Nicole Richie!
In a teaser clip for this weekend’s edition of ‘60 Minutes,’ the 34-year-old musician and coach on ‘The Voice Australia’ reveals that initially he wasn’t the “obvious choice.”
“I’m not like the tall, dark, handsome guy. But I think that it's once you get to know me, like how I got Nicole,” Madden says.
“We were friends, but I don’t think I’m the obvious choice.”
“I'm always like, ‘Just give me a shot, just give me one date.’ If I can get my foot in the door, that's how it's always been with girls. I've never been the obvious [choice]” he continues.
“That’s how it was with my wife, I just said, you know, ‘Gimme one shot.’”
His tactics obviously paid off – the two began dating in 2006 and married in December 2010. Nicole and Joel share two children, Harlow (4) and Sparrow (3).
