Joel Madden: Harlow is Growing So Fast!

Joel Madden: Harlow is Growing So Fast!

Joel Madden recently blogged about how fast his daughter is growing and how much bad there is out in the world today. The Good Charlotte frontman also sent his condolences to Heath Ledger‘s friends and family. Check out his latest blog via DCMACollective:

“[Harlow] is already growing to fast! So I am at home writing this blog before i head to the DCMA store, and then the DEAD EXEC studio to work. I swear it’s so hard to leave during the day, but always so rewarding to come home to the little family. I’ve always been a guy who loves to love. Probably one of the things that define me outside of my work is LOVE. I had no idea what love even was until Harlow came along.

Me and her mother feel like the luckiest two people alive right now. This time in our life has been amazing. We both look at our little girl every single moment everyday and know there is nothing we wouldn’t do to protect her and her perfect little innocence. It seems like you turn on the TV, or get online and its all bad news.

We don’t want her to know any of that yet. I actually never want her to know any of the pain and suffering we see out in the world everyday, or how harsh people can be as a result of it. Having this baby has really made me realize we all start out that way, then somewhere along the way something happens and people go one way or the other. But all started out sweet and innocent just like my little daughter. The world could really make you bitter if you let it, but thats where music, and art come in to save the day.

You’ve got to surround yourself with the things you love. The whole point to DCMA and this site is a bunch of us friends doing what we love, surrounding ourselves with positivity. I want my kid to grow up around that.

My heart goes out to Heath Ledger’s family. Too young. too soon. too loved to be gone. It almost seems pointless to say this with the state of the media today, but I hope people will respect what his child and her mother are going thru right now and give them space. May God be with them.

So this one was especially long today on the writing side, I apologize it all just got me thinking.”

Check out the pictures below of Joel sporting a Gucci diaper bag and him modeling in the latest DCMA catalog:

    He seems like a cool cat. That was so sweet what he said about his daughter. Maybe this also has changed Nicole Richie for the better. I know that ever since she has been with him that she has changed alot but for the better. I wish them nothing much happiness and peace.

  • he sees ok

    I respect him more than I used to.

  • Sidney

    AWW!

    they are going to be FABULOUS parents.
    I can’t wait to see a picture of her (:

    Joel sounds incredibly filled with joy.
    Notice they send their empathy out to Heath, while herplex thread is all about her/movie.
    Keep growing Joel & Nicole.:smile:

    ITA. having children changes your life 4ever, for most of us for the best. Nicole you and your young family take care. Joel is correct about Heath, it’s tragic, to soon, to young. Thanks for news on this family JJ.

    congrats 2 him n nicole!
    :)

  • joel nic harlow yaaayyy

    I soooooooooo RESpect Joel -you gooooooooooooo!!!:smile:

    Love you Heath!

  • Please Daddy?

    He and Nicole are going to have serious conflicts regarding the “couture” that baby wears….skull and bones? Daddy needs to save his talent for being a new father to holding, changing diapers, feeding, and look forward to taking her to the park.

  • renee

    #19 I hear ya… Joel is enjoying his baby girl though, bless his heart. He’s got his diaper bag ready to go, lol. I’m loving hearing their good news concerning their little one.

    how swwet

  • http://californiahomeschoolin.blogspot.com/ oldschooling

    I’m with him please give Heaths family and friends some space to grieve. These cameras hounding them and throwing out a bunch of idiot questions is a bit disturbing

  • Miss windjammer

    His condolences to Heath’s family were nice. I definitely have gained a lot of respect for him.

    I can’t wait to see pictures of Harlow!

  • gret

    Not to busy to give his condolences to Heath L. and his family. I like him more and more. Course Nic’s my girl. Harlow W. you have two parents who clearly love you dearly, your dad is smitten.

  • heather

  • CG

    They are really two perfect parents…seems like Harlow is such an angel who came to their lives and changing them in to great ones…hope Harlow is going to be a good human being…BEST WISHES TO THIS FAMILY !

  • Ashley

    Aww, this is sweet. I’ve been a big fan of Good Charlotte for a long time so it’s been really interesting to watch Joel evolve to where he is now. It’s interesting to see how Nicole has changed, too. That baby definitely has two very loving parents! Good luck to them :)

  • mia
