Lionel Richie Spills On Daughter Nicole And Granddaughter Harlow Winter

Nicole Richie loves being a mommy, her dad Lionel Richie told Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM radio show this morning. Of Harlow , Lionel (who referred to himself as "G-Pa") said, "That baby is the sweetest, most beautiful baby. Nicole's kid is amazing." Nicole, he said, "has turned into a full-fledged mom. It's the most frightening thing in the world because you keep thinking, 'Are you going out?' And [she's like], 'No, dad, can't go out! She has another feeding — I have to be right here!'"

Lionel said he learned of Nicole's pregnancy 15 seconds after she knew it. "Nicole and I are very close. She presents everything to me as, ‘Oh, my God, dad, you're not going to believe this!’ I sat down and said, 'How bad is it?' She said, 'I'm pregnant!' I said, 'Oh, my God!' and got tears in my eyes."

Lionel said the "funniest picture" was Nicole after she gave birth ."She had this look of her face," Lionel recalled, "and I said, 'And it doesn't come with a manual!'" Of Nicole's beau, Joel Madden, Lionel said he has his "fingers crossed" they'll get hitched. "This guy is so in tune with Nicole — I love him to death," Lionel said. "I couldn't ask for a better guy!" he added. "If there is a matrimony down the line, you'll know it first 'cuz I'll be telling everybody!"
