According to sources, new mom Nicole Richie is finding motherhood “overwhelming” without the help of her fiancé Joel Madden. Madden is currently on tour in Europe with his band ‘Good Charlotte.’ He also launched his own clothing line in Los Angeles.
“Nicole adores her daughter more than anything in the world. She’s just finding it a bit overwhelming being a mom 24/7,” says a source.
“Nicole would be happier if he [Joel] just focused on his clothing line,” an insider added. “His music takes him away from her and it’s difficult for her to be watching the baby alone while he’s out touring. Nicole doesn’t have a full-time nanny, so she’s watching the baby around the clock and it has taken a toll.”
