Christina Aguilera asks Nicole Richie for parenting advice.
The 'Candyman' singer - who gave birth to Max, her first child with husband Jordan Bratman, in January - has been meeting up with Nicole, who is mother to 10-month-old daughter Harlow, and admits she has picked up numerous motherhood tips from 'The Simple Life' star.
Christina said: "I didn't know much about Nicole, but because our little ones are born one day apart and through mutual friends I've had the opportunity of getting to know her and I was blown away with how great of a mom she is.
"I actually ask her for advice because she has a lot of great things that she does for her little one. She's a little stricter with toys than I am. She's a great woman."
Christina also defended Nicole - who was famous for her partying lifestyle before she began dating Good Charlotte rocker Joel Madden and falling pregnant - insisting the 27-year-old star has changed dramatically since having a baby.
The pop superstar added: "She doesn't go out so much, maybe she goes to dinners. It just is inevitable that you're going to grow when you have a little one, so anyone who's giving anybody grief for going out and partying, they're just trying to be negative and stir up drama and I have nothing but good things to say about Nicole. I have to say that."
