Lionel Richie found fatherhood immensely fulfilling; however, granddadhood took him by surprise and it would take some time before he adjusted to this new role. Now that he has experienced the joys of granddadhood, Lionel can't stop talking about Sofia Richie! She recently married music executive Elliot Grainge and Lionel was there to support his daughter on her special day! 1. He’s a Doting Grandad Lionel Richie is an international music icon renowned for over four decades. Throughout this period he has released over 11 studio albums, writing some of pop's biggest hits as well as currently touring and prepping his biggest UK tour to date. He is also an adorable grandad.

At that time, Peter Escovedo and Karen Moss, Nicole's biological parents, were close. Richie initially disliked the thought of becoming a grandpa, but has come to embrace his role and is currently delighted by gushing about Nicole and Harlow and Sparrow as much as possible. The singer is so protective of his two granddaughters that he won't allow Nicole to swear around them anymore; although, at times they would attempt to turn him in. Over time he realized being a grandfather means having fun while loving on your grandkids! Lionel has learned much from watching his children's children as children himself, and hopes to pass this joy along to his own grandchildren. He is a strong believer in family and has supported Nicole on her path back from addiction. He has stood by Nicole throughout her entire journey and is immensely proud of her. When Nicole began struggling with drug abuse, he stayed by her side at a rehabilitation facility before eventually arranging for her to move out so that she could receive proper treatment. Nicole Madden and Joel Madden currently share two young children together - daughters Harlow (14), and Sparrow (12). Richie does not plan to have another child, but would still like to give his daughters all of his love and wish them success in their future careers. 2.
