Nicole Richie has had a scary moment on her 40th birthday, with her hair catching fire as she blew out the candles on her cake.
The Simple Life star shared a video of the terrifying moment as she celebrated her milestone birthday surrounded by family and friends. Watch above.
“Well… so far 40 is 🔥,” she captioned her post.
“That’s hot,” Richie’s husband Joel Madden joked in the comments.
Meanwhile, several celebrity friends of the TV personality showed their concern, while others wished her a happy birthday in the comments.
The former party girl celebrated her birthday quietly with Madden, who she married in 2010, and their two kids: Harlow, 13, and Sparrow, 12.
The Good Charlotte bandmember, 42, wished Richie a happy birthday in a sweet tribute via his Instagram account.
“Happy Birthday Nicole❤️ You’ve made love feel timeless I’ve forgotten how old we are ❤️🥰,” he captioned his post.
In an interview on Oprah Winfrey’s Where Are They Now?, Richie candidly opened up about her marriage to Madden and how they work as a team to keep their family happy.
“We met and we were partners from day one. And from the second we found out we were going to be parents together, we looked at each other and we said, ‘Okay, both of our parents are divorced,” she said.
“We both have had ups and downs with our parents and we don’t really have a strong example of what a healthy family life is.”
“But, we’re recognising that now, so let’s work at it and let’s go through this together as a team,” she added. “It’s been great.”
