Nicole considers Lionel her real father and has referred to him as such through the years. According to Huffington Post, after meeting a 2-year-old Nicole at a Prince concert and realizing her “family situation was falling apart,” Lionel reached out to help her parents. “I think we decided that . . . what we’ll do to kind of give you some stability was we’ll be like legal guardians, but nothing more,” he told Nicole during a 2016 episode of the publication’s “Talk To Me” series.

In 2013, Nicole spent Father’s Day with Lionel and her sister, Sofia Richie, which she documented on her online “#CandidlyNicole” series. Lionel actually credits Nicole for changing his life and defended her adoption in his People interview, saying, “She was a little girl who needed a shot.” The Commodores singer added, “She was used to people coming and going. She looked at me and I’d say, ‘I’m not going anywhere.'”

Lionel celebrated Nicole’s birthday in 2021 with a sweet message on Instagram. “It’s showtime !! ⭐️ @nicolerichie You have been rainbows 🌈 and butterflies 🦋 your whole life … but you will always be my little girl, no matter how many birthdays we celebrate 🎉 !! 🎂,” he captioned a series of throwback pics.

To this day, Nicole still shows her love for dad Lionel, most recently at one of his shows. On Sept. 18, the singer posted an Instagram video of his two daughters screaming his name and dancing while he performed onstage. He captioned it, “Take your Kids to Work Day turned out well… 😂.”
