"My wife is pretty good at rejecting me," the Good Charlotte rocker told Australian radio show "Fifi & Jules." "People don't know this but I asked her to marry me 10 times before she actually said yes. I was asking every other Tuesday," Madden revealed. The parents-of-two announced their engagement in February 2010 and tied the knot in December of that year. Persistence pays off!
''What made that tenth one different? How did she break? What did you bring out that was different?'' host Jules Lund asked. ''I pulled out the kids! I said, 'Do you really wanna do this to these kids?' I'm just kidding. I'm passive aggressive," Joel joked. Richie, 30, and Madden, 33, started dating back in December 2006. The coupled welcomed their first child, daughter Harlow in January 2008, and son Sparrow in September 2009.
Here's hoping popping the question 10 times means 10 times the happiness for Nicole and Joel!
