The Voice judge Joel Madden and his Hollywood wife Nicole Richie have decided to call Australia home!
Not long after Nicole landed in Sydney last week, the couple began inspecting schools for their two children 4 year old Harlow and 2 year old Sparrow!
In an exclusive interview with The Sunday Mail, Madden revealed: "We are looking at schools and we are talking about maybe leasing a place for the next year."
Joel is enjoying success in Australia thanks to his position as a coach on Nine's hit show The Voice.
He and his wife Nicole attended an exclusive VIP cocktail party at Bondi Icebergs last Thursday, joined by fellow coaches Delta Goodrem, Seal and Keith Urban.
"The kids, those are the only ones that I'm really protective of. One place that actually respects that in the world is Australia, which I love," Madden said.
"I love the light. I love the space. I love that, unlike LA, if you want to find good food and space, you don't have to drive to it. Life is easy living here," he added.
The Voice has been a runaway success for Nine, with nightly ratings well beyond two million viewers nationally.
