To the publication Nicole shared her feeling on putting Harlow on the cover of People magazine, saying "The day before it came out, I was nervous, because there was going to be a picture of my daughter everywhere. But if I didn't put a picture out, it would have been 10 times worse. I wanted to stop people trying to get pictures of her. I was just being a protective mom."
