Though Disney on Ice Presents: Dare to Dream at L.A.'s Staples Center was meant to entertain kids, a few grown-up celebs got in touch with their inner children backstage at the show.

Nicole Richie and Joel Madden, there with their children Harlow and Sparrow, snapped a fun photo with Disney's Princess Tiana. (Don't worry, Harlow and Sparrow got their turn with the princess, too!)

Richie was quite the star backstage, too: According to a source, several ice skaters asked to take a photo with her, and she kindly obliged.

Eric Dane and Rebecca Gayheart were also there with their daughter Billie – who dressed up as Cinderella and held a Cinderella doll – and baby Georgia, as well. Before leaving, both families donated diapers to Baby Buggy, a charity that benefits needy Los Angeles mothers, fathers and children. – Melody Chiu

Nicole Richie wants to make one thing clear about her new puppy: She's not picking up after it!

The Fashion Star judge and her husband, Joel Madden, brought home an 18-month-old German shepherd last week, but the responsibility is all Daddy's, she tells Ellen DeGeneres on Thursday's Ellen DeGeneres Show.

"I actually told Joel I don't want to pick up after anything ever again," Richie says. "I've got my kids, so I'm going to let you do that. It's his dog, but I like to, you know, snuggle. I like to hug him and kiss him."

Nicole Richie met hubby Joel Madden in Chicago, where he's touring with his band Good Charlotte – and she even brought the kids! But the couple made sure to get some alone time, dining out at Sunda, where she indulged in Grey Goose saketinis with some pals. The next day, Benji Madden met up with the band in time for the concert, where Nicole & Joel's son Sparrow was "rocking out to the music," a source says. Richie, Madden and their kids skipped the afterparty, though, jumping on a private tour bus to head to the next tour stop.
