Celebrities are known for their often unusual choices in baby names and Nicole Richie and Joel Madden are no exception – naming their new baby Sparrow James Midnight.
The reason behind the unique baby name choice may have come via a mysterious tweet on Joel’s twitter page.
Joel links to the song Sparrow by Simon and Garfunkel after tweeting the lyrics, “A song for a little songbird.”
He doesn’t state whether the song inspired the name, but it includes the lyrics, “Who will love a little Sparrow?”
Nicole, already mum to 20-month-old daughter Harlow, gave birth to the newest addition of the family on September 9th.
