Joel Madden tweets how son Sparrow got his name

Nicole Richie’s partner uses Twitter to hint at unique name choice for their son

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.
