Nicole Richie gives birth to a son

Nicole adds to her nest with the arrival of a baby boy, Sparrow

Clearly not impressed with the most popular baby names as revealed yesterday, celeb mum Nicole Richie named her newborn boy Sparrow!


Nicole gave birth to her second child in the early hours of Wednesday morning, with Sparrow James Midnight Madden weighing in at 7lbs 14oz.

The blooming new mum and partner, Good Charlotte singer Joel Madden, released a statement confirming their chirpy news. “In the middle of the night, the very early hours of September 9, Sparrow James Midnight Madden was born to Nicole Richie and Joel Madden. Nicole, Joel, Harlow and Sparrow are all doing well. Thank you for all your good wishes.”

The celeb couple are already to parents to Harlow Winter Kate, 20 months, who’s name is equally as quirky!

The former rebellious socialite and Paris Hilton’s sidekick has really blossomed into a mum over the last few years. Her partying lifestyle has been replaced with low keys days out with her daughter and partner. Designing a maternity range for A Pea in A Pod last month and fronting her own jewellery label, Nicole is flourishing into a A-list business mum, with a fab sense of style.
