Joel Madden & Nicole Richie: Proud Parents Of A Baby Girl!

nicole_richie240.jpgAccording to the hot press, Nicole Richie has popped the bun out of her oven, and Joel Madden is all smiles while welcoming the new baby girl into the world. The new baby girl’s name is Harlow Winter Kate Madden; a testament to the celebrity deft knack for picking the most ludicrous crap in the world to call their kids. From People:

Nicole Richie and her rocker boyfriend Joel Madden are the parents of a daughter, the couple’s rep at Handprint Entertainment tells PEOPLE.

Harlow Winter Kate Madden was born Friday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and weighed 6 lbs. 7 oz.

“The beautiful healthy baby girl left the hospital with her ecstatic parents,” says the rep, who confirmed the birth to PEOPLE exclusively.

Richie, 26, said she was pregnant in July, telling Diane Sawyer on Good Morning America: “I would really want to be someone my child wouldlook up to.”

Later, Richie, who had a famously wild childhood, said the idea of parenthood had made her more mature. “When I found out that I was pregnant, there was just something inside of me that felt a responsibility to mend any issues that I’ve had with my parents in the past, because, listen, I’ve put them through a lot,” she said.

As for Good Charlotte frontman Madden, 28, he told PEOPLE in November he was looking forward to being a dad. “Having a baby is the most exciting thing that’s ever happened to me, and to us,” he said.

And the new parents plan to teach their little one the value of generosity. In December, the couple started the Richie Madden Children’s Foundation to help the less fortunate. “We want our child to be a part of the community, and to know that there’s a responsibility to help the community,” Madden said at the time.

The couplehave yet to set a wedding date, but in September Madden said “marriage is in our future” – he just wasn’t sure when. “Right now our priority is our family and is the baby,” he said. “That’s all we’ve been thinking about. We are in love and are really happy.””

Awww. Nicole Richie really has come a long way since her days of acting like a moron on The Simple Life with Paris Hilton. Ironic that most of the material in the lyrical content performed by Good Charlotte seems pretty anti-Hollywood. Hopefully, Paris is following Nicole‘s good example. I mean, if someone as dingy as Nicole Richie can reform into the model personality she seems to present now, maybe Paris, and (dare I?!) possibly even Britney have hope.
