No, she didn’t throw one of her famous screaming fits at any photographers – it’s not that kind of bird. But what Nicole Richie did do was give birth to a beautiful and bouncing baby boy very early yesterday morning. I think I may start referring to the kid as “The Bird” from now on because she’s given him the most ridiculous name: Sparrow James Midnight Madden. Sparrow?! For real? I don’t understand why stars need to name their children such idiotic things. NATURE should not be used for NAMES, people!! I am very happy for them. (God, it felt like she was pregnant forever this time, didn’t it?) But I do truly wish that celebrities would start naming their children normal-sounding names. I thought Harlow was bad but this is just getting ridiculous. From Pop Eater,
“Richie wrote on her Web site: “In the middle of night, the very early hours of September 9, 2009, Sparrow James Midnight Madden was born to Nicole Richie and Joel Madden … He weighs 7lbs 14oz. Nicole, Joel, Harlow [their 19-month-old daughter] and Sparrow are all doing well. Thank you for all of your good wishes.”
Sparrow joins sister Harlow, who was born in January of 2008.
Following Harlow’s birth, Richie, 27, said that her new baby “gives life a whole new meaning and a whole new purpose.”
Rocker Madden, 31, agreed with Richie’s sentiments, telling PEOPLE that “having a baby is the most exciting thing that’s ever happened to me, and to us.”
2 babies in 2 years. Wow, those people are going to be very busy. I’d also be tempted to sneer about how Nicole and Joel won’t actually be raising the babies themselves. We all know how celebrities pop them out and almost immediately hand them over to the nannies. But, Nicole really proved herself after Harlow was born and you couldn’t open a newspaper without seeing her pushing the stroller along. Congratulations to Nicole, Joel, and Harlow!
