It’s a boy for Joel and Nicole — and his name might remind you of a bird!

The healthy baby boy weighed in at 7lbs. 14oz.

“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,” a statement reads. “Nicole, Joel, Harlow and Sparrow are all doing well. Thank you for all of your good wishes.”
