Six weeks after welcoming their first son, Nicole Richie and Joel Madden are showing off the latest addition to their family, Sparrow James Midnight Madden! Sparrow joins 21-month-old big sister Harlow.
“I couldn’t be happier,” Nicole told People magazine. “The only thing you want is for your kids to be healthy and happy, and they are. I’m right where I belong.”
In an interview at their home in Laurel Canyon in Los Angeles, Nicole, 28, and boyfriend Joel, 30, said they are deprived of sleep, but grateful their daughter Harlow is now fawning over a baby brother.
“I’m glad I had a girl before I had a boy,” said Nicole. “She just loves him so much.” Added Joel, “She’s very gentle with him.”
For much more on Nicole and Joel’s expanding family — including the decision to name their baby boy Sparrow, how Richie’s second pregnancy was different from her first, and how she’s losing her baby weight — pick up the latest issue of People magazine, on newsstands Friday.
