Nicole Richie gave birth to her second child early Wednesday morning.

Sparrow Madden was born on September 9, weighing in at 7lbs 14oz. The couple has already taken to Twitter to communicate with fans, giving status updates and thanking well wishers for their comments. Nicole updated her status with,

“What a great day to come back on Twitter. Thank you everyone for your well wishes. I love my family!!”

And Joel is loving the fact that his son is already a trend setter: “1st day of his life & my son is already a trending topic on twitter. That’s right son, ur just like your old man.”

People have been speculating where the name may have come from, and with another twitter update, Joel gave us a clue, writing,”A song for the little songbird,” with a video posted of “Sparrow” from Simon & Garfunkel.

This is the second baby child for Nicole and Joel, who are also the proud parents of Harlow Winter Kate Madden. And while the celebrity couple has yet to release a photo of their baby son, I would check Twitter frequently, as it seems to be their communication outlet of choice.

We will keep an eye out for little Sparrow’s first photo!! Congrats to Nicole and Joel.
