Nicole Richie and Joel Madden could have named their son something simple like John, Tom or Chris, but they figured they'd give him a unique name like "Sparrow" instead to make his life more difficult.
Nicole gave birth to the couples son in September and they knew he would live a privileged life so they decided to make his life a little more complicated.
Joel said: “It reminded me of the Johnny Cash song ‘A Boy Named Sue’. My worry raising a son in Hollywood is, what will he have to struggle for? I wanted to give him a name that he’s going to have to stand up for. I love it, I think it’s a beautiful name.”
Joel also says he’s a amazed at how dedicated Nicole is to raising their family.
He told Britain’s OK! magazine: “While I’m working, it all piles on Nicole. She takes care of the kids, and it never gets to her. She doesn’t feel like she’s giving up anything – she is whole heartedly their mom.”
Nicole isn't just busy being a full time mom. The trendy star is busy working on her upcoming fashion line Winter Kate, which should be available sometime next year.
