It is only fitting that Nicole Richie, who just became a mom for the second time, took to Twitter to tweet for joy about her new baby bird ... er, boy, Sparrow.

After the birth of their son yesterday Nicole and fiance Joel Madden each went online to express their love for themselves publicity Twitter itself their child.

"What a great day to come back on Twitter," Nicole wrote, somehow without sarcasm. "Thank you everyone for your well wishes. I love my family!!"

That's good. We wouldn't have believed it, and it probably wouldn't even be true if she hadn't written about it online for 639,351 of her closest friends.

Joel also lamely Twittered props to his son: "1st day of his life & my son is already a trending topic on twitter. That's right son, ur just like your old man."

We're happy the baby is healthy and all, guys, but get a life. Go hang out with Sparrow. Occasional updates are great, but so is the idea of moderation.

Is the nanny busy caring for the baby while you Twitter about it?

Harlow has yet to welcome Sparrow to the world on Twitter. Get on it, girl!

Here's something you won't read in any The Young and the Restless spoilers - Michelle Stafford is expecting her first child this December, via a surrogate!

Stafford, 43, has won two Emmys on the CBS daytime drama. She relied on a surrogate mother after struggling through fertility treatments and surgeries.

"After a three-year journey through hell, I'm elated, ecstatic and lucky to be able to announce I'm expecting my own child via surrogate," Stafford said.

She also confirms she's expecting a girl.

Michelle Stafford, who is single, first tried artificial insemination, then vitro fertilization. She looked into adopting after deciding to start her own family.

"I never wavered in my desire to be a mother," she says. "But I did waiver on aspects of the process. It was the hardest thing I've ever done in my life."

"This entire process has been very, very difficult to do on my own," Stafford says, "and has made me realize the importance and reason for a partner."

"Dating men and telling them I'm expecting in December is a little different," she adds. "I need to find someone who wants the same things as I do."

Congratulations to the expectant mom!

The actor credits his spouse and their children with helping him shake his former bad boy ways: "We continue to grow in our relationship," Wahlberg says.

"I was not prepared to be married ... at 20 or 30. Committing to making it work and all the things that go into building a foundation is where I'm at now."

"My family travels with me when I work most of the time or I go back and forth on the weekends," he said. "I've been pretty consistent about just making phone calls in the morning and then chasing the kids around in the afternoon."

Congratulations to the happy couple - and family!

After a pair of weddings in the last 12 months, are Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag headed to divorce court? If Heidi gets pregnant, Spencer says maybe.

"He said, 'That's the quickest way to divorce,'" the plastic princess told MTV News. "I said, 'No, sucker -you are officially locked in. What do you mean?'"

But Spencer Pratt says he isn't joking.

If she gets pregnant, "I told her there's a divorce or adoption," the PR guru, who says he plans on changing his name to King Spencer Pratt in the near future says. "If she's not down with the adoption, I think it's divorce."

Why doesn't he want a baby? "I'm a baby. I'm not prepared," he confesses. "And I'm not sure the world wants or needs a Spencer Pratt spawn."

That may be the first intelligent thing he's ever said.

Speidi Spawn

Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag browse the kids section at Kitson to pretend to be considering having children and stir up lots of good celebrity gossip reports.

Four months after their (legal) wedding, Spencer says Heidi Montag is "trying to have a baby like it's going to buy a new pair of Louis Vuittons."

We're not sure what that means, but she says she's "ready" for kids.

"I think I was born ready," says The Hills star. "I'm very maternal."

Truly, she is. Heidi Pratt is a regular Scott Disick.

"I'm very loving. I would be the best mom ever," she continued.

"[He feels] not quite the same, but maybe he doesn't know he wants kids yet... He says that he never wants kids, but maybe I'll have a surprise for him."

Watch out, Spencer. Looks like she could be planning to go Rielle Hunter style and pull the goalie on you when you least expect it. Double bag it, man.
