For no reason other than cute fun, Nicole Richie and Joel Madden posed adorably with their little ones in some snapshots for her official website.

Nicole may not be friends with Paris Hilton, but she's got all the love and support she needs from what one of the cutest celeb families around!

Aren't these pictures of Nicole, Joel, their 23-month-old daughter Harlow and their adorable three-month-old son Sparrow just the sweetest?

Family fun with the Richie-Maddens.

On a side note, Nicole is rocking a new hairstyle that we're a fan of. Harlow's curls and smile just make us melt, too. Sparrow? He was recently born, so he's allowed to look a little confused. Joel? You look tired, man! Get some coffee!

Proud parents Nicole Richie and Joel Madden have debuted their little boy, Sparrow, to the world this week. Still a mystery? Why he's named Sparrow.

Posing with the cuddly 6-week-old in this week's People, Nicole and her longtime partner, Joel Madden, sort of address that subject in the magazine.

"We have different tastes in names," Nicole tells the celebrity news staple. "Sparrow was one we both liked. I liked the way it sounded with Harlow.

"There's also the Captain Jack Sparrow connection."

Joel adds, "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 Madden and Nicole Richie are proud parents of two extremely cute kids with two interesting names! Their explanations for said names? Equally puzzling.

So basically, Joel Madden wanted to name his son Sparrow not only aware he will be mocked for it, but in part BECAUSE of that fact. Awesome.

As for rumors going around the Internet that Joel and Nicole are actually secretly married, that doesn't seem to be true. At least not right now.

"One day I would love to get married," Nicole says. "It's not something we're talking about. If my kids ask me to get married, I'd get married."

This concludes today's celebrity baby name article. We now returned to regularly scheduled Balloon Boy / Jon Gosselin / Steve Phillips gossip.

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!

The newborn joins older sister Harlow, who was born in January 2008.

A Mom Again

Nicole Richie has enjoyed a new low-key lifestyle at home since the birth of Harlow, thoughstill keeps active with various business projects, including a maternity clothing line for A Pea in the Pod and her House of Harlow 1960 jewelry line.

The couple also run the Richie Madden Children's Foundation, which they launched in 2007 to provide grants to health-care and education non-profits.

"I don't think you can plan anything about having a child," Nicole Richie said in October 2008. "It's something completely new, so you just have to go with whatever works for you. There's a million different ways to be a mom."

We expect she'll handle it with flying colors yet again!
