Nicole Richie's bio on her Wikipedia page describes her as a "socialite, actress, author, singer and TV personality," active from 2003-present. We aren't sure how true any of that is, but she turns 28 today. Happy birthday, Nicole!

These days, Lionel Richie's daughter is perhaps best known as a mother herself - she and Joel Madden are parents to Harlow, 1, and Sparrow, two weeks.

Hey, it could be worse than being known as the mom of two of the cutest celebrity babies around, right? Here's a little photo tribute to the birthday girl:

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!

Already the proud parents of daughter Harlow Winter Kate, Nicole Richie and Joel Madden just became the proud parents of a baby boy this morning!

The couple wrote on her website:

"In the very early hours of September 9, 2009, Sparrow James Midnight Madden was born to Nicole Richie and Joel Madden. He weighs 7 lbs. 14 oz. Nicole, Joel, Harlow and Sparrow are all doing well. Thank you for all of your good wishes."

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!

Nicole Richie is known for her boho-chic style and her Hollywood pedigree - and with fans like Madonna wearing her House of Harlow 1960 jewelry line, her design career couldn’t be hotter. But it's about to get hotter still.

Hotter in a cute, maternal kind of way.

Pregnant with her second child (daughter Harlow Madden is 19 months old), the star has signed on to create (and model) a line of maternity clothes with Nicole's signature flair for A Pea in the Pod, a higher-end maternity fashion line.

Richie said that a collaboration was an easy call since “Pea in the Pod is such a known company for pregnant women. They carry great lines, and so when they asked me to create a line for them, I was really excited and eager to do it.”

Nicole Richie brings her unique style to the world of maternity clothes.

Being pregnant herself means Nicole is considerate of her customers: “You feel like you have to change your whole wardrobe - the last thing a woman wants to go through. So I really tried to make this line to get women excited.”

Nicole admits she doesn’t always wear maternity clothes, but thinks the pregnant form should be flaunted: “I think the pregnant body is beautiful, and I think you should show it off,” citing her jean cutoffs as a go-to this pregnancy.

What gets Nicole Richie all sorts of excited? Besides baby daughter Harlow and her unborn sibling on the way? The Britney Spears Circus tour, of course!

After viewing the Circus live, Nicole blogged:

“Friday night I went to the Britney Spears concert and had the time of my life! I have been a huge Britney Spears fan since I was 16 and have been to all of her concerts. I think I went to five of her shows on her last tour.

I have been looking forward to seeing her back on stage for years, and it was amazing! It was really hard to get pictures because she never stood still; I yelled and asked her to but she was too busy tending to her 50,000 other fans!"

Oh well, at least she had fun. Click to enlarge Britney Spears pics from her sold-out SoCal shows and see just what Nicole and others were fired up for:

Nicole Richie and Joel Madden are expecting another child, barely one year after the arrival of adorable daughter Harlow Madden (born January 11, 2008).

In a message on the official site of his band Good Charlotte, Madden said:

"I am so happy to tell everyone that Harlow is going to be a big sister! God has truly blessed my family. Hope [you're] all feeling as good as I am right now."

Madden's message is titled "Better than winning an OSCAR!" Hard to argue with him after seeing those adorable Harlow pictures from the other day!

After a famously wild childhood, Nicole Richie has credited the birth of daughter Harlow for leading her to a more tranquil life at home with Joel.

"She gives life a whole new meaning," the 27-year-old said of her baby girl.

Princess, Schmincess. Suri Cruise may be cute, but she's got some new competition for her title of cutest celebrity baby around. The challenger: Harlow Madden!

After Nicole Richie and her baby daughter were seen out and about in New York City this week, the celebrity gossip world's reaction could only be this: Awwww!

Everybody Together: Awww!

Harlow sure makes her mom smile - and has had a positive effect on her life in other ways, as well! Click to enlarge more photos of the two women in Joel Madden's life:

Sorry, Gossip Girl fans.

Nicole Richie won't be joining the cast of the CW's hip teen dram anytime soon. Her rep says it's "not true" she's planning to guest star.

Rumors began after the New York Daily News reported Wednesday that Richie "loves Gossip Girl and she wants a really b---hy, juicy role."

Although the part wouldn't have been a stretch - Richie played a bully on NBC's Chuck earlier this season - she's currently focusing on her new jewelry line, called (in a cute reference to her baby daughter), House of Harlow.

NO GOSSIP, GIRL: Nicole Richie is just plain happy - and healthier - these days!

If we've learned anything in two and a half years in this biz, it's that the celebrity news world is chock full of DUI arrests, plastic surgery and best of all, eating disorders. Stars binge and purge - or just starve themselves - like mad.

Well, we're happy to present a rare success story - a young celebrity who, in the not-so-distant past, was fast approaching refugee status, but who has since filled out to the point where she actually looks good in a bikini.

Take a look at the comparison of Nicole Richie now and 28 months ago (TMZ put this together). It's amazing what a steady relationship (with Joel Madden), a baby (Harlow) and eating regularly will do for a girl's figure. 

Keep up the good work, Nicole! And give Kate Bosworth a call ...

Nicole Richie bikini pics, then and now. We'll take the 12/08 model, thanks.

Today is Christmas, but for many of the stars we know and love, the best present ever came earlier this year. We are talking, of course, about celebrity babies!

Here's a delightful photo sure to put you in the holiday spirit. Check out this poignant moment with Jessica Alba, Cash Warren and their daughter, Honor ...

Jessica and Cash are just two of the new parents of 2008, of course.

Jamie Lynn Spears became America's hottest unwed teen mom when she welcomed little Maddie Briann (below, left). Bristol Palin may compete for that title, but hasn't given birth quite yet - though Sarah Palin welcomed baby Trig in April!

Elsewhere, Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves pooled their remarkable genes and created Levi, while many big stars, such as Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Lopez, Halle Berry, Nicole Richie and Nicole Kidman, became first-time mothers.
