Nicole Richie and Joel Madden Tweet About Sparrow

Nicole Richie and Joel Madden are expressing their parental pride the modern way, by—how else?—writing about it on Twitter.

Shortly after welcoming new son Sparrow James Midnight Madden into the world on Wednesday, Madden and Richie were tweeting their little hearts about about the new arrival.

“Guess who’s back … Oh i’m sorry we were only having a little baby boy,” Madden wrote. “1st day of his life & my son is already a trending topic on twitter. That’s right son, ur just like your old man.”

Madden also made sure to note, “Babies are like the human version of puppies.”

Hmm. Whatever you say, Joel. You’re the expert!

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

Aww, how cute. How long before Sparrow has his own Twitter account?
