Nicole Richie and Joel Madden Take Sparrow Out to Lunch (PHOTOS)

Joel Madden and his little son Sparrow James joined Nicole Richie for a pre-Mother’s Day lunch in Studio City, California!

The one-year-old looked very comfortable in his father’s arms, dressed in an adorable red and white stripped shirt and a baseball cap. Meanwhile, his parents were ultra-casual, with Joel wearing a backwards cap and a tank top, and Nicole sporting a jean jacket and black leggings.

Sparrow’s dad is no stranger to Twitter, and lately he has been using the platform to show some thanks. 

Joel tweeted:

“I’ve been blessed. I have fun for a living. I have a family that loves me for me. And i have positive supportive friends. Thank you GOD.”

The Good Charlotte musician’s twin brother also tweeted his gratitude for his life, that Joel then retweeted. It read: 

Praise God for my Family,my Friends,my health&Music. And for my house and my New TV.”
