Ever wonder why Joel Madden decided to call his son Sparrow? Apparently he wanted to make life tough on him.
Talking to Britain’s OK! magazine he said, “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.”
Madden also said that Nicole Richie is a wonderful hands on mom.
“While I’m working, it all piles on Nicole. She takes care of the kids, and it never gets to her. She doesn’t feel like she’s giving up anything – she is wholeheartedly their mom.”
Nicole better be there to wipe away tears when little Sparrow comes home crying from kids ridiculing his name!
