When Nicole Richie showed up at the DJ AM memorial last week, she looked almost ready to burst.

And she was. 

The 27-year-old Simple Lifer starlet and boyfriend Joel Madden welcomed son Sparrow James Midnight Madden in the wee hours this morning, Richie's publicist, Nicole Perna, confirms to E! News. The little bird tipped the scales at 7 pounds, 14 ounces.

Richie reportedly entered the hospital over the holiday weekend, and while her actual labor day came a little later, a note on her website says everyone is A-OK:

"Nicole, Joel, Harlow and Sparrow are all doing well. Thank you for all of your good wishes."

Richie and Madden—who have been dating since 2006 and planning their wedding since before the birth of daughter Harlow 19 months ago—announced the news of baby No. 2 back on Oscar Sunday.

The 30-year-old Good Charlotte frontman wrote on his blog, "What's better than winning an Oscar? I am so happy to tell everyone that Harlow is going to be a big sister! God has truly blessed my family!"

It's almost too bad—Richie makes maternity look fab...which is probably why she designs clothes for the expecting!
