She actually named her kid after Jack Sparrow?! That’s… crazy.


Her baby is so adorable. It is really awesome to see her and other celebrities like her snuggling and just loving on their babies. They really show their human side when they allow us in like this.

Happy 1st Birthday to Sparrow, God bless.


I would never name my kid after a bird. Why not pigeon or peacock? These celebrities are really getting ridiculous with these stupid names. It seems 1 is trying to out do the other to see who can pick the dumber name. But then again, look who it is and that explains it all.


Happy Birthday Sparrow! I Dont care what nobody says I love the name Sparrow it is unique and different.


I cant imagine anyone would name a boy “Sparrow”. What the hell can she be thinking? It’s just ridiculous. Hopefully he will find some way to change it to a boy’s name when he is old enough to realize his mother wanted to make a big show of her so-called bohemianism! Yeah, Trust Fund Bohemian


I read that it was JOEL’s idea to name him Sparrow, not Nicole’s. He said that he with his son growing up so privileged, he wanted him to have something he’d have to fight for and defend, hence the name Sparrow.
