Lionel Richie can't contain his happiness when asked about his growing family - he has spoken of his pride in his daughter NICOLE's latest offspring.
The socialite and boyfriend Joel Madden welcomed son Sparrow James Midnight Madden on Wednesday (09Sep09). The newborn is the pair's second child - they welcomed daughter Harlow Winter last year (08).
And the new addition has made the star's singing legend father burst with joy - because he's never seen his former hellraising daughter happier.
He tells People.com, "I am so proud of Nicole and Joel. (Nicole) is the happiest woman ever. She is just in total control. I'm the one that's nervous!
"He looks just like Harlow. All babies sort of look the same as their siblings, but this is identical."
