“Sparrow was one we both liked. I liked the way it sounded with Harlow, and there’s the Captain Jack Sparrow connection.” – Nicole on her son’s unique name choice.
“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.” – Joel on his son’s unique name choice.
“[Parenthood] was not in the plans. But it’s the best thing that’s ever happened to us. It was a gift from God. It was a big surprise but neither one of us even skipped a beat.” – Joel on parenthood.
