Born 9/9/09, Nicole Richie's newborn son Sparrow has an "extremely rare" birthdate, celeb numerologist Tania Gabrielle tells Usmagazine.com.
Numerologists refer to the number 9 as the number of life and as a signifier of "endings and beginnings," Gabrielle tells Us.

In addition, the number 9 "signifies love, compassion and family," she says. (It is also associated with arrogance and self-righteousness, she notes.)
So what does it mean that Richie's boy was born on such a special date?
Sparrow "will likely be highly creative" Gabrielle tells Us. "He could also be a leader. The child will have a lot of gifts."
