On Friday, Nicole Richie, 26, and her boyfriend Joel Madden, 28, became parents to a little girl named Harlow Winter Kate Madden, reports

The baby was born at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, weighing 6 lbs., 7 oz. After the big event, “the beautiful healthy baby girl left the hospital with her ecstatic parents,” the couple’s rep said.

“We are very blessed she’s healthy and beautiful and so good already,” the new dad gushed to the following day. The happy parents aren’t married, but they aren’t ruling out plans for a wedding in the future. In September, Richie said that for now, the most important things are her family and the baby.
