Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl Announces Birth Of Third Daughter


Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has become a dad for the third time.

Dave and his wife Jordyn Blum are celebrating the birth of their third baby – and third daughter – on August 1. The new arrival has been named Ophelia, and joins big sisters Violet Maye, eight, and Harper Willow, five.

Ophelia's arrival was announced on the David Grohl Alley Scholarship Foundation Facebook page, just days after the sad news that Dave's father, James, had passed away at the age of 75.

The post read: "Bittersweet news - congratulations David Grohl and Jordyn Blum who have welcomed a new baby girl #3 Ophelia Grohl! The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away!"

The name Ophelia is of French origin, meaning 'Serpentine' and is also a character name from Shakespeare's Hamlet.

Dave and Jordyn married in August 2003, and had their first child, Violet-Maye, three years later.
