Dave Grohl welcomes third daughter

The 45-year-old Foo Fighter star’s wife Jordyn Blum gave birth to baby girl, Ophelia Saint Grohl, on Aug. 1, E! News reports. Dave is also father to Violet Maye (8), and Harper Willow (5). The happy news follows the frontman’s loss of his father, James, who passed away at the age of 75 on August 6. “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 David Grohl Alley Scholarship Program Facebook page shared.

‘Congratulations David Grohl and Jordyn Blum who have welcomed a new baby girl #3 Ophelia Grohl!’

Dave and Jordyn have been married for 11 years. Earlier this year, the expecting mother was apparently having trouble choosing a name for her third daughter since she used her favourite names for her first two children, an insider told Us Weekly.

The musician has cited the Beatles as a huge source of inspiration and has passed his love for the band on to his children.

"I can honestly say that if it weren't for the Beatles, I would not be a musician,” he previously explained on CBS’s The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to the Beatles. "Paul's rolling bass line, the trademark Ringo drum fills, George's gritty distorted guitar and that sound that only the back of John Lennon's throat could produce. This is for my Mom's favourite band, my favourite band and now my daughter's favourite band."

Dave has been working on the Foo Fighters’s latest album, Sonic Highways, which is scheduled for release on November 10.
