Dave Grohl becomes father for third time

The Foo Fighters frontman and his wife Jordyn Blum announce baby Ophelia

Dave Grohl has become a father for the third time.

The Foo Fighters frontman and his wife Jordyn Blum welcomed a baby daughter into the world earlier this month, according to a post on the David Grohl Alley Scholarship Program’s Facebook page – his non-profit organisation.

The news follows a sadder event in Grohl’s life, after reports that the musician’s father died earlier this month (August 6) after what has been described as a long-term illness.

“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 Facebook post reads.

Grohl and Blum have been married for 11 years and have two older daughters – Violet Maye, 8, and Harper Willow, 5 (pictured above right).

Last week, Foo Fighters announced that their new album, ‘Sonic Highways’, will be released on November 10.
