Nova, who shares her name with a song from the musician’s latest album ‘A Kind Revolution’, is Weller’s eighth child, and his third with Hannah, whom he married in 2010.
A post on Weller’s website reads: “The Weller family are proud to announce the birth of baby Nova, who was born at home on Saturday evening. She was caught by her daddy after a long and beautiful unassisted labour. Hannah and Nova are doing really well and everyone is enjoying getting to know little Miss Weller.”
Paul and Hannah Weller previously welcomed twin boys, John Paul and Bowie, in 2012. They met when Hannah, née Andrews, joined Weller as a backing singer on his ’22 Dreams’ tour.
Weller, 59, has five other children from previous relationships. The former Jam icon revealed in May that he has been working with Noel Gallagher on a potential Bond theme. He also slammed most modern guitar music as ‘insipid‘.
