Dave Grohl & Wife Welcome Baby No. 3: Ophelia Saint

Congratulations to Dave Grohl and Jordyn Blum.

The Foo Fighters frontman, 45, and his wife welcomed their third child, a daughter named Ophelia Saint Grohl, on August 1.

The happy news comes just days after Grohl lost his father, James Grohl, on Aug. 6 to a longterm 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!!” reads an announcement on The David Grohl Alley Scholarship Program’s Facebook page.

The couple, who wed in 2003, are also parents to daughters Violet, 8, and Harper, 5.

    Ophelia saint is a terrible name.everyone thought summer rain was bad.

    • Louise

      Shakespeare used the name, you think he had a bad taste..? :-).

  • Anony

    YOU may not like the name but it’s an ACTUAL name and not made up or something named after a bird or bug.

  • Rachael

    I like the name Ophelia, it’s pretty and a heroine in shakespeare’s hamlet. Think the name means “help”. Not sure on Saint though!

    What a cute name and different too! Congrats!

  • Louise

    Love that they’re still together after so many years, with the rocker’s undoubtably busy schedule, and even have another child!

  • Gretchen

    I love Saint for a middle name!

  • Mary

    How pretentious using that name!

    • Louise

      I agree, and Pete Wentz used it even as the first name for his son… Ugh!

    • Isabel

      I fail to understand what’s pretentious about them choosing a beautiful name for their daughter.

  • pooper
