Dave Grohl and wife Jordyn Blum welcomed their third child into the world earlier this month, a baby girl they named Ophelia.

The couple kept quiet about the news, without any public announcements except for a Facebook post on The David Grohl Alley Scholarship Program's page on Aug. 8. The joy of Grohl's new daughter follows sadness with the death of his father, James Grohl, on Aug. 6 to a long-term illness. US Weekly broke the news on Wednesday, nearly two weeks after the fact.

"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!!" read the post.

The Foo Fighters frontman and his wife of 11 years have two older daughters already: Violet Maye, 8, and Harper Willow, 5.
