Dave Grohl has become a father for the third time, NME reports.

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.

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

    I just want to know how he has time for writing, touring, recording, a documentary, side projects, press events, AND raising three kids. Dave Grohl is a sorcerer. Only answer.
    Congratulations and sorry for the loss. Life gives, life takes.
    Hopefully all the great things happening this year for him and the band will help him through this loss.
    Poor girl has to grow up with the name of a girl who turned crazy after her father's death and then killed herself.
    Yep, I'm sure that will be on her mind every single minute of every day....
    Correct me if I'm wrong but you can't BECOME a father more than once right? When you are a father, you are a father you can't become multiple fathers. You are a father to multiple children not the other way around. Sorry to be all technical though CONGRATS DAVE!!!
    Its just a turn of phrase
    correct me if I'm wrong, but does a phrase ever "turn"? i mean, really-- doesn't it keep scrolling from left to right on the page like all the other phrases? i get that it wraps around when you reach the end of a line and it starts again on the next line below, but thats expected. thats not really a "turn"
    Don't be a smartass..
    Correct me if I'm wrong, but can an ass ever get "smart"? I mean really, I've never seen someone's posterior calculate math equations or write a novel. I get that it's a good idea to use it for sitting purposes or for excrement, but that's expect. That's not really "smart".
    He's becoming the father of a new person, so it is technically correct when you think about it that way.
    I think there will also be forth child. Dave probably still waiting for son.
