Thandie Newton is a mom of three! The actress and her husband Oi Parker welcomed their third child, a baby boy named Booker Jombe Parker on Monday, March 3. 

“Our baby boy is finally here! Booker Jombe Parker. Born joyously at home yesterday,” Newton, 41, tweeted on Tuesday. “My [third] home birth with brilliant independent midwife Caroline Flint —  and Carole Goddard at Phoenix Midwives. Keep independent midwifery alive!”

The couple, who wed in 1998, are already parents to daughters Nico, 9, and Ripley, 13. The girls were at the labor of their little brother, who weighed in at 8 lbs., Newton’s rep says. “Thandie and the baby are healthy and the family is thrilled,” the rep adds. Newton announced her pregnancy last September.
