Happy news for Thandie Newton and her husband Ol Parker! Thandie gave birth to her third child (and first boy) on Monday at her home with a midwife, and judging from her cool, calm and collected tweets, it sounds like her son’s birth went off without a hitch. Thandie took to Twitter to announce her newborn baby’s name.

On Tuesday she said, “Our baby boy is finally here! Booker Jombe Parker. Born joyously at home yesterday.” And if you were wondering if her other two births happened at home, you’re not alone. Thandie tweeted today, “My 3rd home birth with brilliant independent midwife Caroline Flint – and Carole Goddard @PhoenixMidwives. Keep independent midwifery alive!”

The actress and her director husband are also parents to two daughters: Ripley, 13-years-old, and Nico, 8-years-old.

Love all of those unique names, Thandie!
