British model Sophie Dahl and husband Jamie Cullum have welcomed their first child, daughter Lyra. The beauty, granddaughter of beloved author Roald Dahl, and the jazz singer married last year and announced they were to be parents in September.
Dahl's spokesperson has now announced the model gave birth to a baby girl on Wednesday, March 2. The representative says, "Their daughter Lyra was born on March 2. The couple will not be releasing any further information at this time."
The supermodel-turned-TV chef said in September 2010 that the pregnancy news was "the best present in the world". A so-called friend added, "Sophie has always been broody and she adores children. We all think she will be a superb mother and Jamie is also elated."
