Jamie Cullum and Sophie Dahl announce birth of second daughter
Thursday 07 March 2013
Jazz star Jamie Cullum has become a father for a second time after wife Sophie Dahl gave birth to another daughter.
The pianist and singer broke the news to fans with a message on Twitter and said the baby, called Margot, had been born on Monday - just two days after her sister's birthday.
He said the couple were "completely thrilled".
Cullum and model turned writer and TV cook Dahl married in 2010 and their first child Lyra was born two years ago.
In his Tweet he wrote: "On March 4th sophiedahl gave birth to our second baby girl, Margot Cullum.
"She is healthy and gorgeous and we are completely thrilled."
Cullum recently signed a new record deal with Island Records and last month released his first new recording for three years as a free download, a cover of Cole Porter's Love For Sale which he recorded with rapper Roots Manuva.
He is expected to announce details of a new album soon.
