Yesterday evening Harry Potter author JK Rowling gave birth to a new addition to her family, a baby girl. No name has been announced yet but Rowling and her husband, Dr. Neil Murray, are said to be "thrilled" at the birth.
I'm sure we all want to congratulate Jo & her family, additional news will be posted on her site shortly.
UPDATE: JK Rowling has updated her web site with the name of her new daughter: Mackenzie Jean Rowling Murray.
From JK Rowling:
Thank you all so very much for your kind congratulations on various fansites, they mean more than you can know. I was planning to do a few more updates to this site when events overtook me on Sunday, so when I've got past the next feed or two, and maybe caught up on a little sleep, I shall make a few more tweaks. In the meantime, I hope you're all having as good a week as I am!
