Thandie Newton Welcomes Baby No. 3: Booker Jombe Parker

The 2013 Toronto Film Festival - 'Half Of A Yellow Sun' Premiere

Congratulations to Thandie Newton and her husband Ol Parker who welcomed a baby boy on Monday (March 3). The actress tweeted the happy news the next day.

She wrote: “Our baby boy is finally here! Booker Jombe Parker. Born joyously at home yesterday.”

Baby Booker was born via home birth, assisted by a midwife.


The couple are already parents to two daughters Ripley, 13, and Nico, 9.

Last September while promoting her new film, Half of a Yellow Sun, at the Toronto International Film Festival – the actress looked radiant in a tight-fitted black and white dress.

“She couldn’t be more happy,” a source told US Weekly. “You can barely tell she has a bump and she’s been dressing different because of it.”

    Booker is a cute name but paired with Parker sounds awkward to me…he is probably adorable though !

    • Devon

      Yes the ‘ker’ ending in both the first and last names is a tongue twister.
