Third time's a charm for Thandie Newton! The actress has added baby No. 3 to her growing brood — this time, a bouncing boy.

The For Colored Girls star announced her new addition on Twitter, sharing that she had a natural home birth and named her new addition Booker Jombe.

Newton wed British writer, director and producer Ol Parker in 1998. The couple already have two daughters together: Ripley, born in 2000, who was named after Sigourney Weaver's character in the Alien movies, and Nico, born in 2004, named after the German singer.
