    It's been a roller coaster of a month for Dave Grohl.

    The Foo Fighters frontman and his wife, Jordyn Blum, started the month off on a high note when they welcomed their third child Aug. 1.

    E! News can confirm the couple named their beautiful baby girl, Ophelia Saint Grohl. She joins big sisters Violet Maye, 8, and Harper Willow, 5.

    The exciting news, however, came just a few short days before Grohl lost his father to a long-term illness. Journalist James Grohl passed away Aug. 6. He was 75.

    "Bittersweet news - congratulations David Grohl and Jordyn Blum who have welcomed a new baby girl #3 Ophelia Grohl! The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away!!" the David Grohl Alley Scholarship Program posted on Facebook.

    The non-profit provides scholarships to children and young adults who have a passion for music and art.

    In addition to supporting his charity, Grohl has also stepped up to take part in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

    "Remember the reason. Create a world without ALS," Grohl proclaims in the hilarious three-minute video released Wednesday. He would later nominate Jack Black, John Travolta and Stephen King. To learn more about the challenge, visit the ALS website here
