A member of [artist id="1003"]No Doubt[/artist] since the ska band's inception, guitarist Tom Dumont welcomed another member into his family early morning Saturday (February 19) with the birth of his third child, Koa Thomas Dumont, according to an announcement on the popular band's Twitter page.
"Koa Thomas Dumont was born this morning at 5am. Baby boy & parents are great," the band tweeted. "Looks like his brothers! One more No Doubt baby in the world!"
Koa Thomas joins Dumont's other two children, all with wife Mieke, siblings Ace Joseph (4) and Rio Atticus (2). He also joins a growing brood of No Doubt children (all the band members have kids), including Adrian Young's son Mason, bassist Tony Kanal's daughter Coco Reese, and Gwen Stefani's two sons with husband Gavin Rossdale, Kingston and Zuma.
"Congratulations to Tom and Mieke on the arrival of Baby Boy Koa!" read a message from band mates Tony, Gwen, and Adrian on Twitter. "We are so happy for you! Can't wait to meet him!!!"
2011 should be a busy year for No Doubt. Ten years after their last studio album, the band spent 2010 writing and recording their decade-in-the making follow-up.
"This process does take us awhile, it always has. Plus life is a little more complicated and busy than it was before we all had kids etc," Dumont wrote on the band's website on January 4. "So the goal is to write a couple songs more this year and of course finish recording all of them. We're really, really happy with the new songs and feel this great sense of momentum going into the new year."
