Clapton, Wife Have Third Child

Eric Clapton's (search) wife has given birth to the couple's third child, a spokesman for the rock guitarist said Friday.

The Sun newspaper reported that Clapton's American wife, Melia McEnery (search), gave birth to a daughter in a London hospital on Tuesday. Clapton's spokesman, Andy Prevezer, said only that "there has been a birth" and gave no other details.

The 59-year-old singer-songwriter has two young daughters with McEnery and a 19-year-old daughter, Ruth, from a previous relationship.

His 4-year-old son, Conor, died when he fell from a New York apartment in 1991.
