Harry Potter author Jk Rowling last night (23JAN05) gave birth to her third child, an-unnamed girl.

Rowling and her husband DR NEIL MURRAY are "thrilled" by the birth - a little sister for 22-month-old DAVID and 11-year-old JESSICA, Rowling's daughter with first husband JORGE ARANTES.

During a chat with fans on her website last year (04), the British author - who recently finished the sixth Harry Potter book, HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF BLOOD PRINCE - said she had always wanted three children and "could not be happier".
