Dave Grohl's Baby Blues

Draped in a one-shouldered navy sateen dress, Jordyn Blum Grohl, 32, remained mum about her specific due date — “springtime” is all she’ll say — while posing with husband Dave Grohl on the Grammy red carpet last night in Los Angeles.

Foo Fighter Dave, who normally grabs a guitar and plays frontman these days, instead sat behind a drum kit as he did during his time with Nirvana, joining Paul McCartney for a rendition of “I Saw Her Standing There.”

Dave, 40, and Jordyn’s new baby will join big sister Violet Maye, 2 ½. Curious about Dave’s white knot on his lapel? Check out WhiteKnot.org.

She looks amazing! Love that color.

And love that he rocked the White Knot! Go Dave!

Ariana on

Jordyn looks absolutely radiant. I’m thinking a little boy for these two.

jk on

She looks gorgeous. We see them at Farmer’s Market all the time and they’re just a lovely family.
Dave was awesome last night and seeing him on the drums always brings back memories of Nirvana for me. He’s highly attractive by the way… ;o)

Anais on

I am so proud of Dave for getting to drum with one of his idols, Macca! I also love that he is supporting something very dear to my heart. Jordyn is gorgeous, as always. Can’t wait to see that kid!

Lou on

jordyn is HOT, pregnancy definately suits her, was good to see her chatting on tv, not sure i’ve ever heard her speak before last night!
Dave and Paul McC rocked that place’s socks off, the clip i saw looked awesome!

has anyone got any ideas how far along she looks?! i’m thinking 7-8 months? trying to figure out when bubba grohl 2:0 might be with us!

Ariana, i’m thinking boy too! cant wait for him/her to be born, Violet will be such a gorgeous big sister.

jk; consider me jealous! lol.

We’ve heard April, but can’t confirm b/c they don’t want to. Time will tell!

They’re both adorable, cannot wait to hear about baby #2. Violet Maye is such a great name, wonder what they will choose next?

Lou on

ooh april was my original guess, from the date they announced the pregnancy…the babies’ll have very similar birthdays if it is right, Vi is on the 15th of April!

cheers for the update CBB, much appreciated! x

LGD on

Anybody know where her dress is from?! She looks great!

Mia on

Aw, cute picture. Dave looks happy and Jordyn looks very pretty. I think the baby is due in April, so probably near big sister Vi’s birthday (can’t believe she’s going to be 3!). I’m thinking a boy for them too. Although another girl would be nice, all the other Foos have boys!

Michelle Z. on

She looks absolutely amazing – exactly how I wished I had looked when I was expecting. That color blue suits her.

Alex on

Dave seems to be doing the rounds of the British legends! He’s had playdates with Queen, Led Zep and now Sir Paul! He’s a lucky boy lol. And wow, how great does Jordyn look?? I’ve always thought Violet looks a lot like Dave, but looking at mummy here, she has a little mini-me! I’m laying my money on a boy this time, can’t wait to hear the news, only a couple of months to go now! Then Jordyn can send Dave back out on the road so we can enjoy him too!

Lou on

Alex; here here to your last comment!

Alhough may be a while yet before we get some Foo action, i did hear a little whisper (Taylor and his big mouth again lol) that they have already recorded a few bits and bobs, and are already writing stuff…which means when break IS over, they’ll be ready to his the ground running having practiced the hell out of the new stuff…YAY!!!

i’d love them to have a boy, would love to see a mini Dave as Violet looks so much like Jordyn, but have a feeling they might have another girl…whichever way it works out, i have no doubt he/she will be stunning just like Violet!

Oh,i’m SOOOOO excited, its like Gwen and Gavin’s pregnancy all over again for me,lol! cant wait to hear a name, dont think they’ll go for anything too wacky, they seem very traditional (saying that, so did Jen G+Ben A…)

time will tell i guess!!! eeekkkk!!

Kathleen on

That’s a cute picture!

I’m not 100% sure about when the baby’s due, but there was an article from 2004ish, where dave was asked what he’s name his children someday. He said Violet for a girl, and Harper for a boy..hmm..

Mia on

hmm.. Harper? I wonder if he’ll still use it since today it’s a very common/trendy girl’s name…although if they have a girl, they could still use the name Harper lol so I guess it’s win/win. I think we’ll be hearing a birth announcement late March/late April as the “springtime” would suggest (so at least March 21st/on). I just hope the baby’s delivery goes smoother than Violet’s!,they had a scary experience last time.

brooklyn on

Jordyn’s looks so radiant. Her dress is beautiful!

CelebBabyLover on

Mia- Well, techincally, we could be waiting until as late as early June to hear the birth announcement. Spring doesn’t offically end until June 20th or so (I forget the exact date of summer solstice). However, you do have a point. When most people say “spring”, they mean March-May.

That said, I think it would be cute if they had another girl. Then Violet Affleck (who I miss seeing lately. Have the paps finally stopped camping out outside her preschool?) and Violet Grohl would both have baby sisters.

Lou on

on the actual interview on E! she said ”early springtime”

march/april is looking likely, but we’ll find out in time! xx

Kelly on

I thought Dave rocked bangin the druyms with Paul! It was great🙂 He looks so happy here.

CelebBabyLover on

Lou- Actually, I think Seraphina Rose Elizabeth is still a very traditonal name.🙂

Lou on

CelebBabyLover; perhaps i worded it wrong…by not traditional i meant unusual, i like it as a name, but it isnt a name i had heard before J+B had her! apologies over confusion! xx

Mia on

Yes, early spring usually means around April/May, but furthmore, when they announced the pregnancy back in Oct./Nov. I believe it was also mentioned that the due date was April. It’s very similar timing to when Violet was born in 2006.
