Welcome Huckleberry Grylls!

photo by Martin Pope Congratulations to Bear and Shara Grylls, on the birth of their third son, Huckleberry Edward Jocelyne Grylls.

Huckleberry, who was born yesterday in UK, weighed 7 pounds, 7 ounces. He has two brothers, Jesse, and Marmaduke.

Kudos to Martin Pope for this outstanding photo of Bear, Shara, and Jesse Grylls. Check out Pope’s photos of the year, to see more of his excellent photos. My favorite is Jemima Khan, posing in front of a portrait of Catherine Macaulay at UK’s National Portrait Gallery, in London.

Update (June 21, 2009)

Bear Grylls revealed that Huckleberry was born on the family's barge. Grylls said:

“it all went fine and an hour later the blood and gore is gone and you’re there at home”
