James just shared the wonderful news that Layla gave birth to a little girl, Jade Valentina Bamford at 2:21pm (weight 7pounds 5 oz)! It seems quite fitting that she was born on January 17th as it is the birthdate of Muhammad Ali, one of James’ heroes.
Jade Valentina Bamford was born at 221 pm on January 17th….weighing in at 7 pounds, 5 oz. ….with a bad ass look on her face. Finally.

We hope mother, baby and James are well after such a long labour. A birthday on the 17th January makes her a Capricorn. She also shares a birthday with SGU’s David Blue.
This was one of my favourite songs as a kid, written by Stevie Wonder celebrating the birth of his daughter, Aisha. Kinda appropriate, don’t you think?
