Add one more person to the list of future readers of the Harry Potter series. The books’ author, J. K. Rowling, gave birth on Sunday to a daughter, Mackenzie Jean.

The new addition is Rowling’s third child, and her second with husband Neil Murray; in 2003, they had a son, David, and Rowling also has 11-year-old daughter, Jessica, from a previous marriage.

Rowling’s latest book, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, hits shelves July 16.
