Former James Bond villain and legendary 1990s musician Goldie has become a dad for a sixth time.

The 58-year-old DJ took to Instagram to reveal his wife Mika Price gave birth to their daughter, Yuki Isla Price, on Wednesday in Phuket, Thailand, where they live.

Goldie – who has 12-year-old daughter Sakuko with Canadian model Mika, as well as four other children with four different women – posted a picture of the couple and their newborn, and he wrote in the caption: ‘Welcome To The World Baby Girl. Yuki Isla Price. 10.07.2024. 3.11Kg. 10:36am Phuket, Thailand. We love you to the moon and back.’

The actor – who portrayed villain Mr. Bullion in the 1999 James Bond film The World is Not Enough – recently returned to the UK to perform at Glastonbury Festival, where appeared alongside fellow music pals including Noel Gallagher and Norman Cook.

In 2016, the star was awarded an MBE by the then-Prince Charles for his contribution to the British music industry.

He was honoured during an investiture ceremony at Buckingham Palace, under his real name Clifford Price.

Goldie said at the time: ‘Art and music is so important for young people – the arts need to be supported and I think there are so many Clifford Prices out there like me.

‘Music and art well and truly saved my life really – the light switched on when I discovered art.

‘This is where the work begins really. It’s nice to be recognised but it’s also nice to say, ‘That can work as leverage to make things better and change things.’

The star initially become known as a graffiti artist before releasing songs under pseudonym Rufige Kru, and then albums under his own name.

Goldie grew up in a children’s home in Walsall and moved to four different institutions, from which he was fostered twice.

Writing in the Telegraph in 2018, he said his traumatic childhood led to him being ‘not a great’ dad.

‘All of my children had a difficult time; I was not a great dad. But finding yoga later in my life has also helped me to reflect and find balance,’ he wrote.

One of Goldie’s son’s, Jamie Price, was handed a 21-year sentence in 2010 after he stabbed a man to death in a gang-related crime.

In 2022, Goldie chatted to Metro.co.uk about how people perceive him.

 ‘I do think I’m a bit of a rogue, I guess,’ he said. ‘I’m a bit mad, I’m hard to approach. Look, I’m the uncle that comes to the barbecue that no one wants at the barbecue because he’s going to tell the kids what it’s really like. That’s it. That’s the biggest misconception about me.

‘Listen, the door is always open, I just don’t take any of the nonsense. I’m not into nonsense music, I’m not into hype music, I’m not into any of that. Real music lasts and that’s the thing.

‘This is my quote, “a truthful idea will last in the honesty of time”. Put it on my tombstone.’
