News of the birth of his first grandchild, born earlier this week to his middle daughter August .
"Our family would first like to thank everyone for their warm wishes and sweet celebration of Baby K's arrival," Brooks says.
"Our children's lives have always been extremely private and they have been endlessly encouraged to be their own people. We have always wanted them to be individuals and not be known as 'someone's daughters.' I have been amazed and grateful how the press has always respected this. I now ask that respect to please continue as this young family begins the greatest days of their lives."
