He was at Hogwarts during most of DH so maybe Delphi was born when he was at school and then they quickly gave her up for adoption to the Rowles.
She said she was born before the battle of Hogwarts. To me, when someone says that one event happened before (or after) another one it implies that they occurred closely together, within one or two months of each other. If they didn't occur closely together then why bother mentioning the one event at all in reference to the other?
