Arcade Fire's Win Butler and Regine Chassagne have welcomed the birth of their first child.

The name of musical couple's son, who weighed seven pounds, has not yet been revealed.

News of the birth – which took place on April 21 - was revealed by Canadian publication Le Journal de Montréal. Spinner has translated the announcement made in the paper by Barry Mack, the pastor at Montreal's St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church Saint-Lambert, as: "It's good to see that they are still together and they now have a baby. It's a bit rare in the entertainment industry."

At the end of last year it was confirmed that Arcade Fire were working on their new album with James Murphy.

In an interview with MusicWeek, the band's manager Scott Rodger said that Arcade Fire were in the studio with Murphy.

He said: "They're in with James Murphy on three or so songs, plus Markus Dravs who is a long-time collaborator. They write too many songs - that's a good problem to have. There's around 35 songs with Arcade Fire, two albums'-worth for sure."
