Kings Of Leon drummer Nath Followill has become a father for the first time after his wife gave birth to a daughter yesterday (Dec 27).

The drummer, who is married to singer Jesse Baylin, tweeted about the birth of daughter Violet, writing: "I can proudly announce the birth of my sweet angel Violet Marlowe Followill. My heart has been stolen and it feels so good." The news was then confirmed by a representative for Kings of Leon who revealed that Violet was born at 4:01pm and weighs 7lbs 13ounces.

Violet Marlowe is the third Kings of Leon child, joining frontman Caleb's daughter Dixie Pearl and guitarist Matthew Followill's son Knox Cameron.




Kings of Leon are currently working on their sixth LP, the follow-up to 2010's 'Come Around Sundown'. The band recently confirmed details of a UK tour in 2013 and will play shows in London, Manchester and Birmingham in June and July. Starting in London, the Nashville-based band will play the O2 Arena on June 12 and 13 before playing Manchester Arena on June 24 and 25.
