Kings of Leon drummer Nathan Followill has his own little princess! The musician and his wife Jessie Baylin welcomed their first baby, daughter Violet Marlowe Followill, on December 26th. Followill took to Twitter to share his happy news, saying, “I can proudly announce the birth of my sweet angel Violet Marlowe Followill.

Kings of Leon singer Caleb Followill and his wife Lily Aldridge are getting everything ready for the arrival of their first baby later this year. Nursery painted? Check. Nursery carpeted? Check (white!). But as for the music to help baby into the world … well, mom and dad are having a difference of opinion, according to an interview Followill had with E!Online. Dad wants the “baby to come out rocking,” perhaps to some Queens of the Stone Age. Mom would prefer something classical, “… a lot more peaceful.” Regardless of what music baby arrives to, he or she will have plenty of rocking — music and otherwise — in the future!
