Los Angeles - Kings of Leon drummer Nathan Followill has welcomed his first child with wife Jessie Baylin.

The couple - who announced they were expanding their family just days after his brother and fellow band mate Caleb Followill welcomed his daughter Dixie Pearl with wife Lily Aldridge last summer - had a baby daughter Violet Marlowe Followill on Wednesday in Nashville.

A spokesperson for the 33-year-old rocker confirmed the news to People.com, saying: "Mom, Dad and baby are doing well and are so in love!"

Twitter announcement

The baby girl was born at 16:01, weighing 3.5kg.

Writing on Twitter shortly before the birth, Nathan said: "I'm beyond excited/anxious."

And later announced the birth:


The couple tied the knot in November 2009.

Nathan is the third member of the popular band to have a child; his cousin Matthew Followill and his wife Johanna Bennett welcomed their son Knox Cameron Patrick Followill in April 2011.

Kings of Leon - known for songs including Sex On Fire and Use Somebody - are currently on a hiatus following their tour of Australia last November, and Nathan had most recently been supporting his singer/songwriter wife while she toured with her album Little Spark.
