No matter how much musical trends and tastes change over the years, rock stars and models go together like peanut butter and jelly. The latest evidence came today (May 2) when a spokesperson for Jared Followill of Kings of Leon confirmed the bassist’s engagement to aspiring model Martha Patterson. The couple, who have only known each other for a few months, got engaged on April 11. No wedding date has been announced.

Although the couple were able to keep the news to themselves for three weeks, rumors started flying when recent pictures of them at Coachella surfaced with Patterson wearing a large diamond ring. Followill gave her the 4-carat cushion-cut diamond at his house in Nashville. On the day of the engagement, Patterson tweeted, “What a beautiful, wonderfully perfect day” without giving any other information.

Once the couple tie the knot, Jared will become the second member of Kings of Leon to marry a model. Lead singer Caleb Followill, Jared’s brother, married Victoria’s Secret model Lily Aldridge in May 2011. The couple is expecting their first child this year.
