Kings of Leon’s Caleb Followill and Wife Welcome First Child
It’s a girl! Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill and his wife, model Lily Aldridge, are parents for the first time. Us Weekly reports that Aldridge gave birth to a baby girl at Vanderbilt University & Medical Center in Nashville on Thursday morning.
Followill, 30, and Aldridge, 26, have yet to announce their daughter’s name. The couple met at the Coachella festival in 2007 and married last year at San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, California. Caleb and Lily announced the pregnancy in December and attended the Grammys together in February, where the group was nominated for two awards.
Aldridge seems to be loving life with the sometimes-temperamental singer. She previously told Us, “I love our moments together, but even apart we have a great support system going. He’s my family. It’s a wonderful thing to be married — it’s different, but a good different. It’s wonderful.” Followill added, “A perfect night for us is cooking at home with her, a good bottle of wine, and Billie Holiday.”
Caleb’s cousin and bandmate Matthew became a dad last April for the first time. His brother Jared apparently has a lot of worship time coming up with the new addition to the family. After learning of the pregnancy last year, he tweeted, “So excited to be an uncle! Congrats Caleb & Lily! If it’s a boy, we gonna be hitting da club together every night! If it’s a girl….church.”
