Baby joy for Kings of Leon drummer

The Kings Of Leon family has just got bigger.

Drummer Nathan Followill and his wife, singer-songwriter Jessie Baylin, welcomed a baby girl on Wednesday.

It is the couple’s first child and the third for the Followill family band. Nathan Followill’s brother Caleb and cousin Matthew also have children.

A spokesman said Violet Marlowe Followill was born in Nashville, Tennessee, at 4.01pm and weighed 7lb 13oz.

The baby comes before what promises to be a busy 2013 for Kings Of Leon.

The Nashville-based band have been working on new music for an album which is expected to be released next year.

Baylin released her third album, Little Spark, earlier this year.

The couple has been married since 2009.
