OTRC: Kings of Leon guitarist Matthew Followill and wife welcome baby boy

The Kings of Leon band family, consisting of brothers Caleb, Nathan, Jared and cousin Matthew Followill, just got a little bigger.

Matthew Followill, who plays lead guitar and provides backing vocals for the Grammy Award-winning band, welcomed a baby boy with his wife Johanna Bennett on Friday, April 22, according to People.

The baby, named Knox Cameron Patrick Followill, was born in Nashville, Tennessee and weighed in at 6 pounds, 10 ounces.

"Mother, father and baby are happy and healthy and doing well!" the rep said in a statement, according to the magazine.

The couple, both 26, are the first in the Kings of Leon band to have a child. Drummer Nathan Followill, who underwent surgery on his arm in January, married singer Jessie Baylin in November 2009. The band's lead singer Caleb Followill, who commented on the band's feud with "Glee" creator Ryan Murphy back in January, is set to marry model Lily Aldridge this year.
