There’s a new little king in the Followill family.
Kings of Leon guitarist Matthew Followill and wife Johanna Bennett welcomed their first child, son Knox Cameron Patrick Followill, on Friday, April 22, a rep for the band confirms to PEOPLE.
Knox was born in Nashville, Tenn., at 1:02 p.m. and weighed in at 6 lbs., 10 oz.
“Mother, father and baby are happy and healthy and doing well!” the rep said in a statement.
Followill and Bennett, both 26, are the first Kings of Leon couple to have a child, although the majority of the band is settling down as well.
