Congratulations are in order for Kings of Leon‘s Nathan Followill. The drummer celebrated Christmas week with the gift of becoming a dad for the first time. Followill revealed the news on Thursday (Dec. 27) via Twitter: “I can proudly announce the birth of my sweet angel Violet Marlowe Followill. My heart has been stolen and it feels so good.”

Violet was born Wednesday (Dec. 26) at 4:01 p.m. in Nashville, Tenn., and weighed 7 pounds, 13 ounces, according to Zap2it.com. Violet is the first baby for Followill and his wife, singer-songwriter Jessie Baylin, who have been married since 2009.

Followill isn’t the only Kings of Leon rocker with a kid. Followill’s brother, lead singer Caleb Followill, and his wife Lily Aldridge had their first child, daughter Dixie Pearl, in June of this year. His cousin, guitarist Matthew Followill, is also a father, as he and his wife Johanna Bennett had their first child, son Knox, in 2011.
