Kings of Leon drummer Nathan Followill has welcomed his first child with wife Jessie Baylin.

The couple - who announced they were expanding their family just days after his brother and fellow band mate Caleb Followill welcomed his daughter Dixie Pearl with wife Lily Aldridge last summer - had a baby daughter, Violet Marlowe Followill, on Wednesday in Nashville.

A spokesperson for the 33-year-old rocker confirmed the news to People: "Mum, Dad and baby are doing well and are so in love."

Writing on twitter shortly before the birth, Followill said: "I'm beyond excited/anxious."

The couple tied the knot in November 2009.

Followill is the third member of the popular band to have a child; his cousin Matthew Followill and his wife Johanna Bennett welcomed their son Knox Cameron Patrick Followill in April 2011.

Kings of Leon - known for songs including Sex On Fire and Use Somebody - are on a break following their tour of Australia last November, and Followill had most recently been supporting his singer/songwriter wife while she toured with her album Little Spark.
