Kings of Leon Frontman Caleb Followill + Wife Are Expecting a Baby
A source revealed that Aldridge is three months along but did not say whether it’s a boy or a girl. The couple met at the Coachella music festival in 2007 and married in May of this year. It was a true rock star wedding, with the rest of Caleb’s bandmates and Aldridge’s fellow models in attendance.
Caleb’s child would be the second in just over a year for the Kings of Leon crew. In April, guitarist Matthew Followill, Caleb’s cousin, became a dad for the first time.
KOL bassplayer Jared expressed his excitement for the couple on Twitter: “So excited to be an uncle! Congrats Caleb & Lily! If it’s a boy, we gonna be hitting da club together every night! If it’s a girl….church.”
A summer 2012 baby could also help Caleb move past the difficult times he’s experienced over the past several months. The band had to cancel its 2011 summer tour due to Caleb’s erratic behavior, which led to a tongue-lashing from Hanson and (false) rumors the group was going to fire him. The band is currently on hiatus, but the guys previously stated they hope to starting working together again within six months.
