The Killers' frontman Brandon Flowers and wife Tana welcomed their second child last week, a baby boy named Gunner.
"Both baby and parents are healthy and happy," Killers' rep Jen Appel tells PEOPLE.
Speaking to the Kramp and Adler radio show shortly before taking the stage on Sunday at Lollapalooza in Chicago, the 28-year-old singer-songwriter confirmed the happy news. He went on to note the challenges presented by his distinctive last name.
"[Gunner] is a tough name," Flowers explains. "I had to have something that combats against the Flowers."
Baby Gunner joins older brother Ammon, 2, at home in Las Vegas.
The pregnancy was announced in May.
