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.

Drummer Nathan Followill wed singer Jessie Baylin in Nov. 2009, while frontman Caleb Followill will marry model Lily Aldridge this month.
