Lily Aldridge and Caleb Followill Welcome First Child

A very special congratulations goes out Lily Aldridge and Caleb Followill today.

The Victoria Secret model and the Kings of Leon singer welcomed their first child into the world. Taking after her flawless mother, it’s a beautiful baby girl.

According to Us Weekly, the birth took place at the Vanderbilt University & Medical Center in Nashville. The new family member arrived early Thursday morning.

The couple married in May of last year during an intimate ceremony held at the San Ysido Ranch in Montecito, California. Lily was 25 and Caleb was 29 at the time of their nuptials.

People magazine reported that the wedding was a wonderful tribute to the pretty couple.

“It was a perfect day," said Followill.

Lily wore a strapless Vera Wang gown at the event. The couple got engaged back in the fall of 2010.

The new baby is the first good news that Followill has had in a while. The singer has fallen on some dark times in the last year ever since his actions caused Kings of Leon cancel their US tour.

Originally, the source of the sudden move was cited as “ vocal issues and exhaustion” that Caleb was experiencing. Us Weekly later reported that his issues were more severe.

“They are trying to get Caleb to go to rehab. It is mostly for alcohol," the source said. "He drinks like a fish."

It came to head when Caleb stopped a show in Dallas and left the stage saying “"I'm gonna go backstage and I'm gonna vomit, I'm gonna drink a beer." He did not return to perform that night.

Hopefully the new responsibilities will help dad get his issues and priorities in order.
