NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Followill family is expanding again.

Kings of Leon drummer Nathan Followill and his wife, singer Jessie Baylin, are expecting a baby. The announcement comes on the heels of the birth of their new niece.

Kings of Leon spokesman Ken Weinstein says the couple is excited. The baby is due in December.

Lead singer Caleb Followill and his wife, model Lily Aldridge, had a baby girl named Dixie Pearl a week ago in Nashville, Tenn. It was their first child.

The Kings of Leon have been on hiatus, but Baylin has been busy promoting her album "Little Spark" and touring much of the spring.
