Lily gave birth to the little girl yesterday at the Vanderbilt University and Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee. They revealed later that their daughter will be named Dixie Pearl Followill.
The couple got married at the San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, California on the 12th of May last year. They originally met at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival in Indio. California in April 2007.
Lily Aldridge was a model prior to meeting Followill having appeared in the Spanish edition of Vogue at the age of 17-years old. In 2009 she started modelling for lingerie company Victoria’s Secret and in 2010 was awarded the title of Victoria’s Secret Angel.
Followill and The Kings of Leon are best known for the singles Sex on Fire and Use Somebody. In 2010 Use Somebody helped Kings of Leon take home 3 Grammy Awards for Best Rock Song, Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group and the prestigious Record of the Year award.
KIngs of Leon ended their 2011 US and European tour over a month early after a shambolic concert in Dallas, Texas. NME reported that Followill appeared to be drunk and had announced he was leaving the stage to be sick and have another beer. When he didn’t return Caleb’s brother Jared, the Kings of Leon bassist, apologised to the crowd. He later posted on Twitter that the group had “internal sickness and problems that need to be addressed”.
Kings of Leon announced in October last year that they would be taking some time off but probably no longer than 6 months.
Frankie had a tricky time last year, announcing in October that she checked herself into rehab. This all looks to be behind her now as she showed photos of herself and footballer boyfriend Wayne Bridge. Bridge currently plays for Manchester City and had previously played for England until a controversial incident involving the England captain John Terry and Bridge’s former girlfriend lingerie model Vanessa Perroncel caused him to cease his international career.
The pair certainly seem to be enjoying the sunshine on their holiday and although Frankie didn’t let on where they had gone it looks a lot hotter and drier than the UK does this week.
She shared a photo of the two of them in the sea holding a starfish each with the caption: ‘Big fish little fish…. Starfish!!!!’
Frankie and Wayne were joined later by her friend and former S-Club Junior bandmate Aaron Benfree as well as singer Jimmy Essex. The four of them later posted a shot of them all relaxing in the sun.
Before going out with Wayne Frankie was in a relationship with Mcfly’s bassist Dougie Poynter.
Today’s photos certainly show that Frankie is in fine form with those famous abs looking mighty good.
