Dixie Pearl, the pair's first child, arrived at 1 a.m. and weighed in at 7 lbs 11 oz, 22 inches.

Followill and Aldridge, a Victoria's Secret model, married in a Montecito, Calif. ceremony last May. After meeting at Coachella in 2007, the 30-year-old singer proposed to the 26-year-old Victoria's Secret model in Sept. 2010.

Followill is the second KoLer to take the leap into fatherhood. His cousin -- and fellow guitarist -- Matthew Followill has a 13-month-old son, Knox.
