Caleb Followill celebrates his birthday this week.
The Kings Of Leon frontman is one quarter of the familial band, who are completed by his brothers Nathan and Jared Followill and their cousin Matthew.
The Nashville rockers are responsible for some of the biggest indie hits of the last two decades including Four Kicks, California Waiting, Sex On Fire and Use Somebody still heard today.
Find out everything you need to know about Caleb Followill including his real name, when he was born, who he's married to, the kids they share and more.
Caleb Followill was born on 14 January 1982. At the time of writing this article, Caleb Followill is 39 years of age.
Caleb Followill was born Anthony Caleb Followill in Mount Juliet, Tennessee. Caleb isn't the only KOL bandmate to adopt his middle name, with all the other members doing the same.
Caleb is married to 35-year-old model and famous Victoria's Secret Angel Lily Aldridge. The pair tied the knot in 2011 in an intimate ceremony at the San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, California.
Caleb Followill and Lily Aldridge have two children; eight year old Dixie Pearl Followill (born 21 June 2012) and one-year-old Winston Roy Followill (born 2 February 2019).
Kings of Leon formed in Nashville, Tennessee in 1999.
Caleb, Jared and Nathan Followill were all sons of Ivan Leon Followill - a Pentecostal preacher who travelled around the Deep South with them and their mother Betty-Ann as he preached.
When their father retired from preaching and their parents divorced in 1997, Nathan and Caleb moved outside Nashville.
They bought a bass for their younger brother Jared, and later admitted to "kidnapping" their cousin Matthew from Mississippi to join the band.
Their name is quite simply inspired by their familial bond as it's taken directly from their paternal grandfather, who was named Leon.
Kings of Leon's eighth studio album When You See Yourself is set for release on 5 March 2021.
