One of pop culture’s last great rock star / supermodel couples, King of Leon Caleb Followill and Lily Aldridge, have birthed their first offspring, with one of them (Lily, probably) popping out a 7 pound, 11 oz. baby girl. The baby comes a year after the couple tied the knot, and a representative of the couple tells Just Jared that “Mom, dad and baby are happy, healthy and enjoying their new addition.” And the name of this brand-new bundle of joy? Dixie Pearl Followill, named after the couple’s favorite Little Feat song and posthumous Janis Joplin album. (Probably not.)
Really, though, on the scale of celebrity baby names, Dixie Pearl gets what…a four, maybe? Five, tops. They’re two mildly ridiculous (and definitely self-consciously retro and southern) names, but they’re at least names that other people, of the correct gender even, have called their own before. The kid should probably be very thankful she’s not named Methuselah or Bathsheeba or something, really. Well done, Caleb and Lily—you have shown admirable self-restraint where few in your position before you have managed.
