Baby News Roundup! Matthew McConaughey, Kings of Leon, The Civil Wars And More!

Camilla and Matthew


You probably caught DILF Matthew McConaughey in box office hit ‘Magic Mike‘ last weekend, and now he has another thing to celebrate. Matthew tweeted the big news that him and new wife Camila Alves are expecting their third child. The couple, who have been together for six years, married in June. They have two other children, Levi, who’ll be 4 this week, and Vida, 2 1/2.

Claire and Hugh

Expecting her first child is ‘Homeland‘ star Claire Danes, her rep confirmed to PEOPLE. Danes, 33, married actor Hugh Dancy, 37, in 2009 after they met on the set of the movie ‘Evening‘ in 2007. A spokesperson for ‘Homeland”s production company Fox 21 says that Danes’ pregnancy is likely to not affect the show. I’m sure President Obama, who is a huge fan of the show, will be excited to hear that.

Jennifer Nettles

Just seven months after her wedding, Sugarland‘s Jennifer Nettles is happy to report she is pregnant with her first child. The singer and ‘Duets‘ mentor married husband Justin Miller in Nashville back in November of last year. “They are thrilled beyond belief!,” Sugarland’s manager, Gail Gellman, tells PEOPLE.

John Paul and Joy from The Civil Wars (..the kids is not John Paul's)


Another Country/Americana/Folk star starting her family is one-half of The Civil Wars, Joy Williams. She gave birth to her son Miles Alexander on June 30 in Nashville. “Now I really know what love at first sight means after meeting my son, Miles Alexander,” she wrote on Twitter.  “Born yesterday, all happy and healthy. xo” Williams announced her pregnancy earlier this year when she and band-mate John Paul White picked up their first Grammys at the awards show in February.

Kings of Leon with their wives

The Followill clan is growing by the minute. Lead singer of Kings of Leon Caleb welcomed daughter Dixie Pearl with wife, model Lily Aldridge, on June 21. Little Dixie came weighed in at 7 lbs., 11 oz. and measuring 22 inches long. The couple are said to be “happy, healthy and enjoying their new addition.

The elder Followill, drummer Nathan is expecting with wife, singer Jessie Baylin. “I’m beyond excited/anxious. Life is beautiful,” he tweeted. Their brother Jared got engaged in May to Martha Patterson so we can expect more baby news from them in the future .

WOW.  That’s a LOT of babies.
