Jared Followill marries Martha Patterson
Jared Followill tied the knot with Martha Patterson. The Kings of Leon bass guitarist and the model married in Charlotte, Tennessee, Saturday, September 29.
“Today, I get married. It’s the biggest step I’ve ever taken. I’ve dreamed about this day since I was a little girl”, the 25-year-old singer wrote on Twitter. “Marrying my best friend today. I’m the luckiest girl in the world”, the bride added.
Jared’s bandmates (singer Caleb, drummer Nathan and lead guitarist Matthew) attended the rustic ceremony.
Jared proposed to Martha at his Nashville home on April 11. He made the proposal with a self-designed engagement ring featuring a 4-carat cushion-cut diamond set on a diamond-covered band.
Previously, Jared was engaged to model Alisa Torres until 2009. He was also romantically linked to Ashley Greene in 2011.
What’s next on the newly married couple agenda? Most surely a baby. All his bandmates are married and parents. Caleb married Victoria’s Secret supermodel Lily Aldridge on May 12, 2011. They are parents to daughter Dixie Pearl, 3 months. Nathan wed singer/songwriter Jessie Baylin on November 2009. They are currently expecting their first child. Matthew and musician Johanna Bennett marrieds in November 2009. They are parents to son Knox Cameron Patrick, 17 months.
