It’s a rock band baby boom!
Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins and his wife, Alison, are expecting their second child, he tells PEOPLE.
“I have one on the way!” Hawkins, 36, said last weekend at Clive Davis and the Recording Academy’s Pre-Grammy Gala in Beverly Hills, while pointing to his wife’s growing belly.
The baby will join the couple’s 18-month-old son, Oliver Shane.
Hawkins’s band mate, Dave Grohl, is also becoming a father for a second time. The Foo Fighters frontman, 40, whose daughter, Violet Maye, turns 3 in April, announced in October that he and wife Jordyn Blum are also expecting their second child.
“Backstage banter is not what it used to be,” Hawkins tells PEOPLE. “[Now] it’s like, ‘What school is your kid going to?!’ It’s great.’”
