Linkin Park Singer Becomes A Father

Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington has been crowned one of the most successful figures in modern rock. Now he has an heir.

Bennington’s wife, Samantha, gave birth to the couple’s first son on April 19. “He’s happy, healthy and cute as can be,” the band wrote on its official Web site. “The whole family will be on the road during the next Linkin tour.” The child’s name was not disclosed.

Of course, the next Linkin tour is a while off, since the band is in the studio working on the follow-up to its multiplatinum debut. The group hopes to have the disc completed by November, the band’s publicist said, adding that the long-vaunted Linkin Park remix album is tentatively scheduled for release at the end of July.
