Brandon Flowers has become a father for the second time.

The Killers rocker and his wife Tana welcomed their second son Gunner into the world last week, and mother and baby are both doing well.

Brandon confirmed the new arrival during an interview with a radio show, saying: "We're both delighted. We decided on the name because Gunner is tough. I had to have something that combats against the Flowers."

Brandon and Tana, who have been married for four years, already have two-year-old Ammon together.

The 28-year-old musician has previously revealed he loved witnessing the birth of his first child, as it triggered his paternal instincts.

He explained: "It was wonderful attending the birth. They say a man doesn't become a father until the baby is born, whereas a woman is a mother as soon as she's pregnant. I guess that is true.

"I was sympathetic to my wife and excited about having a baby, but it didn't hit me until he was born. That was the greatest day of my life."
