Brandon Flowers has become a father for third time.

The Killers frontman's wife Tana gave birth to a baby boy, who they have named Henry, on March 9, his publicist confirmed to People magazine.

The couple already have two sons, Ammon, three, and 19-month-old Gunnar.

Brandon - who released his first solo album, 'Flamingo', last year - recently revealed he is considering cutting back on his touring as he wants to spend more time with his family.

He said: "It's very difficult being on tour so my family don't come with me very often.

"With touring it gets harder with each child, it's not something you plan for or prepare yourself for, you just got to go out there and figure it out yourself.

"I love music, but I want to spend more time with my children. I'd like to be around when they start school."

The 29-year-old star 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."
