The Killers' frontman Brandon Flowers is apparently set to become a father for the first time.

Reports claim that the singer's wife Tana will give birth to their first child in July, although the story is yet to be officially confirmed.

The couple, who married in Hawaii two years ago, have reportedly already discovered the sex of the child.

A source told the Sun newspaper that Flowers was "smitten, especially because it's a boy".

"It's going to be a Brandon Junior, I'm sure."

The Killers have enjoyed massive success in the UK, with their first two albums Hot Fuss and Sam's Town getting to number one.

The Las Vegas quarter are also set to headline Glastonbury this summer  a month before Tana Flowers will reportedly give birth.
