Tom Meighan has become a father for the first time.

The Kasabian frontman's girlfriend Kim gave birth to their daughter Mimi Malone a few weeks ago, it has been revealed.

Tom's bandmate Serge Pizzorno revealed the news after he finished playing in the charity Soccer Aid match in Manchester on Sunday night (27.05.12).

He said: ''I want to dedicate my goal to Tom, who's just become a dad to a little girl.''

And the 'Fire' guitarist was able to give a unique gift to the singer - a message from one of his heroes, 'Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy' star Will Ferrell, who played for the Rest of the World team against England.

A source told The Sun newspaper: ''Will Ferrell put his little one to bed then came out for a night out with all the lads. He toasted Serge's goal and the latest member of the Kasabian family. Tom is a massive film fan so a message from Anchorman is up there with owning Elliott's BMX from 'ET'.

''Will was holding court at the bar all night. He had the boys in stitches.''

Tom admitted shortly after Serge became a father to his son Ennio, now two, that he wanted to have children of his own.

He said at the time: ''A baby would be a good focus for me. I'll have to ask the missus, but yeah. A baby would be mega.''
