Mikey and his wife Kristin welcomed Rowan Louise Way and fans and celebrities alike have sent congratulatory messages...including Gerard.

Mikey Way, solo musician, former MCR member and all-round good guy, has welcomed, alongside his wife Kristin, his first baby: Rowan Louise Way.

Mikey announced the happy news via his Instagram account, posting a very cute pic of Rowan in an adorable cat-themed onesie.


Introducing - the one and only...Rowan Louise Way! Proud & honored to be your father.

Many fellow musicians and famous friends have congratulated the couple on their news, including Mikey's brother Gerard who wrote a celebratory message on his Facebook page:

"My family and I are so overjoyed at the news that our two favorite people will be having a baby! They are going to make fantastic parents and we are all smiling on the inside and outside."

We're not crying, you are...

And, of course, the fandom had a LOT of emotions to let out:





A big day for Rowan's everywhere, clearly.

Mikey released his first full-length post-MCR release last year with his Electric Century album For The Night To Control. He also made recent guest appearances on songs by pop punk upstarts Waterparks and Black Veil Brides lead singer Andy Black.

Congratulations Mikey and Kristin on your new arrival!
