King Diamond Welcomes First Child Into The World

Congrats to the iconic King Diamond and his wife, Livia Zita, who are now the proud parents of a son named Byron. The couple, who have been performing together since 2003, welcomed the newborn into the world three months ago, and were somehow able to keep the news private until now. Not surprisingly, Livia has now confirmed that she will not be performing on his upcoming shows, so she can take care of the child back home. Instead, Hel Pyre from Afterblood will be performing backing vocals on the upcoming dates, which includes Psycho Las Vegas next month.

We want to send a huge congratulations to the couple on the good news!
