Congratulations are in order for Epica frontwoman Simone Simons and Kamelot keyboardist Oliver Palotai. The longtime couple recently shared some big news with fans announcing the arrival of their new baby boy into the world.

Born on Oct. 2, 2013 at 11:26PM, they named their new addition Vincent G. Palotai.

A few days after the life changing experience of giving birth to her first child, Simons shared the following message with fans:

Both Vincent and me are doing great. He is a perfect little man. Thank you for all the love and well wishes you have sent us. It is absolutely heartwarming!
Love from the Palotais.

Simons also took to  her personal Twitter account, sharing, “It’s a boy!”

Shortly after announcing Simons’ pregnancy, Epica revealed plans to start working on a new album during the second half of 2013 with the new disc due out in 2014. The new album will serve as the follow-up to their last release, ‘Requiem For The Indifferent.'

Best wishes to the couple on the birth of their baby boy.
