Lead singer Sharon den Adel of Dutch symphonic metallers WITHIN TEMPTATION gave birth to a beautiful baby boy yesterday (Wednesday, March 30). Logan Arwin Westerholt (pictured below), who weighed in at five pounds, 8.7 ounces and measured 47 centimeters long, came into the world a little over five weeks early but both mother and son are doing fine.
After taking time to recuperate and get to know her new son, Sharon will begin preparing to get back on stage in August, when WITHIN TEMPTATION will start its extensive tour with a special performance at Holland's Huntenpop Festival, after which the band will be visiting the U.S., Canada and Europe.
Logan is the third child of Sharon den Adel and WITHIN TEMPTATION guitarist Robert Westerholt. The couple has a one-year-old son, Robin Aiden Westerholt, and a five-year old daughter named Eva Luna den Adel.
WITHIN TEMPTATION's fifth studio album, "The Unforgiving", was released on March 29 via Sony Music in Continental Europe and Roadrunner Records in the U.S., U.K. and Ireland, Japan and Australia. The CD was produced by Daniel Gibson and is based on a comic book story written by script writer Steven O'Connell (BloodRayne, Dark 48).
