Don't forget to take your shoes off when you visit Kings Of Leon rocker Caleb Followill and his pregnant wife, Victoria's Secret model Lily Aldridge.


Because the nursery is almost done! Read on for the adorable details...

"We've slapped some paint on the walls and no shoes in there because we've got white carpet," Followill told me at the Grammys. "I'm excited to decorate it with fun little musical posters and things like that."

They've also been listening to music choices for the actual delivery. "We're trying to pick the music to make the birth go smoothly," Followill said. "I said, 'Queens of the Stone Age,' but she's not into it. I want the baby to come out rocking."

Aldridge, however, "listens to a lot of classical music," Followill said. "Also, she listens to My Morning Jacket and Neil Young—a lot of more peaceful music, I guess."

In other baby-music news, Eric Benet revealed to me that he and wife Manuela Testolini are collaborating on a lullaby for their 7-month-old daughter Lucia. "I wrote the music and she wrote the lyrics," Benet said.

The song will be included on his next album, The One, which is set for a May release.

Meanwhile, White Collar star Tiffany Thiessen and her actor-artist hubby Brady Smith's daughter, Harper, turned 20 months on Wednesday. She's growing up to be a combo of mom and dad, Thiessen said. "She loves the dirt, the snails and rocks and worms and all those kind of things," the former Beverly Hills, 90210 star said with a big smile at the USA Network and The Moth's storytelling event at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood. "But then she also loves her dolls and she loves to put necklaces on and dress up."

Sounds like the perfect kid to us.
