It’s a boy! Pillar bassist Kalel Wittig and his wife Stacie have a new baby boy named Kaden Michael Wittig. Kaden, Wittig’s first-born, entered the world at 12:25am on February 4. Kaden weighed in at 9 pounds 13 ounces and 22 inches long.

Kalel shows his love for his family by complimenting his wife’s strength and asking that fans pray for his new son.

“Stacie was a trooper and did an amazing job- something I could have never done even if it was anatomically possible,” said Kalel. “We prayed and hope you all can say a little prayer for Kaden- that he grows up a kind, honest, and God fearing man who will do great things.

After staying in the hospital for around two days, the Wittigs plan to join vocalist Rob Beckley in Nashville, TN, to work on the band’s latest album Where Do We Go From Here? , slated to release June 15.

Pillar is currently getting ready to head out on the second annual “See Spot Rock Tour”.
