The last Kings of Leon bachelor is getting hitched. Just Jared broke the news today that Jared Followill, the youngest brother in the band, is engaged to girlfriend Martha Patterson. The groom-to-be, 25, popped the question after only three months of dating the 21-year-old model.

“Yes, it’s true!” a rep for Followill says. “Jared proposed to Martha on April 11 at his home in Nashville and we’re all excited for the newly engaged couple.”

PEOPLE confirmed the news and posted a photo of the ring. Followill presented his fiancee with a 4-carat cushion-cut diamond set on a diamond-covered band that he designed.

He and Martha began dating in January of this year and attended the Grammy Awards together. They are expected to split their time between their residences in Nashville and Los Angeles. Will matrimony cause Jared to settle down and lose the wild side that caused him to drive through a neighbor’s garage?

Jared’s bandmates, brothers Caleb and Nathan and cousin Matthew, are all married. Caleb and his wife are expecting their first child, while cousin Matthew and his wife had a baby a year ago. We wish the best to the happy couple!
