Twin boys for ex-Jam star Weller

Paul Weller has named his twin sons after his musical heroes

Paul Weller has become the father of twin boys and named them after a trio of his musical heroes.

The former Jam frontman's wife, Hannah, gave birth to John Paul and Bowie on Saturday, according to a message on his website.

It said: "Both boys are healthy and doing well following the birth and Paul and Hannah are thrilled and over the moon.

"Paul would like to thank his fans for all their well wishes over the last few months."

Weller achieved a string of hits with The Jam including Eton Rifles and Start! before they disbanded in 1982.

He bounced back with The Style Council the following year and then launched a solo career in the early 1990s, achieving hits such as You Do Something To Me, Wild Wood and The Changingman.

His album, Wake Up The Nation, was shortlisted for the 2010 Mercury Prize but lost out to The xx.
