Megadeth Guitarist Kiko Lourerio Becomes Father

Congratulations to Megadeth guitarist Kiko Loureiro, who just became the father of twins! Loureiro revealed his new fatherhood yesterday (Nov. 21) via Twitter.

Thankfully, Megadeth wasn’t on tour when the big day happened, allowing Kiko to be in Finland with his wife to witness the birth of the couple’s new twins. Kiko didn’t give much information, likely because he’s got more important matters to attend to, but he did share this photo with fans:

Along with congratulating Kiko, Dave Mustaine dispelled rumors that Loureiro was parting ways with Megadeth:

NEWS! @KikoLoureiro is 100% in @megadeth. The sites & sources that said he is leaving are unreliable and should not be trusted at all – DM
