It’s time for our newest edition of Pink Pony Robot. TLO’s society column featuring the Weirdly Rich and Famous of Oklahoma City…
Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne and his girlfriend Katy Weaver recently announced they are expecting a baby boy.
Yep, that’s right. Wayne Coyne will be joining Hipster Boo Boo and The Lost Ogle in the parenthood club. You’re on the clock, Emily Sutton.
Naturally, the lovebirds revealed the baby’s gender on stage during a concert. Katy then shared a video of the announcement on Instagram, along with a slide show, to appease all the jealous Miley Cyrus fans who hate-follow her.

….well….. this is us finding out we’re having a baby BOY!! 👶🏼 💙🤣!!!!!!! Swipe right to see how it began…. On the morning we flew to Hawaii, I took a test.. and it said yes!! (Wayne has already bought a ring to propose in Hawaii, so it was a BIG trip for us!) I thought the test could be wrong, so I took about 700 more tests… and then saw a couple ultrasounds (see Wayne’s drawing of the ultrasound looking like a baby on a bicycle 🚲🤣) … and now we’ve found out it’s a BOY… so, it’s getting REAL!! We are sOo excited! Due May 29 💙💙💙💙💙💙💙 @waynecoyne5
Geeze, you think Wayne Coyne of all people would have a better confetti cannon. That would be like Toby Keith showing up to a kegger with white styrofoam cups.
The baby news has been rumored for quite some time. As we noted, Wayne Coyne proposed to Katy in Hawaii in September. Then, only a few weeks later, Katy was spotted shopping for baby clothes with Miley Cyrus in LA. Here’s a video:
It seems like everyone in Wayne and Katy’s inner-circle of shweddy fwendz knew about the news. Their hot model friend Paige Chanel alluded to the baby in this Instagram post:
By the way, Paige has a fun Instagram account. Check it out.
Anyway, we here at TLO would like to congratulate Wayne and Katy on the exciting news. I’m hearing they plan on having a fetus-themed baby shower at the Womb and will be registered at every Birkenstock retailer in America. I plan on getting the little one a tiny grey suit and inflatable hamster ball to roll around inside.
It will be interesting to see how this affects Wayne’s art and craft going forward. Trust me on this – having a kid changes the way you see and view the world. Will it help lift Wayne out of his creative rut and inspire another Soft Bulletin, or will the Lip’s next effort be titled “Umbilical Cord From Ego-Trip of Mars” and, instead of blood or urine, be made from the baby’s placenta? I guess we’ll have to wait to find out.
