    New parents: Billy Corgan of The Smashing Pumpkins is a father. The 48-year-old singer-songwriter and Chloe Mendel, 22, welcomed their son on November 16, People reported on Tuesday; here the couple are seen in March 2014

    Now that's original: They named their little one Augustus Juppiter Corgan

    Corgan is best known as the founder and frontman of the ’90s alternative rock band The Smashing Pumpkins.
    Mendel is an artist and the daughter of fashion designers Gilles Mendel and Jenny Mui.
    Though Billy is best known for his massive hits Tonight, Tonight and 1979, his personal life has not been quiet or dull.
    In 1993, he married his longtime on-again, off-again girlfriend Chris Fabian, art conservationist and artist. They were married at a small ceremony at his house in Wrigleyville.

    Now grandparents: Mendel is an artist and the daughter of fashion designers Gilles Mendel and Jenny Mui, who are seen here in November 2014

    Rumors circulated that Corgan and Courtney Love rekindled their romance during the Pumpkins' 1994 Lollapalooza tour, after Kurt Cobain's death.
    Corgan and Fabian separated late 1995, and divorced in 1997.
    Corgan refused to discuss the subject in interviews, saying, 'There is not and will not be any public record on my marriage – that's one thing I have to draw lines around.;
    In late 1995, he started dating photographer Yelena Yemchuk, who later contributed to several Smashing Pumpkins videos and album art.

    Romeo: Though Billy is best known for his massive hits Tonight, Tonight and 1979, his personal life has not been quiet or dull - he has been linked to Courtney Love and Jessica Simpson. Here he is seen in July

    In 2005, Corgan dated musician Emilie Autumn for a number of months and in early 2006, Corgan moved in with Love and her daughter, Frances Bean Cobain.
    According to Love, he had his own wing in her new Hollywood Hills mansion.
    By 2010, Corgan and Love were on bad terms and he said: 'I have no interest in supporting her in any way, shape or form. You can't throw enough things down the abyss with a person like that.'
    The two got into a Twitter war about songs he wrote for her and she used,
    Jessica Origliasso from The Veronicas became his girlfriend in 2010 but they split in 2012: 'It's one of those things. It's really difficult when you spend so much time apart,' he said.
    It is not known when he started dating Mendel.

    This story is confusing me because the mom and daughter look the same age. And it doesn't help that the dad looks just like Alan Cumming.

    Well congrats to them I guess. I like some of his music but he mostly looks like the creepy guy in the neighborhood that you avoid.

    Juppiter? Does he want me to say it "Jewp-iter" and ignore his incorrect spelling or "Juhp-iter", like how they actually spelled it??

    It has to be "Juh-pitter". It's the only reason to add another P. Can't wait for his little sister Urannus to come along.

    That picture of him in the navy polka dot with the guitar is the MOST unflattering ever.

    I like some of their songs too, although the sound of his whiny wimpy girly voice gets on my nerves.

    I'm far less offended by the name Jupiter than I am the misspelling of it.

    The pic of the "grandparents" is actually the 22 year old daughter and her father. Another huge win for the Fail Fact-checker Force (Five).

    I love the name Augustus, but definitely not Juppiter. I don't really like Billy Corgan anyway, I've always thought he was a wanker.
