Penny Lancaster, 50, has spoken about her husband, Sir Rod Stewart’s youthfulness, as she discussed him being an older father. The former model spoke candidly about the rockstar while on Loose Women today and remarked how men like to “spread their seed”.
My rockstar has got the fitness of a 35-year-old
Penny made the remarks when she was asked about Rod being an older father on the ITV chat show and what it meant to her.
The TV personality married the Maggie May singer in 2007 and gave birth to their first son together when he was 60, before welcoming their second when he was 65-years-old.
When the panel asked if she was conscious of him being an older dad, Penny replied: “Not at all.”
“A lot of older women have children and of course it’s much harder for them, men can have children at any age, and I think it just depends on what kind of older man you are.
“My rockstar has got the fitness of a 35-year-old and he’s not retired. So I don’t consider him in that older category.”
Penny added: “It’s really been so amazing for my boys because of his traditional values and the morals that he’s instilled and the boys have naturally picked up, those kind of more old-fashioned values.
“I think the younger generation, they sort of skip over those things.”
She also said: “He’s had the time to reflect and learn the lessons of the past.
“He does have regrets of not being there for the older ones, but he’s certainly made up for it and we’re one big family now, all of us.”
Janet Street-Porter also gave her opinion on the matter, as she discussed female fertility.
She said: “We always talk about older dads and of course older women don’t have that option.
“How often do you ever hear of a 28-year-old man marrying a woman age 60, it just doesn’t work that way around and I suppose you know society will have come a bit further down the road regarding that more as normal than freakish, as it is at the moment.”

“You’re not so fertile at that age though,” Penny interjected.
Janet continued: “No but there are women now having babies through surrogates and so on…
“But men like to spread their seed, it’s part of their generation,” Penny replied, causing the panel to gasp.
Janet laughed: “I think we’ll park that one!
“I might want to spread my seed but it might be an awfully long wait for anything to happen!”
Penny began dating Rod back in 1999 before Rod got down on one knee and asked for her hand in marriage at the top of the Eiffel Tower.
The couple’s wedding plans were halted when Penny discovered she was expecting their first child.
Penny gave birth to Alastair Wallace Stewart on November 27, 2005.
Penny and Rod married on June 16 2007 in Portofino, Italy. The couple exchanged vows in the presence of family and friends.
They are also parents to a second child (Rod’s eighth child), Aiden Patrick Stewart.
