Sir Rod Stewart is set to welcome his second grandchild later this year after his daughter Rub announced her pregnancy in a sweet video on Monday.
The legendary singer, 77, shared the exciting news to his 1.2million followers on Instagram in a clip originally posted by mum-to-be Ruby, 35, of the baby’s gender reveal party.
In the heart-warming video, Rod opens up a piece of paper before exclaiming ‘it’s a boy!’ and singing ‘another winkle in the Stewart family’ – a reference to his beloved Celtic FC.
Sir Rod is already a proud dad of eight: Sarah, Kimberly, Sean, Ruby, Rennee, Liam, Alastair and Aiden who he welcomed with five different partners.
Here’s everything you need to know about his eight children…
Sir Rod welcomed his first child Sarah Streeter with his ex Susannah Boffey in 1963. The couple were only teenagers at the time and decided to place Sarah up for adoption.
She was raised by her adoptive parents Gerald and Evelyn Thubron.
Rod moved on and married his first wife Alana Stewart (nee Hamilton) in 1979 who gave birth to Kimberly, now 43. Kimberly welcomed Rod’s first grandchild in August 2011 with then partner actor Benicio Del Toro.
In 1980, Rod’s third child (and eldest son) Sean made his arrival into the world.
Sean, 42, followed in his father’s footsteps in music and is known for appearing on the 2006 US reality show Sons of Hollywood.
He also dates The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Adrienne Maloof in 2013 and was linked to the Hills actress Audrina Partidge.
Rod and Alana broke up in 1984 and three years later he fell in love with Kelly Emberg.
Together they had baby Ruby in 1987, now a mum-to-be making Rod a grandad for a second time this year.
Despite being the child of rockstar Rod, Ruby has made her own name for herself out of the shadow of her father.
She initially followed her mothers footsteps, hitting the catwalks at the likes of London Fashion Week before making her way into the music business.
She teamed up with Alyssa Bonagura to form the country-rock band The Sisterhood and they even toured with Rod.
Ruby has two younger step-siblings from Rod’s second marriage to Rachel Hunter.
Renee Cecil Stewart was born in June 1992 and Liam McAlister Stewart was born in September 1994.
Renee is now a professional dancer and studied at the London Contemporary Dance School.
Liam, on the other hand, went into sports and has spun a massive hockey career now playing professionally for the Milton Keynes Lightning team.
Rod re-married for a third time in 2007 to his current wife Penny Lancaster.
The loved-up couple have had two children together: Alastair in 2005 and Aiden in 2011.
Both of the boys are still at school with Alastair just 16 and Aiden 11.
