London (ANI): British singer Rod Stewart is gearing up to become a dad for the eighth time, after he and his wife Penny Lancaster announced that she is three months pregnant. Stewart, 65, and Lancaster, 39, who has a son Alastair, four, discovered the pregnancy as they celebrated their third wedding anniversary in Italy in June.
The baby will arrive just weeks after Stewart"s 66th birthday next January, and shortly before Lancaster turns 40 in March. “We were thrilled and delighted to be able to tell Alastair that he was going to be the big brother to a little baby, expected just before Mummy"s 40th birthday," the Sun quoted them as saying on August 9.
The singer, who battled thyroid cancer in 2000, revealed he and his wife have been trying for a baby since last year. “It makes you want to keep very fit. I"m a pretty good 65. As a parent of a new child, I"ll maybe be around for 25 years at most. But it"ll be a happy, loving 25 years," he added.
