Rock star Rod Stewart has become a dad for the eight time after his wife Penny Lancaster gave birth to their son Aiden.
The pair went through a gruelling round of IVF treatment to get pregnant, and revealed in August that it had finally worked and that they were expecting.
Penny is Rod’s third wife, and the pair have been together for 10 year. On finding out she was expecting her second child she said, “I couldn’t believe it. I burst into tears. I called Rod when I was still sobbing,”
Aiden was born on Wednesday morning, weighing 7lb 12oz. A spokesperson for the duo said they were ‘proud and thrilled’ to have had the child, and that ‘Mother and baby are healthy and blissfully happy’.
Rod now has 8 children, with Aiden joining Alistair, 5, Liam, 15, Renee, 18, Ruby, 23, Sean, 29, Kimberley, 30 and Sarah, 46.
