Proud papa: Rod Stewart rocks the dad look, again

Rod-stewart Someone certainly wanted Rod Stewart's body and thought he was sexy. The rocker/sex symbol/father of model-actress Kimberly Stewart is expecting a new baby with his wife, model-photographer Penny Lancaster.

That brings to seven the total number of potential college tuitions for Stewart, who had five children from previous relationships as well as son Alastair with Lancaster, People tallies. (Although Wikipedia counts it as eight -- first daughter Sarah was given up for adoption).

"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 couple said in a statement.

The baby is due just weeks after rocker Stewart celebrates his 66th birthday, points out Sky News Online, which means he'll be a few years older than fellow British rocker Paul McCartney was when his last child, daughter Beatrice, was born.

What do you think of this latest addition to Hollywood's baby boom? Sound off in the comments.
