Rod Stewart becomes a grandfather again as daughter Ruby gives birth

Sir Rod Stewart has become a grandfather twice in the one week as his daughter Ruby and son Liam both welcomed beautiful baby boys just days apart.

The 77-year-old rocker's daughter Ruby Stewart and her fiance Jack Kalic welcomed little baby Otis on Tuesday and Liam Stewart and his partner Nicole Artukovich were over the moon at their son Louie's arrival on Friday.

On Friday, just hours after his tot was born, Liam took to social media to announce that Louie Mark Roderick Stewart had arrived. Sharing a picture of the newborn on his Instagram, wearing a Celtic shirt and hat, Liam penned: "Welcome lad love you. American, British, Croatian, Kiwi. Louie Mark Roderick Stewart 5.12.23."

Liam, 28, is the son of rocker Rod and model Rachel Hunter. Rachel was Rod's second wife and they also share daughter Renee together.

And on Sunday, Ruby announced that her bundle of joy had arrived on Tuesday, just four days before their little cousin.

Ruby Stewart is the fourth of the rock and pop legend's eight children and is the daughter of former model Kelly Emberg, who was married to the musician between 1983 and 1990.

On Instagram, Ruby wrote: "This love… unlike any other love I’ve ever known…. I am only a mirror of what I feel from you… I can’t remember what life was like before you…. But nothing else matters now that you’re here… Your arrival into the world marks the beginning of our family… it all started with you Otis… Otis Stewart Kalick."

Rod is yet to publicly post about the two new arrivals to the Stewart clan but delighted step-mum Penny Lancaster flocked to the comments of the Liam and Ruby's post and wrote: "Congratulations that’s the look of love. Can’t wait for a hug."

Rod, 77, became a grandfather for the first time in 2011, aged 66, when Kimberley, now 43, had a daughter with actor Benicio Del Toro.
