The Joy Of Six

by | 21st, October 2005

‘A PARENT’S ability to embarrass their children is infinite. Say the wrong thing in the wrong way and little Armani will scowl and wish she’d never been born and you were dead.

‘We are changing, we are changing…’

Mindful of this we read in the Sun that Rod Stewart has promised to take a year off work to be at home when his sixth child arrives.

Rod has admitted that he was an absent “drunk rock and roller” when his other children were growing up. And now he’s 60, he wants to try something new.

So he’s going to stay in and look after the little bundle of blonde hair, nose and legs that pops out of girlfriend Penny Lancaster. He even says he’ll change the nappies.

And that’s all well and good. All very new man. But given his age, we wonder whether this decision to stay in and watch Teletubbies has something to do with his advancing years.

So is Rod retiring? “Never,” says he. “I’ll sing until I’ve got no air left in my lungs.”

Great news. Although perhaps not such great news for little Rod or Rodetta. And we chill to the mental image of Rod dressed in leopard skin spandex singing and gyrating to the Wheels On The Bus.

All together now, kids: “If you think I’m sexy and you know it, clap your hands…”’
