Rod Stewart announced today that he is going to be a father, again. For the 8th time! At the age of 65! For most people, having a child at the age of 65 would be more of a nightmare than a dream, but Rod and his wife Penny were “thrilled and delighted” with the news. Seems that Rod isn’t the only over the hill expectant Dad in Hollywood this year either! Here are 5 other Hollywood men who either became father’s later in life, or are about to become fathers!
Rene Angelil is husband of Canadian songstress Celine Dion, and is about to become a father for the 4th and 5th time this November. Angelil has 2 children from a previous marriage as well as his son Rene-Charles with Dion. At the ripe old age of 68, Angelil will be hard pressed to keep up with his 2 new bundles of joy!
After the devastating loss of their son earlier last year, Travolta, 56 and his wife actress Kelly Preston, 47 announced that they were expecting a new baby. The news came as no shock to those close to the couple who said that they had often talked about adding a 3rd child to the family.
The actor, famously known for his film and TV roles, including that of Felix Unger on The Odd Couple, became a father later in life much later in life! Although married to his first wife from 1942 1992, that marriage produced no children. It was with his 2nd wife, Heather Harlan, whom he married when he was 75 years old and she 25 years old, which produced his 2 children. Tony had his first child at the age of 77 and his second at 78 years old! That just seems so wrong to me!
Academy Award winning actor Anthony Quinn is known for his turbulent love life almost as much as he is known for his acting. The father of 12 children, 11th child was born when he was 78 years old, and his 12th born when he was 81 years old! All I can say to that is ewwwwww.
Sir Paul McCartney
Sir Paul had 4 children with his wife Linda McCartney whom he remained married until her death from breast cancer in 1998. In 2002 he married Heather Mills and became a father again in 2003 when his daughter, Beatrice was born. He was 61 at the time! He and Mills divorced in 2008.
There’s something about men who are the same age as my own father having babies of their own that doesn’t seem right to me. Babies are a lot of work and take a lot of energy, which is something that I think most men over the age of 60 just aren’t prepared for. I’m thinking that there will be a lot of Nannies helping out in these households! What do you think about these celebrities having their babies so late in life?
