Rocker Rod Stewart Explains Daughters Adoption: “I was Stone Broke”
This guy has kids coming out of the woodwork! With baby number 8, yes EIGHT, due in the beginning of March with wife number three, Penny Lancaster, legendary rocker Rod Stewart is about to give Octomom a run for the title.
But Stewart hasn’t always played the role of perfect dad. In a recent interview with Joy Behar, Rod recently revealed why he gave up baby number 1 for adoption way back when in the ‘60s. According to Stewart he was “absolutely stone broke” at the time of her birth. Maybe he was just absolutely stoned…..
Anyway, his first child, and daughter, Sarah Streeter, now 46, has recently reunited with her biological father now that her adoptive parents have both passed on.
According to Stewart, he reached out to Streeter three years ago. "I never felt like I was her dad, because I didn’t take her to school, change her nappies, there was no paternal thing there, but I'm trying." Props to Rod for at least showing some responsibility.
Streeter is the love child from a teenage romance Rod had in the ‘60s with an art student. “There’s no anger there. I never was angry about what happened, just sad,” recalls Streeter. And props to Streeter who seems to have accepted how things worked out the way they did. I mean her dad is Rod Stewart. He’s fathered eight children with five different women. This is the man who once said, “Instead of getting married again, I'm going to find a woman I don't like and just give her a house.”
Either way Rod, eight is enough.
