Penny Lancaster gives credit to her 6-year-old son Alastair for encouraging her to have another baby with Rod Stewart. The 40-year-old model went through three rounds of IVF before getting pregnant and giving birth to Aiden last February.
In an interview on UK TV show Lorraine she explained, “Alastair was the one that kept encouraging us to keep trying, saying ‘Please mummy I want a brother’, I was crossing my fingers actually that it wasn’t a girl because he wanted a brother so much. He’s ecstatic and the two of them have the most wonderful relationship.”
Lancaster and Stewart married in 2007 and now says they are the “biggest, happiest family”.
She said, “I knew when I met Rod it wasn’t a partnership with just two people, it was a family with everybody. There were times that were difficult at the beginning but with warmth and love and understanding we are now the biggest happiest family.
“Everyone’s invited, the kids come and meet us on trips. Sean came out to Florida to meet us for the New Year, Renee’s going to meet us in Australia on tour and then when we are home in Los Angeles, where we spend most of our time, they all come over for dinners, it’s wonderful.”
