Celebrity dad round-up

Kelsey Grammer and Jason Schwartzman are dads-to-be, while Ronnie Wood congratulates Rod Stewart, and dad Nicholas Cage talks family films.

Possibly the biggest celeb baby news of the week is that Rod Stewart is to be a dad again, at the age of 66!


Rod’s been receiving well wishes from friends all over the music industry and Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood has been the latest to send his public wishes, “Good luck to him, he’s a great dad,” Ronnie told the crowd at a Faces reunion gig.

Over in the US, Frasier star Kelsey Grammer is soon to be a dad for the fifth time, at the age of 55.

Kelsey has only been seeing new girlfriend, 29-year-old Kayte Walsh, for a short while, but Kelsey’s representatives confirmed the pregnancy this week.

Not all celebrity dads-to-be this week are over 50 though, as 30-year-old Jason Schwartzman, star of Fantastic Mr Fox, is expecting his first child with wife Brandy.

“I’m expecting a child in December. So I am now thinking of ways to embarrass my unborn child,” Jason said on US TV show Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Another celebrity dad in the news this week is Nicolas Cage, a dad of two. The actor spoke to Metro about his love and respect for family films.


“Family movies are the ones that make a difference, parents have something the look forward to sharing with their children and vice versa. It’s like a ritual,” said Nicolas
