Otis Stewart Kalick, her baby, was born on May 9, she revealed on Instagram. Ruby announced the news along with a photo of her newborn, sharing that the love she has for her son is "unlike any other love." She added, "I am only a mirror of what I feel from you. I can't remember what life was like before you. But nothing else matters now that you're here. Your arrival into the world marks the beginning of our family. It all started with you, Otis."
Rod Stewart's son, Liam Stewart, also announced the birth of his beautiful son on Instagram on May 12. He stated that the child's name was Louie Mark Roderick Stewart. Rod, whose full name is likewise Roderick, inspired the child's middle name. Along with the announcement, Liam released an adorable photo of his baby. The baby was dressed in a Celtic jersey, a beanie, and a white baby blanket.
Rod is overjoyed to be a grandfather, especially since he and Penny struggled with two miscarriages while trying to conceive. In an interview with Loose Women, Penny shared that she was "concerned" about getting her hopes up following the miscarriage she had suffered previously. "I had a miscarriage, so I was very cautious about building my hopes up," she recalled. "So I did a pregnancy test when I thought I'd missed a period - sure enough, it was positive."
She told the panel that women's pains are minimized. "Because we’re so good at hiding and putting a mask on and a band-aid on the problems, just getting on with life, making sure everyone is ok ‒ the house is running, the kids are off to school and the husbands," she shared. “[With] all these different roles we play and [work] in between. We forget about ourselves,” she added.
