Ruby Stewart and her partner Jake Kalick are set to welcome their first child, a baby boy.
Rod Stewart is getting ready to welcome his second grandchild. At a recent baby shower for daughter Ruby Stewart and her partner Jake Kalick, who are set to have their first child, the 78-year-old singer was seen with big grins, per PEOPLE. In a sweet picture that Rod's ex and Ruby's mom Kelly Emberg posted on Instagram on February 20, Rod smiled beside Ruby, Jake, Kelly, and Kalick's parents. She captioned the shot with hashtags, "It's a family affair," "we are having a baby" and "boy."
Last month, Ruby posted a video on Instagram Stories of the happy moment she discovered she was carrying a boy, per PEOPLE. Her dad had revealed the news to her by reading the baby's gender off of a sealed piece of paper. In the video, when Rod said, "It's a boy," celebrations broke out. After laughing and cupping her mouth, Ruby gave Kalick a big embrace. Rod gave them a fist bump and said, "Born a Celtic!" in honor of Glasgow Celtic, his favorite soccer team. "Another winkle in the Stewart family," he then started singing.
Ruby's post's caption read, "Avail of @sirrodstewart's gender reveal services! He will even create a unique jingle for the child you are carrying," joking about her dad's ability to write songs about everything. Rod had earlier published a rare family snapshot to his Instagram Stories on December 28 from the gender reveal party of the child, per PEOPLE. In the photo, he stood with his wife Penny Lancaster and six of his eight children in front of a massive, lit-up Christmas tree. Rod stood gleefully with his boys Aidan, 11, and Alastair, 17, whom he shares with Lancaster, as well as his grown children Renee, 30, Ruby, 35, Sean, 42, and Kimberly, 43, and added a "family time" sticker to the post.
Rod loves being a family man, as he shared in a PEOPLE interview that he has to adapt his parenting styles for all his children. "I have to be several different fathers because of the different age groups of my kids," he said. "You really have to treat all of them as individuals with individual problems. For instance, my 15-year-old is dating girls, so I had to give him a sex lesson. I just told him what he should and shouldn't do, but he's on top of it. He was like, 'Dad, I've got the internet. I know everything.'"
"All the [older] kids went through their little bad period of drinking too much and dabbling in drugs — except for Liam; I don't think he ever did — but they all came out on the other side," he continues. "As a dad, I've learned to listen and not blow my top."
