Rod Stewart, who announced earlier this month he and 39,year old wife Penny Lancaster are expecting their second baby together, is worried about the cost of supporting all his children.

The Maggie May rocker, who has six children from four previous relationships, as well as four-year-old Alistair with Penny, said: “I'm very happy but it will be the last. I can't have any more kids, otherwise I'll be touring until I'm 90.”

Stewart found out about the pregnancy when he and Penny were celebrating their third wedding anniversary in Italy three months ago. He has broken the news to his other children and says they are thrilled that he and Lancaster are finally adding to their family.

He told Australia’s Channel 9 News programme: "They've known for a couple of years we've been trying for a baby and they're delighted."

Although they don’t know the sex of the baby, Stewart said if it is a boy he will follow his tradition of giving him "a Celtic name".

The 65-year-old star also promised fans will get a glimpse of the youngster when he is performing live.

He said: “I might bring them out on stage once or twice, I wouldn't want to exploit him or her though.

“It's good for the kids to see where their daddy works.”

Rod's other children are Kimberley, 30, and Sean, 29, with his first wife Alana Hamilton. He and model Kelly Emberg also have a daughter Ruby, 23.  Stewart and his second wife Rachel Hunter have two children, Renee, 18, and Liam, 15.

His eldest daughter, Sarah, 46, was born when he was 19 and was brought up in a children’s home until she was four, before being adopted.
