Rod Stewart - Rod Stewart's advice to daughters
Rod Stewart advises his daughters to have their own room while travelling with rockstars and to always book their own return tickets.
Rod Stewart advises his daughters to have their own room while travelling with rockstars.
The 68-year-old musician is an ''easy-going dad'' when it comes to his girls - Sarah, 40, Kimberley, 33, Ruby, 25, and Renee, 20 - and their love lives, but insists they take caution if choosing to date a musician and makes they are safe before the jet off around the globe by confirming they have separate rooms at hotels and a return ticket.
He said: ''I'm a pretty easy-going father, sometimes a little too easy-going ... I did warn my daughter when she was going out with a would-be rock star - I won't say which one, hell of a nice fellow - and she asked to travel with him.
I said, 'Whatever you do, before you even get on the plane, a return air-fare, first class and your own room.' I would always send a return air-fare but never their own room unless it was someone really special. My kids have read the book - they know what I like.''
Rod - who also has sons Liam and Sean from previous marriages and Alastair and Aiden with current wife Penny Lancaster - feels 100 per cent content in his own skin and is ''proud'' of his journey to fame and large family.
He added in an interview with Mojo magazine: ''Yeah [being Rod Stewart is still fun]. I must admit I absolutely love it. I don't think there's one aspect of being me I don't like.
''I'm very proud of the fact that I've kept my feet on the ground and I'm very close to my family and friends who are not in show business.''
