British rock legend Rod Stewart has lived a life many would only dream about. His career took off in the 60s, and it was all about the music and the girls. At 17 years old, Steward was already a dad. However, he was not ready to take a responsibility of being a parent, so his baby daughter was given for adoption.

But now, the singer is a loving dad to his eight children. Although, not all of them got to feel his fatherly love when growing up.

Talking honestly

When speaking with Lorraine Kelly on her show, the rock legend didn’t hold anything back. He revealed that he plans his tours around his kids’ holidays so that they can all go together. But it wasn’t always like that.

Stewart added that his two eldest children, 38-year-old Kimberly and 37-year-old Sean, didn’t appreciate him going on tours so often when they were kids.

The oldest two, Kim and Sean, I was on tour so much they didn't really see so much of their dad and there was some bad feelings about that. I explained, 'Listen, your dad wasn't out there partying every night, I was working my bum off, because I was in debt to the tune of about $1million.' I had to work my way out of debt.

Luckily, now, the musician can put his kids first, and he spends as much time with them as possible.

Still touring

At 73, the rock legend is not ready to quit touring, as he enjoys it too much.

Everything has to come to an end eventually. But, the thing is, I enjoy it so much. To get up there on the stage and send people home happy, hopefully, it's a gift from God, it really is.

The singer also made an emotional return to the music scene with a sensational new song “Didn’t I”, which describes the horrible effect of taking drugs from a parent’s perspective.

Stewart is also preparing to release a new album after a three-year break from music.
