Baby number eight is on the way for 65-year-old rocker Rod Stewart, but he's only recently begun getting to know his eldest child, whom he had in his teens, he says in an upcoming interview on "The Joy Behar Show."
"The eldest [child] is in her 40s. Although I’m the biological father she was put up for adoption when I was 17 or 18 I think," he explained to Behar. "I was absolutely stone broke...and so she was put up for adoption. Only found out who her [biological] father was about 15 years ago."
Since the passing of her parents, Stewart says he and his daughter have attempted to build a relationship.
"Since her mum and dad have died, we’ve tried to come together and be close together, and it's working out pretty well," Stewart said. "I never felt like I was her dad, because I didn’t take her to school, change her nappies, there was no paternal thing there, but I’m trying."
