Bit of a joke about Rod Stewarts kids! As a fan for years, my answer would be "Who the hell knows?" 🤣

I do know the 'official' number but as he has always openly said in his autobiography that he was a serial sh****r in his youth, there have been one or two claims of children popping up and that they are his.
