Inside Rod Stewart's Big family with Eight Kids
One of the most accomplished musicians, Rob Stewart has it all, from a massively successful career with a staggering net worth to a big happy family with eight kids.
Although his eight kids are from three different relationships, he shares a tight knitted bond with all his children, which pretty much reflects through his social media posts.
But it wasn't always the case. Rod, who became a father at the young age of seventeen, left his firstborn, Sarah Streeter, for adoption while young. However, several decades later, he reunited with his daughter, making up for all the decades the father-daughter had spent apart from each other.
The heart-warming reunion of the father-daughter grabbed all the buzz when Sarah came forth talking about her newfound relationship with her biological father.
It was lovely having a catch-up, just the three of us.
Shared Sarah while talking to Dailymail about seeing her father at a music event where Rod invited her along with her spouse.
While Rod's other kids remained on the spotlight since their birth, Sarah, on the other hand, only came to know about her celebrity father when she reached eighteen.
Sarah reconnected with her father, Rod, only after the death of her adoptive parents.
Talking about her experience through the initial stage of father-daughter reconnection, she remarked,
It's taken its time because he's not just my dad, is he? He's a big star. So, of course, that makes it difficult, especially when, like me, you lack confidence.
Over time the two caught up really well, and now their bond seems like they never separated in the past.
During the time of her mother's death, Sarah was at a depth of drug addiction but recognizing the turmoil her addiction had brought to her loved ones, she said,
Why I'm still here, I don't know. I carry a huge amount of guilt about what I put people through. The way it affected my family and loved ones was terrible.
Despite her guilt, she chose to become honest about the time she hit rock bottom.
Nevertheless, the result of Rod's young romance with his then-girlfriend, Susannah Boffey, has finally come to light after a decades-long separation. And, Rod has now rolled up his sleeves, taking on his position as a father to his firstborn.
