Stewart’s daughter Ruby, a 35-year-old fashion designer, announced in January that she was expecting her first child with fiance Jake Kalic. Rod, now 78, was very excited to learn he was going to be a grandpa for the second time, and even helped reveal the gender.

“It’s a boy. Born a Celtic!” Rod said, referring to his favorite soccer team. He then sang a “custom jingle,” his daughter wrote in an Instagram caption.

Ruby’s baby, Otis Stewart Kalick, was born on May 9.

I can’t remember what life was like before you… But nothing else matters now that you’re here,” Ruby wrote in a sweet Instagram caption. “Your arrival into the world marks the beginning of our family.”

But that wasn’t the only great news in the Stewart family this week: just days after little Otis was born, Rod welcomed another grandchild.

Stewart’s son Liam, a 28-year-old professional hockey player, welcomed his first child, Louie Mark Roderick Stewart (the Roderick in honor of his famous granddad), on May 12. Liam’s Instagram post describes the baby as “American, British, Croatian, Kiwi.”

It was definitely a memorable week for the Grammy-winning music superstar, welcoming his second and third grandchildren.

Adorable photos shared on Instagram show the “Maggie May” singer holding each of his newborn grandkids, calling himself a “happy granddad.”
