Is anyone else mildly disturbed by the fact that Rod Stewart is having another baby? The man is 66. This means he will be in his mid-seventies when his kid is only ten. I don’t think my granddad was even that age when I was ten? I know there’s always debates over whether there’s such a thing as being ‘too old’ to be a parent, and sure, as long as you can provide a child with a loving home then you should be fit to care for him or her, but you could also say that being so old you’re unable to kick a football around with your ten year old son just isn’t fair on the child. I don’t know ... there’s a lot of grey areas on this one, but I personally think sixty six is too old.
Even the fifties might be pushing it a bit ... Kelsey Grammar, AKA Fraiser, has also knocked up his girlfriend, at the ripe old age of fifty five. I think possibly the *shudder*-iest (yes its a word...) thing about this one though is that his girlf is only twenty nine ... and her mother is three years younger that Kelsey Grammar.
“Mummy ... why is daddy older than grandma?”
In fact, Rod Stewart’s daughter Kimberly is thirty one ... while his pregnant wife is thirty nine. She could have easily had a baby a few years ago – let’s say she had a three year old daughter. Her new auntie would be three years younger than her!
Alright alright, I know “Love conquers all” blah blah blah, but I just find all these age differences weird. My grandparents are old, and my aunties and uncles are all around about the same age as my parents. As they should be.
OK, so that might be a little close minded ... I prefer ‘traditional’ ... ;-)
