Rod Stewart talks about his children and Alastair
The Forever Young hitmaker was speaking to presenter Ryan Tubridy on the show The Late Late Show in Ireland. Rod said:
‘First it was Fortnite, now he has got his phone, so it is all girls. There is a side I feel I have lost in him in the past two or three years.’
The iconic rocker feels that this decrease in interactions is due to the adolescent phase in the life of Alastair. He understands his son and does not want to change anything. Rod further explained:
‘I suppose it’s growth, he is becoming a teen, and it is an awkward time for him. I miss him so much. I miss the boy in him.’
