It’s a boy for Rod Stewart and Penny Lancaster. The couple welcomed their second child into the world on Wednesday. Aiden, the name chosen, weighed in at 7 lbs. 12 oz. According to M&C, a rep for the pair shared with hellomagazine.com, “After the long awaited arrival of their second child, Rod and Penny are proud and thrilled to welcome Alastair's baby brother Aiden into the world.” The couple revealed the news of a second child back in August 2010 and also shared that they went through three rounds of IVF prior to Lancaster’s pregnancy. This is Stewart’s eighth child and his second with Lancaster. Stewart and Lancaster have a five-year-old son named Alastair. People reports a statement made by Stewart back in August about Alastair becomming a brother: "We were thrilled and delighted to be able to tell Alastair that he was going to be a big brother."
