And last Sunday, Rod Stewart, 76, wrapped up warm as he proudly watched on as son Aiden, 10, played football in Hertfordshire.

Clad in dark tracksuit bottoms and a white zip-up jacket, Rod strolled around the edge of the pitch wearing trainers.

The singer ensured he didn’t catch a chill by layering up with a black padded coat boasting a faux-fur hood. 

Little Aiden rocked his white and green striped football kit with a bright orange bib over the top.

Rod recently revealed his regret over releasing his eighth album at the same time as Adele, telling BBC Radio 5’s Headliners podcast he’s never been fussed over ‘how many copies’ his albums sells, as people only ‘remember number ones’.

Coaching: Rod gave his son some advice while strolling past him

‘I’d rather not have this album coming out right now with Adele and, who else is coming out? Sting,’ Rod began. 

‘Everybody’s got an album coming out now. So I wanted my eighth number one album, so I wanted it to come out in the summer.

‘I don’t care about how many copies it sells. I just like that number one. People remember number ones,’ he continued.

Adele and Sting both released their latest albums on November 19 – Adele’s 30 and Sting’s The Bridge.

Rod also admitted to having had a ‘couple of good cries’ during lockdown, saying: ‘I’ve had a couple of good cries during the lockdown. What man hasn’t? I mean I did. I have my lovely wife to put her arms around me, pull me together, and all my kids.’

Rod is married to Penny Lancaster, 50, who he wed in 2006. The couple share sons Alastair, 15, and Aiden, 10 and Rod has six other children from his previous relationships.

He shares daughter Renee and son Liam with his second wife Rachel Hunter and children Kimberly and Sean with first wife Alana.

‘I like that number one’: Last week, Rod admitted his regrets in releasing his thirty-first studio album The Tears of Hercules at the same time as Adele and Sting (pictured in October)

Battle: ‘I’d rather not have this album coming out right now with Adele and, who else is coming out? Sting,’ Rod began. Adele released her album 30 on November 19 

Rod also has a daughter named Sarah from his relationship with Susannah Boffey in the sixties and shares Ruby with ex Kelly Emberg, who he dated from 1983-1990.  

Earlier this week, Rod appeared on the BBC One show earlier this week to discuss The Tears of Hercules and said it was ‘the best album he’s made in a long time’.   

He also revealed that one of the songs on the new album, Touchline, was dedicated to his father, who he says taught him and his brothers to love football. 

The crooner has also dedicated two tracks – I Can’t Imagine and Precious Memories – to his wife Penny.
