Sir Rod Stewart is set to become a grandfather for the third time as his son Liam announces surprise baby news.

Just weeks after Rod Stewart announced he was to welcome his second grandchild by daughter Ruby, a third grandchild is on the way!

The singer's son Liam, with ex-wife Rachel Hunter has revealed he is to welcome his first child with partner, Nicole Ann, with a beautiful video posted to his Instagram page.

The footage shows the pair having their first sonogram and even having a gender reveal next to their Christmas tree, alongside caption: "Mom + Dad | Baby Boy joins us in May."

But if the 28-year-old hockey player was ecstatic to share the news, his supermodel mum was even more overjoyed, writing a hilarious – and flustered – message on her son's post.

"Love you guys so exciteeddd the best Mum and Dad ever !!! I can’t wait !! finally I get to tell everyone," she said, adding: "Didn’t have my glasses on and put up the wrong heart !!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️."

Liam's pregnant sister Ruby Stewart, 35, wrote: "(Ugly crying) love you guys so happy for you two❤️," while sister Renee, 30, said: "Love you guys ❤️✨."
