Rod proposed to her before they knew they were going to be parents: We’d been trying for a baby but we didn’t realise it would happen so quickly.
With his other six children, he didn’t have the time to take care of them: I know he wishes he’d had more time with his other kids when they were growing up, but he was working and he needed the work more than he does now.
As for Alastair: At this stage in life he’s able to spend more time with the family. It used to be all rock ‘n’ roll and it didn’t sit so well to walk around with a pram. But he’s achieved so much in his career he doesn’t have to keep up that image. Now pushing a pram isn’t the embarrassing thing he thought it was, it’s something to be very proud of.
She does not regret not never hiring a nanny: I think the biggest difference between Alastair and the other children is not having a nanny from the start, and actually just being with Daddy. It’s normally when you’ve got people to help that you hand a lot of things over to them. So it’s been good to be just the three of us.
Rod is just enjoying his father-son time: Now, if I have to be away from Rod, he’s like, ‘Of course I’ll miss you darling, but Alastair – just to see that face and not have his arms wrapped round my leg’. It’s such an attractive quality to see him being a father.

The couple is planning to have another child as well: Oneother child would be wonderful. If it’s a girl, great. But a little boywould be lovely, too – he might just have to wear pink once in a while!
