Anthony Kiedis — with on-again, off-again girlfriend Heather Christie by his side — was on hand to mark the Malibu Lumber Yard opening on Tuesday, but it was fatherhood the 46-year-old rocker seemed most in the mood to celebrate. Calling 18-month-old Everly Bear the love of his life, Anthony added, “I feel very lucky to be his dad.” Lucky, indeed! The couple shared that Everly sleeps 11 hours straight each night, leading Anthony to proclaim his son “the best roommate” he’s ever had.
“He’s just a good hang. He’s funny. He doesn’t cost a lot to keep up.”
When asked how baby boy has changed him for the better, Anthony noted “you can’t really care about yourself as much as you used to.” Taking the focus off himself is “a good thing,” Anthony said, adding “it also gives me a cool guy to hang out with.” Everly is already showing signs of being “a good dancer,” and should he choose to pursue a career in music it sounds as though his dad won’t stand in the way. Says Anthony,
“I’m going to offer him as much as I can and he gets to choose what he wants to do.”
