Anthony Kiedis Says Everly is 'a Good Hang'

04/23/2009 at 11:30 AM ET

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.”

Everly Bear is a little cutie, and I am just going to say it because I can see it. I see a little Suri Cruise in him in this picture.

Everly is cute.

I love this duo! They are just so cute! It would be nice for Everly if mum and dad could be happy together again. I love the way Anthony talks about his son, it’s so sweet.

‘on again, off again’? where did that come from? i meant that ‘on’ part?

Is it unusual for a 18-month-old to sleep 11 hours straight per night?? My son has slept that long since maybe 3 or 4 months old. I thought that was how long they were supposed to sleep each night… (Maybe it’s the “straight” part that’s unusual? Do most kids wake up at night??) Maybe I’m lucky too, gosh!!!!

Nimbusi – I think it’s probably down to the fact that Heather was with Anthony that night, I don’t recall reading anything else about them together again. It only takes one encounter to be linked in the media!

Yes, they attended the event together as a couple and were photographed kissing yesterday also. The reporter that attended the event and gathered the quotes said they appeared to be on-again so we’ll see!

mmh- I don’t know if it’s unusual or not, but, according to my mother, I also slept through the night at a very early age.
