Second Child on the Way for Bryan Adams

Bryan Adams Expecting Second Child
Bryan Adams

Bryan Adams has a new reason to sing straight from the heart: He’s going to be a dad again.

“There’s another baby on the way for singer Bryan Adams and Alicia Grimaldi,” the rocker-photographer’s rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.

“Their daughter, Bunny Grimaldi-Adams, is now 18 months old, and the new baby is due next year.”

Adams, 53, was thrilled when he realized Grimaldi, the co-founder of his charitable foundation, would be making Bunny a big sister.

“Alicia’s either eaten too much chocolate cake or we’re expecting another baby …I think it’s a baby,” he jokingly tells PEOPLE.

Adams resumes his latest U.S. tour on Dec. 10 in Tulsa, Okla., where he’ll also celebrate his first photography book, Exposed, which was released in early November.

Bunny????!!!! It is a person not a stuffed animal.

aj on

Supose to be almost done raising kids at that age not just starting. Looking forward to grandkids not your own!

me on

I know right? By 53 all 4 of my kids will be adults. I have a hard enough time keeping up with them at 30 I can’t imagine 53.

whoknew on

Awww……I wanted to have his baby. I’ve always had the hots for him.

ceci on

That’s great news! I love his 80’s hits.

BH on

Are they married?

Lorii on

Congrats!! I love Bryan Adams!! πŸ™‚


Why not marry the woman already,set a good example for your chidren. If you love her do the right thing! Have no respect for men who have children with women who they have a long term relationship with and make house with but marrying them isn’t in their plan! Growup!

Missk on

Awesome but please give the child a normal name…. Bunny???? Poor little girl!

angela on

please not another name like bunny

jessica laine on

Congrats Bryan!

Selfenchanted on

Nice!! All the best to the family!

Heather on

Congrats to them, but I’m having a hard time keeping up with a 2 year old and a 6 month old at 33…I can’t imagine at 53!

cris on

Love Bryan….love love love…Best wishes.

LMN on

Goodness…why can’t these older men just keep it zipped. He will be in his 70s when the kid graduates from high school. Yuck.

Congrats to the growing family. πŸ™‚

Mirabella Bunny Grimaldi-Adams is her full name, they just choose to call her by her middle name…it’s cute – get over it people!!!

Glad they are happy and he is enjoying life and expanding his family – congrats to them both πŸ™‚

Maybe this one will be named Pumpkin or Santa.

Hey A.J. None of your business but look at this way. He has the means to arrange for financial and physical help for himself when/if he needs it – the burden won’t fall on his young children. “old” men have been having babies since the beginning of time πŸ˜‰

I’m pretty sure he and the mother are not a couple (whether he is gay or not, I have no idea)…perhaps this is a beautiful example of people raising a child together without being a couple.

Selfenchanted on

He’s seems so much healthier than so many 53 y.o.. Don’t hate him for waiting until he was truly ready.

Snerk on

@ whoknew, me too!

Snerk on

I have to laugh at all these old man comments. I saw Bryan in concert in June and he has an unbelievable amount of energy. Huge congrats to Bryan and Alicia… And Bunny too!

Diana on

Congrats to the happy couple! Love him and I’m so happy for them!!

m on

Bunny is a cute nickname when your little but when you grow up it sounds to stripperish.

Andrea on

Congratulations to them! I just hope the child has a normal name unlike his daughter. Bunny is just weird…

jsp81355 on

I’m so happy to hear the good news.

I use to love Bryan Adams. However after the way he treated the staff of the very small venue here in town, and dissing the fans who were waiting for 2 hours for him to sign their albums, seriously he drove right by the 2 remaining fans that were outside. I was not one of those fans by the way. I was waiting for a member of the venue staff to get off work. I lost total respect for him. It would have taken a couple of seconds to roll down the window and thank them. I went home that night and removed him off of my MP3. What a diva jerk

Tracy on

I had a very different experience. I was lucky enough to get to an after show party & meet Bryan – and he was wonderful. Polite, considerate and just a real gentleman. I also became friends with one of the hotel security staff, who told me how blown away all the hotel staff were at how decent Bryan was

Well sperm count does go down as men age.

awww. so cute!

NM on

@rori808-IF you read the article, “Bunny” is the big sister! Perhaps a nickname! They aren’t talking about the baby to be!

whoknew on

I looked up info. on the baby’s full name. It’s Mirabella Bunny Adams. So, she does have a girl’s first name. Guess they call her by her middle name as a child, since it’s cute.

Anonymous on

Congrats! Im sure he is in a better shape then most of us in our 30s πŸ™‚ and i. Believe i read somewhere that bunny was added to her name cuz she is born on easter day.

Anonymous on

Tori- Why do you assume he’s the one that doesn’t want to get married? For all we know, he’d marry her in a heartbeat and it’s HER that doesn’t want to tie the knot! If that is the case, then I’m glad he’s not forcing her into marriage just because it’s the “right” thing to do!

At any rate, congrats to them! πŸ™‚

Niche on

When they first had their daughter, they were just friends. Now they’re expecting another kid and their more than likely still friends. She’s his babymama.

dudley doright on

love bryan adams, congrats to him & his girl

“Maybe this one will be named Pumpkin or Santa.”

LOL. I haven’t laughed this hard in a while.

I'm Standing Right Behind You on

I love him…congrats and many blessings to the family!

Looks like a cow licked his hair . .a. beach front wave . .?? Gross

Lee on

Bunny as a girl’s name is of English origin and not that uncommon nor new or hip. It is also the name of a family member of mine and the daughter of a neighbor both of whom were named that in the 1960s.

Lori on

It is not his first photography book, but actually his fourth!! Congrats to the Gimaldi-Adams family πŸ™‚

Lori on

Sure he has lots of energy, non drinker, non smoker and 100% vegan πŸ™‚ Try it and you’ll have lots of energy too!

Vivian on

I’m 43 with a 4 year old girl, my one and only. I am healthy and fit and have more patience at this age then in my 30s. There are older parents who manage quite well. He’s 53 and this is his time to enjoy a family and another career. I’m very happy for them. What a bunch of negative people on this board.

summer on

Congrats to the family…maybe “Bambi” will join “Bunny”…LOL

Kim on

So very happy for you and Alicia! Kiss beautiful Bunny for me.

For all you who are so negative, please look in the mirror and judge. Bryan is a wonderful man, if only you knew. He is beautiful inside and out. Why do people insist on judging?

Kim on

Congrats to Bryan and his family. I loved him and still love his music and he still looks good.

Angie on

Why are people saying Bryan Adams is too old to have kids?? Like it’s not possible for a younger parent(s) to pass??

Canada Rocks on

@Tori – he’s Canadian and we don’t care about stuff like that. We like to see people live their lives their way. Hope that helps you figure out that his marital status is truly none of your business (or mine for that matter – but I’m ok with that)

Congrats Brian and Alicia …

Canada Rocks on

About the age issue – my sister died 2 years ago at the age of 45 and she had a child. Should she not have had one for fear she was going to die early ??? Not sure what age has to do with having kids. The ability and desire to be a good parent and to be able to afford them is WAY more important to me. I’m thinking my welfare dollars are going to the young people and their kids, not people who have kids later in life.

Sharon on

Totally agree, Canada Rocks!

Sharon on

Why do people worry about how old he is? There are men a lot older than that who become fathers. Its not like hes on oxygen and using a walker! Chill out and stop worrying about what other people do. Congrats to them, by the way! My guess is another girl πŸ™‚

melisa on

What a bunch of negative people posting here. 53 is by no means elderly. If this man and his partner can give children a life full of love and comfort, WTF are you to judge and say he should be having grandkids instead?? Go worry about the dumpster babies of the world and leave this guy alone.
