LOS ANGELES, Feb. 17 (UPI) -- Rod Stewart's publicist says the British rocker has become a father for the eighth time.

"Rod and Penny are thrilled... Mother and baby are healthy and blissfully happy," the representative told the magazine's Web site Thursday.

The baby weighed in at 7 pounds, 12 ounces.

Stewart, 66, and Lancaster, 39, have been married since 2007. They also have a 5-year-old son named Alastair.
