Some guys really do have all the luck... as this picture proves.
There are few men who manage to stay on good terms with so many of their loves. But Sir Rod Stewart, who has eight children with five different women, showed how close he remains to the mothers of seven of his children by gathering four of them together to pose during a family celebration.
Taken at the 40th birthday party for his daughter Kimberly in Los Angeles, the photo is believed to be the first time that so many of his exes have been seen together.

Naturally, the 74-year-old singer is at the centre of the snap, dressed in a silk waistcoat and his trademark leopard-print loafers. Next to him is his wife, Loose Women panellist Penny Lancaster, 48.
She's the only of the quartet who can call herself Lady Stewart, as Rod was not knighted until 2016.
They have two sons, Alastair, 12, and Aiden, eight. To Penny's right is Kimberly's mother, actress Alana Stewart, 74, who was Sir Rod's first wife. During their five-year marriage she also had a son, Sean, who is now 38 and a musician.
On Sir Rod's left is his former girlfriend, model Kelly Emberg, 60, with whom he has a daughter, Ruby, 32 – who followed in her father's footsteps and became a singer.
Kelly shared the photograph with friends, joking: 'A mothers' reunion.' To her left is Sir Rod's second wife, model Rachel Hunter, 49. They had two children together: Renee, a 27-year-old dancer and yoga teacher, and Liam, 24, a professional ice hockey player in his mother's native New Zealand.
Sir Rod has spoken of how close he is to the three old flames. 'They all live within three minutes of me, and we've all got children together,' he said last year.
'So we've got to be in each other's lives for the rest of our lives.'
However, conspicuous by her absence at the party was Susannah Hourde. She had a daughter with Sir Rod, Sarah Streeter, 56, who was given up for adoption.
'The reality is that he's got a daughter whose life he messed up for a very long time — and my life, too,' Susannah said in 2013.
Her daughter has, though, been reunited with Sir Rod and said: 'I used to be like Susannah, full of resentment, but then I realised that dwelling on the past doesn't get you anywhere.'
A lawsuit filed Wednesday claims a Clark County man was injured in 2017 when Rod Stewart launched a soccer ball into the crowd during his show on the Las Vegas Strip.
It isn’t the first time someone has made such an allegation in court. The Associated Press previously reported that a California man filed a lawsuit that accused Stewart of breaking his nose with a soccer ball at a 2012 show on the Strip.
Glen Garofano filed the new complaint in Clark County District Court. It alleges that on Aug. 27, 2017, Garofano was knocked down and injured as other concertgoers attempted to retrieve a soccer ball that Stewart sent into the crowd during a show in the Colosseum at Caesars Palace.
Both Stewart and Caesars Palace are named as defendants. Caesars Entertainment declined to comment Thursday on the lawsuit. Attempts to reach Stewart were unsuccessful.
Garofano suffered injuries to his back, groin and legs, and he is still receiving treatment for them, according to his attorney, Mitchell Posin. He is seeking damages of more than $15,000, plus attorney fees.
“Stewart intentionally threw and/or kicked one or more soccer balls into the concert audience, knowing that said action had caused injuries to multiple members of concert audiences in the past,” the complaint alleges.
The complaint cited at least two other instances when someone was injured at one of Stewart’s concerts by a soccer ball. The earliest injury mentioned in Garofano’s complaint happened July 5, 1989, when Patricia Boughton was injured by a soccer ball, which caused her “permanent disfigurement,” according to the complaint.
Garofano claimed Stewart was served with a lawsuit from Boughton in 1991.
The new complaint also mentioned a lawsuit from the Southern California man who claimed his nose was broken during Stewart’s Caesars Palace show in October 2012. The man, Mostafa Kashe, suffered “substantial” injuries, including an impaired sense of smell, Kashe’s lawyer told AP in 2014.
According to Kashe’s complaint, Stewart was negligent in part because he had “significant experience in the sport of soccer and experience in kicking soccer balls, having previously tried out for a professional soccer (football) team in the UK.”
Kashe’s suit was settled out of court, online records show.
In November 2015, a New Jersey woman filed a complaint in District Court alleging that Stewart had kicked autographed soccer balls into the crowd during a Las Vegas show on Nov. 24, 2013.
According to the complaint, Nancy Voneilbergh was struck by another audience member who was attempting to get a soccer ball, causing her to fall onto a set of stairs and hit a wall. She suffered “bodily injury, pain and suffering,” the complaint said.
Voneilbergh’s suit was voluntarily dismissed, court records show.
Posin compared the litigation surrounding Stewart’s use of soccer balls at concerts to parenting a small child who throws a ball in the house.
“He’s not going to break something every time, but he is going to break things,” Posin said. “And if he keeps throwing the ball in the house and he keeps breaking things, eventually there needs to be bigger consequences.”
He is an iconic singer known for his youthful looks and sense of style.
And Rod Stewart cut a dapper figure as he stepped out in Beverly Hills, Californiaon Wednesday.
The You Wear It Well singer, 74, looked handsome in a rakish white fedora hat, paired with aviator shades as he stepped into the LA sunshine.
The handsome rocker flashed a glimpse of his bronzed chest in a crisp open-necked white shirt, which he paired with ripped cream chinos.

Having concluded his first set of European dates, Stewart now continues on to the North American leg of the tour – including an eight-show reprise of his Caesar’s Palace residency. He returns in November for 13 stadium spectaculars at eight venues across the UK and Ireland, with stops in Glasgow, Leeds and Manchester, before finishing the year at London’s O2.
