Rod Stewart and his son Alastair out shopping in Beverly Hills, California on February 19, 2015. Rod bought a new suit for himself before hopping in a Rolls Royce.
The iconic rock singer is renown for his liaisons with women, but also for being very close to his children. He has eight kids by five different mothers, but
somehow seems to find a way to spend proper time with each of them. This time Rod Stewart was busy shopping with his 10-year older Alastair Wallace and it seems the two were quite enjoying the time
And why shouldn’t they be happy? After all we’re looking at the perfect son-and-father type of situation. Just imagine it. The parent takes his kid out and about with a Rolls-Royce Ghost. The young fellow enjoys himself jumping all over the place, being excisted he’s able to buy whatever he wants from the shop. Meanwhile everybody’s looking at them like they saw a family of Martians.
And Rod Stewart isn’t just a blue rock singer that has had 16 top ten singles in the US, with four reaching number one on the Billboard Hot 100. No, he’s not just one of the best-selling music artists of all time, having sold over 100 million records worldwide. Rod the Mod is also a gentleman who loves driving in style. Sure, the auto industry knows the Sailing singer as a devoted Ferrari driver. In fact we wrote about his daily driver, a Ferrari 458 Spider.
Yet, when it comes to family exceptions are to be made. After all, we are looking at a 70-year old rock legend with an estimated fortune of £115 million ($176.6 million).
It’s no wonder he wants his kids to ride in style and the Rolls-Royce Ghost was created exactly for this eccentric purpose. The limousine is that luxurious, comfortable and flashy it will make you want to give up the driving seat to take the passenger’s instead.

They were enjoying a romantic pre-Valentine's Day date night as they headed out for dinner together.
And Rod and Penny Stewart certainly ensured all eyes were well and truly on them as they arrived at Bouchon in Beverly Hills on Thursday evening.
The couple - who raise two sons together - both opted for loud ensembles for their dinner date at the French eatery, rocking contrasting patterns for their night out.
Rod, 70, continued his penchant for wacky dressing in a floral shirt with a pristine white collar, which he teamed with black skinny jeans.
Proving he hasn't lost his rock god edge, the Maggie May hitmaker completed his look with a black leather jacket and a pair of quirky leopard print shoes.
Model Penny, 43, put on a glamorous display for the pair's date night, showcasing her seemingly endless legs in a chic monochrome striped flowing maxi dress.
The statuesque catwalk queen teamed her stylish gown with a smart black blazer and a simple clutch, while wearing low-key pumps on her feet so not to tower over her man.
Penny completed her look with natural make-up to complement her naturally striking features, and wore her glossy blonde locks hanging loosely around her shoulders.

It's a well known fact that legendary singer Rod Stewart loves his tartan, but he took his eccentric dressing to a whole new level on Monday when he stepped out in bright yellow trousers.
Running errands in Studio City, California, the 70-year-old teamed the unusual fashion choice with a crisp but baggy white shirt.
But appearing to take a leaf out of Simon Cowell's book, he unbuttoned several buttons of the cotton top, no doubt keen to top up his tan a little
Topping off his look with smart brogues and a crucifix necklace, Rod enjoyed his day off as he visited a local hobby shop
It's little wonder that he's enjoying some down time, as the rock icon celebrated his 100th performance at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
To mark the milestone, Stewart was joined on stage by eight showgirls from Jubilee at Bally's Las Vegas while performing his hit Twistin' The Night Away.
After the show, the showgirls joined Stewart backstage for a photo opp with a celebratory cake.
Rod is now set to tour Australia in March, which will see him perform in all the major cities.
Speaking about his already sold out show's Down Under on the Today show, Rod said This job never feels like work, but down there [Australia] it really doesn't feel like work...the audience is wonderful, the weather's great.'
Rod is celebrating over 50 years in the entertainment industry and he said that it is something he has never taken for granted.
'People ask me "When are you going to stop?" and my answer always is that's something I can't decide. I think the public decide for you.

Richard Wilkins conducted an exclusive interview with British rock legend Rod Stewart for the Today Show on Wednesday.
The 60-year-old entertainment editor for Channel Nine's morning program was on location in Hollywood for the chat with the iconic singer and the catch up wasn't the only thing that caught the attention of viewers.
Richard and Rod's matching hairstyles were on display as the two veterans spoke, with the only difference separating the two was the 70-year-old musicians much lighter blonde hair.
Crossing back to the Sydney studio, co-host Karl Stefanovic joked: 'It's like two peacocks in the hen house!' to which Richard laughed at the comparison.
The interview which took place at Rod's LA home, was arranged ahead of the Have I Told You Lately singer's Australian tour this March, which will see him perform in all the major cities.
Speaking about his already sold out show's Down Under Rod said 'This job never feels like work, but down there [Australia] it really doesn't feel like work...the audience is wonderful, the weather's great
Rod is celebrating over 50 years in the entertainment industry and he said that it is something he has never taken for granted.
'People ask me "When are you going to stop?" and my answer always is that's something I can't decide. I think the public decide for you.'
Richard who has also been reporting for the Nine network for over 25 years, has built a close relationship with Rod, interviewing him a number of times over his illustrious career.
He was escorted personally by the London born performer around his mansion during the interview, including a tennis court which was made in to a personalised football field.
Richard also made a light hearted joke at his old friend's expense after the singer said 'I am grown up and trying to write songs that would appeal to people my age and maybe a little younger.'
'Well, that's nearly everybody!' Richard quipped as the two burst in to laughter

Die hard fan: Rod had the emblem for his favourite football team, Celtic embedded on the wall of his personalised court

Rod is the father to eight different children from five different female partners, however he has been married to his third wife Penny Lancaster for eight years.
He said one of the downsides of having a big family was when his older children came over to visit - he has a circular driveway which he got blocked off by barricades and Rod revealed it was an effort to keep his kids from parking there.
'My children park on the circle with their cars and that means no one can get in or out..it really annoys me.'
'And they say things like "What sort of father does that?" I do!' he smirked.
His Australian tour kicks off in Perth on March 2
The Maggie May hitmaker has released five volumes of re-worked classic tracks since 2002 but Dylan was let down by the project because he felt Stewart's heart was not "into it" enough.
Dylan, who released his own album of classic covers, called Shadows in the Night, last month (Jan15), tells British newspaper The Independent, "I was looking forward to hearing Rod's records of standards. I thought if anybody could bring something different to these songs, Rod certainly could. But the records were disappointing.
"Rod's a great singer, but there's no point putting a 30-piece orchestra behind him. I'm not going to knock anybody's right to make a living, but you can always tell if somebody's heart and soul is into something, and I didn't think Rod was into it in that way."
