As a guy who's had eight children with five different women, only three of whom he's married, RodStewart knows a thing or two about broken romances. In fact, he admits he's "desperately ashamed" ofthe way he treated his many exes over the years.
Speaking to the U.K. paper The Telegraph, Rod says, "The one thing I am desperately ashamed of is theway I would finish relationships. I can have confrontation with a bloke but never with a woman: I justhave to run away from it. It’s sad, its shallow, and I’m embarrassed about it."
But the 68-year-old music legend says for the most part, he's stopped his womanizing. He tells theTelegraph that he was faithful to his second wife, Rachel Hunter, for seven years, and he's been withhis current wife, Penny Lancaster, for 13. "I think I was always looking for that perfect woman, whoobviously doesn’t exist," Rod admits. "I wanted to be married. I wanted more kids. I’m a family man, atheart."
Rod's family and his many relationships inspired his new album, Time, which is coming out next month.As previously reported, there's one song about his break-up with the mother of his first child, who waslater put up for adoption. The title track is about his split with Hunter, and another song, "It's Over," isabout the aftermath of a bitter divorce.
"It's the heartbreak for the kids that does me in," the twice-divorced Rod admits. "I wrote it for peoplethat are going through that.”
Elsewhere on the album, there are songs about the joy of Stewart's current marriage to Lancaster,as well as a song addressed to a son -- it doesn't say which one -- called "Live the Life." And Rod saysanother track, titled "Pure Love," which is about all of his kids, is "something they can play when I’munder the grass."
Time is in stores May 7.
