Congratulations are in order for the Piano Man himself, Billy Joel, who is expecting his second child, and his first with girlfriend Alexis Roderick. The 65-year-old musician and Alexis, 33, have been together for several years, and a source revealed that it will be another daughter for Billy.

Speaking to Radar Online, the source added: "They want to call the baby Madison."

The little girl is expected to be born sometime in the summer.

Billy and Alexis, a former advisor to investment firm Morgan Stanley, live in New York City and met at a restaurant. In 2010 Alexis told the New York Daily News that they "were friends for a while before we started dating".

The expectant mum-to-be is now reportedly keeping a low profile in the city that never sleeps. "She doesn’t leave the house too often because she doesn¹t want anyone to know," added a second source.

Billy, a six-time Grammy winner was previously married to Katie Lee in the early 2000s. His first marriage ended in the 1980s, before he met and married supermodel Christie Brinkley.

The pair welcomed their daughter, 29-year-old Alexa, who is also a musician, in 1985, but later split in 1994. Billy and Christine are still good friends, and were both there to help Alexa in 2014 when she suffered a major health scare after collapsing on stage.

"I just want to thank those who were there, who expressed their sweet concern and kind support. I am very grateful," Christie, 60, wrote following the incident. In a statement, Alexa assured fans she is doing well. "I wanted to thank everyone for coming out to support me," she said.

"I was excited and determined to fulfill my final performance and I really wanted to end my run with a bang, but this was not what I had in mind and hope I have the opportunity to make it up to the wonderful audience very soon. Thanks for all the concern."
