Sir Rod Stewart recently celebrated his daughter Ruby's baby news, and little did the rocker know that his son Liam, whom he shares with ex Rachel Hunter, was keeping his own baby joy a secret.

On Monday, however, the hockey player revealed the happy news to his followers, and his family were quick to react.

"Mom + Dad | Baby Boy joins us in May," he captioned a sweet video which sees him and his partner, Nicole Ann, posing together during the first months of the pregnancy and even doing a gender reveal next to their Christmas tree.

Liam's news comes just weeks after Rod celebrated that he was going to be a grandfather for a second time – and was even in charge of revealing the gender to Ruby and her partner Jake Kalick's first baby.
