If you've ever wondered who Rod's children are, then just scroll on to find out about the eight.

Sarah Streeter

Rod welcomed his first child, daughter Sarah Streeter, back in 1963 with then partner Susannah Boffey at the age of 17. However, the pair gave Sarah up for adoption, with the young girl being raised by Gerald and Evelyn Thubron.

Sarah only discovered her famous father's identity when she turned 18, but the pair reconciled in 2013 and have since gone on to form a strong bond. Speaking to MailOnline in 2018, Sarah said their relationship had "evolved" a lot, but the pair do refer to each other as 'dad' and 'daughter'.

The star's second child is daughter Kimberly, who was born in 1979 when Rod was married to Alana Stewart. Kimberly is well known in the United States as a businesswoman and model, but she has also turned her hand at acting.

The star has appeared in films like Black and White, as well as TV series such as Agatha Christie's Poirot and Going to California. In 2011, Kimberly and actor Benicio del Toro welcomed a daughter, Delilah.

Sean has also made a few headlines during his life, with he and his father being found guilty of assaulting a security guard while last year, he was rushed to hospital after being involved in a traffic collision.
