Aging rocker Rod Stewart publicly acknowledged on The Joy Behar Show last week he was a teenage father who agreed to place his baby for adoption.

See video of that interview here.

Interesting that pro-abort Behar responded, “Listen, it’s a great thing that you have that. At the end of the day you have each other now.”

Here was’s report:

“She was put up for adoption when I was 17 or 18, I think,” the rocker, now 65, says of his daughter Sarah Streeter [pictured above right with her father], who lives in England. “I was absolutely stone broke… and so she was put up for adoption.”

While the rocker had sporadic contact with Streeter – who is in her late 40s – since she learned in the 1980s that Stewart is her father, it is only recently that he has brought her into the fold of his family, according to the UK’s Daily Mail.

The catalyst was the death of her adoptive parents.

“Since her mum and dad have died, we’ve tried to come together and be close together, and it’s working out pretty well,” Stewart says. “I never felt like I was her dad, because I didn’t take her to school, change her nappies, there was no paternal thing there, but I’m trying.”

The rocker, whose wife Penny is pregnant with the couple’s second child, has 7 other children, including Streeter, his eldest child.

Streeter said recently she is finding the process of getting to know her father – which includes phone calls and family get-togethers – delicate but rewarding.

“There’s no anger there,” Streeter told the Daily Mail. “I never was angry about what happened really, just sad. But now I’m older I see things differently and realize that it has been as difficult for him over the years as it has been for me. Now we’re at the start of a new chapter, and that’s wonderful.”

According to

Rod has two children with his first wife Alana Hamilton: Kimberly, 31, and Sean, 30. He has a daughter with model Kelly Emberg: Ruby, 23. He has two children with his second wife, model Rachel Hunter: Renee, 18, and Liam, 16. Third wife Penny gave birth to Alastair 5 years ago, and is currently pregnant.
