A new bundle of joy has arrived for the Stewart family as the British rocker’s son Liam Stewart has just welcomed his first child with girlfriend Nicole Artukovich on May 12.

Taking to Instagram to announce the exciting news, Liam 28, also shared how he honoured his father in his newborn baby boy’s name.

“Welcome lad 💚 you American, British, Croatian, Kiwi,” Liam captioned his post, before revealing the name.

“Louie Mark Roderick Stewart 5.12.23.”

Rod Stewart’s wife Penny Lancaster commented, “Congratulations ❤️ that’s the look of love. Can’t wait for a hug 🤗”

While Aussie singer Natalie Imbruglia wrote, “Omg!!! Magical… lifetimes of blessings .. congratulations 💚✨”

Roderick is, of course, the rockstar’s first name, and Louie marks the birth of his second grandchild, with his daughter Kimberly Stewart welcoming Delilah del Toro in 2011.

New Zealand model Rachel Hunter, who Rod shares Liam and Renee with, also celebrated the arrival of Louie with a touching Instagram post.

“A beautiful Trinity – Welcome Louie, there are no words for me other than immense love, the beautiful support you both bring to each other,” she wrote, alongside a photo of the new parents and Louie.

“Nicole you are a Queen. Love you All so much. Just Blossoming & glowing, lots of happy tears 🙌🏽🌸💙🧡🙌🏽 No words just look at this pic. Heart burst 💙💥💙 @discostew94 @nicoleartukovich also Nicole’s amazing mum @tinaartukovic sending you lots of hugs 🤗 Can’t wait to meet you next week Louie 🤗”
