Rod Stewart discusses his ‘tearful’ reunion with his family after being separated due to restrictions.
During lockdown, ROD STEWART revealed how difficult it was for him to see some of his children and grandchildren for “a whole year.”
Sir Rod Stewart appeared on BBC Sounds’ Headliners last week, where he gushed about the devastation he felt after being stranded in the UK due to a worldwide travel ban, which kept him away from his family in California.
The 76-year-old, who splits his time between London and Los Angeles, was especially upset because he couldn’t see his only granddaughter, Delilah del Toro, making the ordeal even more difficult.
I was unable to leave, let alone travel to America.
It was a terrible blow.

“For a whole year, I couldn’t leave, I couldn’t go to America,” Rod said during his interview with host Nihal Arthanayake.
It had a huge impact.”
“I was fortunate, you know,” he added.
I live in a lovely large house with a lot of land.
Pity the poor families who live in apartment buildings with four children and only two rooms.
“My god,” says the speaker.
It’ll leave a long-term mark.”
Rod’s father of eight was then questioned by Nihal about how he dealt with not being able to be close to his loved ones during such trying times, especially since family is so important to him.
The Sailing singer described the reunion as “tearful” after the lockdown measures were eased and he was finally able to board a flight across the pond.
“It was, um, nothing had really changed.”
I hadn’t seen Kimberly or Sean in quite some time.
They had the same appearance.
What else can I say except that it was tearful.”
Rod is the father of eight children: Sarah, 58, Kimberly, 42, Sean, 41, Ruby, 34, Renee, 29, Liam, 27, Alastair, 15, and Aiden, ten years old.
Delilah, his daughter Kimberly’s child from her marriage to actor, is his only grandchild.
Benicia del Toro is a city in the state of Texas in the United States.
Rod didn’t hesitate to answer when asked later about some of the most important qualities he’d instilled in his children over the years.
“Honesty is the best policy.”
Don’t brag, uh, uh, uh, uh
Keep your ego in check.
“I despise it when one of my children constantly brags about how good he is.
“Exhibit respect for your parents, as well as respect in general — and good manners.”
I place a high value on decency.
‘Manners will open doors for you,’ I told all my boys.
Despite this, Rod manages to maintain his humility.
