LONDON, England -- Rod Stewart is to become a father, for the seventh time, at the age of 60.

The rock star -- best known for songs like "Do You Think I'm Sexy?" -- has confirmed that he and his fiancee Penny Lancaster are expecting a child in early December.

Stewart said he felt "blessed" and planned to marry Lancaster in spring 2006. However, the singer still needs to divorce his second wife, Rachel Hunter, who is seeking a share of his fortune.

Rumors of the pregnancy circulated last week but the couple was reluctant to confirm it until Lancaster had safely passed her 12th week.

"I am overjoyed and extremely proud to be able to confirm that my fiancee Penny is carrying our baby," Stewart said in a statement.

"I count myself blessed to have bestowed upon me the honor of fatherhood again with Penny, whom I love and cherish so much."

Stewart and Lancaster have been together for nearly six years.

This will be Lancaster's first child.

Stewart has six children -- Kimberley, 25, and Sean, 24, by first wife Alana Stewart; Ruby, 17, by former girlfriend Kelly Emberg; and Renee, 13, and Liam, 10, by Hunter.

His sixth child, Sarah Thubron, 41, was born before he was famous following a teenage romance with art student Susannah Boffey.

Stewart proposed to Lancaster on a romantic trip to Paris in March.

After asking her father Graham's permission, he reportedly got down on bended knee at the top of the Eiffel Tower and presented her with a diamond engagement ring.
