AceShowbiz - Billy Joel announces a new addition to his growing family. He welcomes his second daughter at age 66. His fourth wife, 33-year-old Alexis Roderick, gave birth to a healthy baby girl on August 12. It's the couple's first child together after they married on the fourth of July this year.
"Della Rose Joel officially entered the world on Wednesday, Aug. 12, at 2:40 a.m. weighing in at 7 lbs, 6.5 oz.," a representative for the "Piano Man" hitmaker broke the news. The musician is already father to 29-year-old Alexa Ray, whom he had with his second wife, model Christie Brinkley.
"I would like to have been around more because I was on the road for years and years when she was a little girl," he said of her first daughter. "And After Christie and I split up, she was in Colorado, so I missed out on some of her childhood, which I would like to have been there for. But now I have a chance to do it better."
He then vowed to spend a lot of time with his second daughter. "She's going to have her dad around a lot," he told Newsday. "She'll probably be very embarrassed by the time she graduates high school, with kids asking, 'Is that your grandfather? No that's my dad.' But all kids reach that age where everything you do embarrasses them."
