There might be a new kid in Kid Rock’s life soon! The 43-year-old is reportedly going to be a grandfather.
Kid’s 21-year-old son, Bobby Ritchie Jr., is expecting a baby girl with his girlfriend, according to new reports. A source tells Us Weekly she’s already four months along. Kid Rock’s rep had no comment on the matter.
Kid Rock’s only child, Junior is the rocker’s son with one-time love Kelley South Russell. You might have heard Bobby, Jr. come up previously; Kid’s famous ex Pamela Anderson supposedly criticized Kid’s mother and sister in front of Bobby as a child and thus inspired Kid Rock to file for divorce.
“[The relationship] started to affect my son,” he told HuffPo in 2012 of his and Pamela’s marriage. “When it started to affect my son, I was like ‘I’m out.’ It took me a minute, but thank God I did.”
Kid’s been raising Bobby as a single dad for most of his son’s life; a highly publicized custody battle with Kelley ended after 10 months when Kid Rock agreed to let his then-7-year-old son spend more time with his mother despite the couple’s rocky past (she once stabbed him in the leg with a knife!).
Congratulations to Bobby, Jr. and his lady love if their good news is indeed true! We can’t wait for the “Grandpa and me” photos of Kid with the kid.
