Rod Stewart Planned Baptism Around Soccer Schedule
The Maggie May singer travelled to Edinburgh, Scotland with his wife Penny Lancaster for the christening of ten-month-old Aiden in front of their other son Alistair, and their friends and family.
The soccer-mad rocker demanded they choose a date that did not clash with Scottish side Celtic F.C.'s fixture list - and when he discovered his beloved team was playing at its home ground in Glasgow a day before the christening, he insisted on attending the game.
Lancaster tells Britain's Hello! magazine, "Before we set the date, I had to check when the Celtic games were on. Sure enough, there was one the day before the service, so Rod drove from Edinburgh to Glasgow for the game.
"I took Alistair and his cousins to the German Christmas fair in Edinburgh, but I was walking around, checking my texts for the football results. His team won, thank God!"
