Rod's baby clothes blow-out
09:30 20 March 2006
Rod Stewart and fiancée Penny Lancaster splashed out £3,000 on baby clothes during a recent shopping spree.
The couple were spotted buying piles of miniature outfits for three-month-old son Alastair as they shopped in London's swanky Harrods store.
Last year, it was revealed Rod held a bizarre ceremony to welcome his new baby into the world - dousing his placenta in tea tree oil and burying it in his back garden.
Penny revealed: "We brought the placenta home and put it in the freezer so we could bury it later. When Rod's children Renee and Liam came over from Los Angeles, after lunch and before it got dark, we had a little ceremony. We doused the placenta in tea tree oil and placed it in a hole we'd dug in the garden.
"I said a few words like, 'This is for our little Alastair. May he have a long and healthy life.' Rod passed a spade to Liam, who shovelled in some earth. Then we all took turns. We all jumped on the top and flattened the ground. It was a resting place for it."
The pair finished off the ceremony by planting a walnut tree above the 'grave'.
