Rod Stewart

Kimberly Stewart gave birth to a daughter on Sunday, making her rockstar father Rod Stewart a first-time grandfather. Benicio del Toro is the father of the baby, and while he and Kimberly aren't an item, Benicio's rep confirmed earlier this year that he is "very supportive" and that the two were "looking forward to the arrival of the baby." Rod isn't the only rocker-turned-grandpa, however. The following musicians have also added the title of "grandfather" to their lengthy resumes.

Steven Tyler

The "American Idol" judge and former Aerosmith frontman has four kids: Liv, Mia, Chelsea and Taj. His oldest child, actress Liv Tyler, gave birth to son Milo in 2004 with her then-husband Royston Langdon. Although Steven's hectic schedule and far-flung family mean that he can't see his kids as often as he would like, he told People earlier this year that he "lives" for visits from Milo.

Ozzy Osbourne

Most of us are familiar with the Prince of Darkness' current wife Sharon and kids Aimee, Kelly and Jack from their MTV reality show "The Osbournes," but Ozzy also has three kids from his first marriage to Thelma Riley: Elliot Kingsley, whom he and Thelma adopted together, and biological children Jessica and Louis.

Jessica now has two children, Isabelle and Harry; unfortunately, she is reportedly not close to Ozzy and his new family. Ozzy also has two grandchildren from his son Louis named Elijah and Mia.

Paul McCartney

Paul has four biological children: Mary, Stella, James and Beatrice. His first three children were with his late wife Linda McCartney, while Beatrice's mother is Paul's ex-wife Heather Mills.

The former Beatle also has seven grandchildren, the most on this list. Four of his grandchildren are thanks to Stella, who married husband Alasdhair Willis in 2003 and has two sons, Miller and Beckett; and two daughters, Bailey and Reiley. Paul's eldest daughter Mary has three children: Arthur, Elliot and Sam.

Mick Jagger

Like most rockstars, Mick has been romantically linked to several women over his career; his four babymamas are Marsha Hunt, Bianca Jagger, Jerry Hall and Liciana Gimenez. These unions resulted in seven children, including fashion designer Jade Jagger and model Georgia May Jagger. The Rolling Stones musician also has two grandchildren, both from daughter Jade, named Amber and Assis.

Lionel Richie

Lionel has two children with ex-wife Diane Alexander, but it's his adopted daughter Nicole who made the musician a grandfather. Nicole gave birth to Harlow Winter Kate Richie Madden in 2008 and Sparrow James Midnight Madden in 2009. Both children are with Nicole's husband Joel Madden.

Although Nicole has had a troubled past, Lionel acknowledges that motherhood brought his daughter full circle. In a 2008 appearance on "Larry King Live," Lionel said of his daughter, "[She's] the happiest person I have met in my life... Right now, she's just in total control. I'm the one that's nervous. I'm Grandpa."

Quincy Jones

The legendary musician and producer has six daughters -- Jolie, Jenya, Kidada, Martina, Rachel and Rashida -- and a son, Quincy Jones III. He also has six grandchildren and calls his big family "the pride of my life now."

Despite working with some of the biggest names in history over his career, including Michael Jackson and Aretha Franklin, Quincy maintains that his primary job is "being a good parent."
