Father once more! Billy Joel is going to be a dad again, a rep for the singer tells Us Weekly.
The Grammy-winning legend's longtime girlfriend, Alexis Roderick, is pregnant. It will be the couple's first child together and the second child for Joel, 65, who shares daughter Alexa Ray Joel, 29, with ex-wife Christie Brinkley.
The rep tells Us that Joel and Roderick, 33, are expecting their new addition "this summer." The two started dating in 2009, following Joel's split from his third wife Katie Lee. The beloved performer was also previously married to first wife Elizabeth Weber Small in the 1970s and early '80s.
Roderick, who has worked for Morgan Stanley in recent years as a risk assessment officer, told the New York Daily News in 2010 that she met Joel at a restaurant and they "were friends for a while before we started dating."
The "We Didn't Start the Fire" singer remains on good terms with Brinkley, with whom he raised daughter Alexa. Joel and Roderick chose not to confirm whether they know the gender of their own child, as the rep told Us that they are opting "to keep any further details of her pregnancy under wraps until their new addition makes an official debut."
