No hard feelings here! Billy Joel‘s third ex-wife Katie Lee seems to be taking his big baby news quite well. Earlier this week, the legendary singer, 65, and his girlfriend Alexis Roderick announced that they were expecting their first child together.
“I’m really happy for them. He’s a great guy, he deserves all the happiness in the world, and he’s a terrific father so I’m really really happy,” the celebrity chef, who was married to Joel from 2004 to 2009, told Extra of her ex. “He will always be in my life and I think he’s just the greatest.”
The “Uptown Girl” singer married the Food Network star when she was just 23 and he was 55. At the time, his daughter Alexa Ray Joel, whom he shares with second ex-wife, supermodel Christie Brinkley, was 18 and served as the maid of honor.
Now he is preparing for his second child, who is set to arrive this summer. In addition to Lee and Brinkley, whom he divorced in 1994, Joel first married Elizabeth Weber Small in 1973 and they split in 1982.
He has been dating Roderick since his divorce from Lee in 2009.
