Rod Stewart has accidentally confessed he's only 5 feet 2 inches tall. The 62-year-old singer has always insisted he's an average 5 feet 10 inches but let his real measurements slip during an interview on a radio station.
Rod, who is engaged to 6'1" model Penny Lancaster, said: "There are a lot of things about me that people out there don't realize, with one exception I am definitely not 1.54 metres (just over 5ft) tall.
"I get annoyed when people say, 'There's little Rod Stewart with Penny Lancaster.' That really gets on my nerves. I am almost 1.56 metres (5 feet 2 inches) tall."
Penny, 36, recently admitted Rod wasn't the tallest of men after revealing their 18-month-old son, Alistair, had inherited her lofty genes.
She said: "Alistair really is a joy. He's above the average height now for his age so he takes after me."
Despite his lack of height, Rod has never had trouble attracting beauties. Before meeting Penny, he was previously married to New Zealand model Rachel Hunter and catwalk beauty Alana Hamilton and has dated model Dee Harrington and screen icon Britt Ekland.
