The Piano Man is about to be a father again.
Billy Joel and his fourth wife, Alexis, are expecting their second child in November. The couple, who married on July 4, 2015, have a two-year-old daughter Della Rose, and Billy Joel has another daughter, Alexa Ray Joel, 31, from his marriage to Christie Brinkley.
Joel confirmed the pregnancy while being interviewed for a profile in Ireland’s Belfast Telegraph, during which the writer met a “heavily pregnant” Alexis. Of Della Rose, Joel told the publication that, “This one is pretty good. She sleeps through the night. I hope the next one will. I hang out with her and watch her little wheels spin. She’s a funny kid. She loves to laugh. I like to make her laugh.”
Joel will be playing a stadium show in Dublin on June 23. Next performs on October 20 for his monthly show at New York’s Madison Square Garden and has announced a New Year’s Eve performance in Sunrise, Fla.
