BILLY JOEL: Another child on the way
Billy Joel will soon become a father for the third time. In an interview with Northern Ireland's Belfast Telegram, the Piano Man announced that his wife Alexis is about a month away from giving birth to the couple's second child.
At 68, Billy seems at ease with a second round of late-life fatherhood. He says two-year-old Della Rose is "pretty good... She sleeps through the night. I hope the next one will."
Billy is scheduled to play a show in Dublin next June.
