Rod Stewart and his wife chose between adopting a puppy or a child

Rod Stewart and his wife have learned that eight is enough.

The music legend and his wife considered adding another child to their family. But Penny Lancaster tells a British chat show they instead decided to get a puppy.

Appearing on Loose Women (a show modeled after The View and The Talk), Penny said their two sons were not thrilled by the idea -- and pushed for "getting a puppy instead." Lancaster also noted that there would have been a serious age gap between an infant and the boys, now eight and 12.

"We'd even considered adopting, but having discussed it with the little ones, they said they love our little brood the way it is -- and there might have been too much of an age gap. So they're getting a puppy instead [laughs]."

Host: "Would Rod have been up for adopting? 'Cause he's got quite a few children. He's got how many now? Eight?

Penny: "Eight altogether, but you know, we're fortunate to have a big house. There's a spare room, extra love and funds that families need these days. And, we thought, 'Why not?' Give another child that needs [fades]."

For the newest member of their household, the Stewarts chose a Labradoodle, a cross between a Labrador and a poodle.
