When a man begins dating a new woman, more often than not, it is going to be a case of the ex and the new woman not really getting on, which many of you will be able to relate to. Well, back in 1999, British music superstar Rod Stewart began dating the beautiful Penny Lancaster, after splitting from his girlfriend Rachel Hunter but, while the two women struggled to get along at the start, Penny has now admitted that she and Rachel are actually good friends.
Lancaster was a guest on the UK talk show Loose Women, when she explained, "'From the beginning it was a bumpy road. I just wanted it great for their (Rod and Rachel's) children - Renee, 24, and Liam, 22. They both have done extremely well. Renee is a dancer and Liam is playing hockey for Great Britain. Rachel and I have grown up and got more in common now. We both sit there and chat about general life like most people do. We got over that silly period."
She added, "That was the first time he had been left. He had done the leaving in the past so it was a different scenario for him. Life has moved on. We have grown up. I know it wasn't just a man I fell in love with it was the whole family. My heart went out to all the children. I could see the relationship Rod's children had with each other and I wanted my children to have the same relationship. Adults had to be adults. I am a bit of a peace maker and a diplomat and it's worked."
We love it when exes can get along, even if it is just for the sake of their children, so to hear that Rod Stewart, Penny Lancaster and Rachel Hunter are actually now all friends, it really does give you some hope that there is still some good people in the world.
