Billy Joel

Billy Joel will become a father once again, according to his representative. Joel, 65, and his girlfriend of five years, Alexis Roderick, 33, will reportedly welcome the new arrival in August. Joel currently has no plans to get married again, but that could, of course, change, as circumstances change in his life.

Billy Joel and Alexis Roderick met in 2009, and have been together ever since. According to an interview that Roderick gave with the NY Daily News, they met each other at a restaurant in Long Island, though Alexis stated that Joel was going to dinner, but she was not. Joel’s representative said that the couple wants to keep further details private “until their new addition makes an official debut.”

Though the sex of their child has not yet been officially announced, Radar Online reported that “Piano Man” Billy Joel and his girlfriend will have a baby girl. The same media source also reported that Joel and Roderick plan to name their daughter Madison.

While Billy Joel and Alexis Roderick, a former employee of Morgan Stanley who worked there as a financial adviser, do not have any plans to get married in the near future, two years ago Joel reportedly gave his girlfriend a diamond ring. Billy Joel and Alexis appear to be very much in love, but Joel, who has already been married three times, does not seem ready to rush into another marriage quite yet, even with the news that he will become a father once again.

Billy Joel’s first wife was Elizabeth Weber Small. They got married in 1973. Three years after Joel got divorced from Small, he married actress and supermodel Christie Brinkley. The Uptown Girl singer and Brinkley have a daughter from their marriage, Alexa Ray Joel, who is now 29. In 2004, Joel wed Katie Lee, his third wife. They divorced after having been married for five years.

According to an article in the New York Daily News, Billy Joel and Alexis Roderick reside in Oyster Bay. They became friends before their relationship developed into something more romantic.

Billy Joel is one of the best-selling musical artists in history. Since the beginning of his career, he has sold over 150 million albums worldwide. Joel is also a very prolific songwriter of hit songs, amassing 33 Top 20 hits in America, alone, and he continues to be a very popular entertainer. He broke his own record of selling out Madison Square Garden 13 nights in a row. Joel’s last album of original material was River of Dreams, released in 1993.

Billy Joel will become a father again, 29 years after he became one for the first time, when he and his wife at the time, Christie Brinkley, became parents to their daughter, Alexa Ray Joel. Joel and his girlfriend, Alexis Roderick, shared the good news via social media on April 14. Though not many further details have been yet confirmed, some sources have reported that their baby will be another daughter, and she is expected to arrive in August.
