Despite being 67-years-old the star says that he isn’t opposed to adding to his brood.

He may have said in the past that ‘having more children would kill him’ the Hello singer has changed his mind and says that he is ‘cool’ with the idea of extending his family.

He told the Mirror: “I’m willing to become a father again. I might have just let a secret slip there, but so be it - Lisa and I are cool with the idea of children. Marriage, on the other hand, is a very different issue, it’s a bad idea for men.”

He says that problems don’t stem from children, they stem from ex-wives:

“I’ve been there twice and it was very expensive for me. I’ve no idea to go there a third time - women have killed it for me. Kids aren’t the problem - ex-wives are. That’s why I won’t marry again, but I’m happy to commit in other ways.”

Lionel previously said that he would never have more children, in a conversation about Ronnie Wood to Rolling Stone he said:

“Of course, Ronnie Wood can have children he’s a Rolling Stone, he can defy the laws of gravity. It would probably kill me.

“But I really can’t see myself having any more children. I have enough. I’ve turned a corner.”
