Billy Joel Is A Dad, Again…At 66!

Could she be the spark of inspiration that brings Billy Joel back to writing songs, after 20-plus years? Maybe. And by she, we mean, the new baby girl Joel and his new wife, Alexis Joel (the two officially wed on the 4th of July), just recently delivered into the world.

Yes, it’s true. The 66-year-old Piano Man and his 33-year-old wife are new parents to a precious baby girl the celeb couple has chosen to name Della Rose.

The baby gal will have a much, much older sister in Alexa Ray Joel, Dad’s 29-year-old daughter with one of his former wives, the wholesome blonde model Christie Brinkley.

While Baby Della Rose will have just one way-older sister in Alexa Ray, this will be half-sibling number three for Alexa, who has a sister named Sailor Lee Brinkley Cook and a brother named Jack Paris Brinkley Cook.

The baby gal name Della is not such a common one. The name is the female version of the male name Dell, an Old English location-inspired name that symbolized a small glen or valley. Della is also a shorter version of names such as Adele and Adela.

Joel is on a roll, which is so well deserved if you consider the two big-time ripoffs the artist experienced as a young man. Just last month, the Scenes from an Italian Restaurant singer broke a Madison Square Garden record for most ever solo performances, nabbing the title from that other great piano man known as Elton John.
