Ge Goo Goo Goo, Ge Ga Ga Ga! Sting is about to enter the ranks of rock star grandparenthood.
Brigitte Michael, his eldest daughter with wife Trudie Styler, is due to give birth early next year, with a January 17 due date. Sting and Styler, whose own birthday is January 6, revealed the news in an appearance on Watch What Happens Live! During the appearance Styler also revealed a connection between Brigitte and the late David Bowie, whose birthday is January 8:
"I was pregnant with our first baby, Mickey, and (Bowie) was on stage in New York. He saw us at the side of the stage and saw my very pregnant belly and he came over and said, 'That's a girl you're having!' It was just so kind of him to see me first. And now our daughter is having her first baby at the beginning of January. We're all Capricorns."
Sting recently released a new album, 57th & 9th, and ushers in the New Year in Las Vegas. He begins a world tour on February 1 in Vancouver.
