At What Age Did Rachel Hunter Have Her Children Renee and Liam Stewart, and Where Are They Now?

Rachel Hunter is widely known as a model but she is also famed as an actress and a television personality. She is the host of Rachel Hunter’s Tour of Beauty and her modeling career which began at the age of 16 has seen her model in France, New Zealand, Australia, and of course the United States of America, among other countries of the world. The Auckland-born model is definitely one of the renowned names in the field of modeling, thanks to her poise, elegance, and all-round beauty. In addition to the popularity she earned from her career, Rachel is famous for her marriage to British rock and pop singer, Rod Stewart. Even though their union didn’t witness a decade, it produced two kids who have continued to link Rachel to the superstar singer she divorced in 2006.

Rachel Hunter Is 51 Years Old and She Got Married When She Was 21

The model was born on the 8th of September 1969 in Glenfield which is a suburb of Auckland, New Zealand. Though the star was born and raised in a place that is generally very far away from everywhere, she managed to achieve global recognition; this on its own is very commendable.

Rachel Hunter’s exploits in showbiz exposed her to popular names in the industry and that was how she met the British singer regarded as one of the best-selling music artists of all time. As the story goes, Hunter met Sir Roderick David Stewart CBE at a nightclub in Los Angeles and they started talking. They subsequently began dating and things happened quickly for them as they got married three months later; precisely on the 15th of December 1990. The wedding happened at the Beverly Hills Presbyterian Church in California. 

Rachel was only 21 years old then and Stewart was 24 years older than her. As often said, age was only a number for them so it didn’t stop the two from building a family together. After nine years of marriage which saw the birth of two kids, the couple parted ways and finalized their divorce on the 2nd of November 2006.

Her First Child Is 28 Years Old and She Had Her When She Was 23

  • Name: Renee Stewart
  • Date of Birth: June 1, 1992
  • Occupation: Model, Dancer, Yoga and Meditation Teacher
  • Father: Rod Stewart

Rachel Hunter’s kids are just as pleasant to look at as their mother, the star has a daughter named Renee Stewart who was born on the 1st of June 1992. Renee is the first child that Rachel had with her ex-husband and she gave birth to her when she was 23, two years into their marriage.

Renee has been following her mother’s footprints and is now a wee bit famous in her own right. She is a part of both the modeling and dancing worlds; so one can conclude she is living her mother’s dream.

Apart from being a dancer and a model, Renne is also a yoga and meditation teacher. She tries her best to live her life outside her parent’s shadows and has a small circle of friends which includes other dancers, mutual friends she shares with her brother, Liam, and her half-sister, Ruby.

The Model Was 25 When She Had Her Second Child With Rod Stewart

  • Name: Liam Stewart
  • Date of Birth: September 5, 1994
  • Age: 26 Years Old
  • Occupation: Ice Hockey Player

Rachel Hunter has only two kids and both of them were with Rod Stewart. Roughly two years after they welcomed their first child, they welcomed their second, a son named Liam Stewart who was born on the 5th of September 1994.

Liam schooled at Coventry University where he became quite popular as a hockey player. In April 2017, he gained a lot of recognition for scoring his first international goal as Great Britain beat Estonia 5-1 at the ice hockey World Championship in Belfast.

The professional ice hockey player possibly fell in love with the sports because of the men his mom dated after she divorced Stewart. It’s no secret that she dated Sean Avery, a Canadian National Hockey League player in 2004. Thereafter, she dated Jarret Stoll for at least three years. Jarret is a former professional ice hockey player from Canada who played for the Los Angeles Kings. It is said that Jarret mentored Liam in the sport.

Where Are Rachel Hunter’s Children Now?

Because of Rod Stewart’s relationship history which has seen him father no fewer than eight children with five women, it is believed that the responsibility of raising Renee and Liam fell on Rachel after she separated from their father. As it is known, Rod’s career also made him a very busy man. What this means is that he was not always there for Renee and Liam even though he has been a part of their lives. Rachel had to find a way to balance her career and parenting her kids.

This wasn’t an easy task for her because the kids have popular parents. So she had to always strive to shield them from the public while maintaining some measure of normalcy for them. Hunter is among the many celebrities whose parents got divorced when they were really young. She probably allowed her experience of her parents’ failed marriage to guide her on how to raise her kids. There are no doubts she did a good job as Renee and Liam are responsible adults who have built a decent career and identity for themselves outside of who their parents are.

Liam plays as a defenceman for the Raiders IHC, an ice hockey team based in Romford, United Kingdom. The team competes in the National Division of the National Ice Hockey League which is the second tier of British ice hockey. His older sister Renee traveled to India in 2019 and studied Yoga at Sattva Yoga Academy where she received a Teacher Training Certificate. She now teaches Yoga in the UK and indeed the rest of the world through her online yoga classes platform.

Where Is Rachel Hunter Now?

As stated earlier, her career took off when she was 16 but modeling wasn’t her first choice. She wanted to become a ballet dancer and was working towards that until she was diagnosed with a rare blood disease as a teenager that affected her dancing dream.

Thankfully, all was not lost as she still made a name for herself in showbiz. In addition to her modeling career, Hunter has also made appearances on the big screen. She first appeared on television in the 1980s in an advertisement for Tip Top’s ‘Trumpet’ ice-cream. Since then her TV appearances have skyrocketed, she has appeared in everything from movies, to indie shows and has even dabbled in a little bit of hosting, one could even call her a jack of all trades.

Much hasn’t been heard from Racheal hunter since 2018 when she made appearances in two episodes of the tv series, Celebrity Page. From what we gathered, she now devotes her time to yoga and meditation. This is partly why she often travels to India. When she is not in the Asian country, you may find her in New Zealand or her home in Los Angeles.
