Red Hot Chili Peppers star Flea is super ‘excited’ to be a new dad at 60 after welcoming his third child last month.

The bassist has two daughters Clara aged 34 and Sunny, 17, from previous relationships and he is now father to a new baby with his second wife, fashion designer Melody Ehsani.

Ready to enjoy becoming a dad for the third time, the couple’s latest addition arrived on December 12, 2022 after they had been married for three years.

The new parents have yet to give any more details about their baby’s name or gender.

Speaking about entering fatherhood once more, the rocker and actor shared his excitement at the road ahead.

He told People: ‘I’m excited for it all. The love and connection, Sesame Street, dipping little toes in frothing ocean waters for the first time.’

Flea went on to insist that being a parent is his most important role in life, adding: ‘Being the best parent I can be has been the single most important thing to me in the world since the day my eldest daughter was born. 

‘Even when I had no business being a dad, I wanted to be a dad. I now have a 34 year old and a 17 year old and a baby, and their birthdays are all going to be wishing a month of each other.

‘It’s like, every 17 years exactly, I have a kid.’

The Under The Bridge musician and Melody married in 2019 and they revealed their pregnancy news over the summer, with Flea insisting he is glad to have found the perfect woman to share his life with.

The star said of his wife: ‘I married her right before the pandemic. When I first me her, she was the most self-contained, strongest person I think I’ve ever meant.

‘And gorgeous, funny and smart. Right away we just started reading books together and connecting. I was in awe of her.’

Flea recently took a step away from music to appear in the new 1920s Hollywood flick Babylon. 

He portrays Bob Levine in Damien Chazelle’s star-studded drama, which documents the shift of the industry from silent films to a new era of production and also features Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie.
