Rod Stewart’s son, Sean, 42, has shared today the latest update on his health after he suffered an accident while driving. He took to Instagram to share a picture to his story, which showed him wearing a neck brace, as well as a medical gown and protective face mask.

Sean captioned the photo: “I got hit by a truck at a red light.

“Hard out here on these streets,” concluded the actor, who Rod shares with his first wife Alana.

Sean’s health woes come after Rod’s wife Penny Lancaster opened up on the support she received from her husband as she battled with menopause symptoms.

Speaking during a chat with Channel 5’s Dan Walker, Penny marked World Menopause Day earlier this month by sharing her own experience.

The Loose Women star heaped praise on her husband for his support and for being “understanding” during the difficult time.

Dan asked: “Whenever we speak to women about this subject they speak about allies.

“What did your husband make of this, how did he help you and how have you helped him to understand?”

She replied: “It crept up on me just as much as it did to [my family].

“It was a learning curve for everyone but I had luckily the support of my husband, who was very understanding and I’m quite good at wearing my heart on my sleeve and discussing all sorts of topics.”

“Slowly but surely we discussed it with the boys and from me being a crumpled mess of tears on the floor from having the arms of support around me,” she continued. 

“He’s a great advocate for men to watch out for those symptoms and look on the internet. 

“There are so many resources out there now and books and to get your loved one to the GP.”

Penny credited Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) for allowing her to begin a new career as a special constable.

She explained: “I wouldn’t have had the fundamental skillset to apply myself firstly protecting life and property [if I hadn’t received menopause treatment].

“I was trying to protect myself at the time and you need to be strong when you’re out there.

“I had eight months of training and I became a special out on foot patrol last April.

“It’s really a lifeline for me I found something now that I’m 51 I’m so proud to be a part of the force and to make a difference every day.”

“I wouldn’t be able to do that if I didn’t have the hormone replacement that I’ve got,” Penny added.

Elsewhere in the interview, Penny detailed the symptoms she suffered before treatment, explaining: “Initially when I first had my symptoms, it was during the beginning of lockdown and I thought I was experiencing Covid symptoms. 

“Mostly it was the hot flushes, which I thought was the temperature of Covid.”
