Rod Stewart, 77, is “very proud” of his son Sean, 41 — and for good reason! On May 19, Sean announced the launch of his own Los Angeles-based clothing line, Dirty Weekend. The line, which is described as a “lifestyle brand created by Sean with a focus on unique signature pieces that include fashionable leisure streetwear,” is, coincidentally, the same name as one of Rod’s most famous hits from the late 1970s. Prior to launching the line, which is now available online, Sean spoke to HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY about everything from his current relationship status to his father’s reaction to him “forging his own path.”
