Penny said: ‘The two of them are just inseparable. This is Daddy’s. Everyone has to be a Celtic fan, and it is the one toy that they fight the most over and normally they play tug of war with this.’
Earlier this year, Penny, who shares her two sons Alastair, 13, and eight-year-old Aidan with husband Rod, revealed that she and the rocker, who is a father-of-eight, previously considered expanding their brood through adoption.
Speaking on Loose Women in June, the former model admitted while the power couple pondered on growing their family, their children weren’t keen on the idea, and insisted on ‘getting a puppy instead’.

The TV personality, who has been married to the musician since 2007, shared: ‘We considered adopting.
‘But having discussed it with the little ones they said they loved out little brood the way that it is and there might have been too much of an age gap. So we’re getting a puppy instead’, she added.
Penny went on to explain that although the couple have space for another child and felt they had ‘extra love and fun’ to offer, they had to take the feelings of their own children into account before making the decision.
Speaking about her puppy at the time, she said: ‘It’s a mix between a lab and a poodle so it’s a labradoodle… it’s a girl and it’s blonde so we think [we’ll call her] Blondie.’
Paul O’Grady’s: For the Love of Dogs on Wednesday November 6 on ITV at 8pm.
