Aerosmith Stars Become New Grandfathers on the Same Day
Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry has become a grandfather on the same day as his bandmate Steven Tyler.
According to an announcement released on the group’s official social media feeds, the musicians both welcomed new family members on Wednesday — singer Tyler became a grandad for the fourth time when his daughter Mia gave birth to son Axton as Perry was celebrating the arrival of a granddaughter.
The confirmation read: “Congrats to Steven Tyler and Joe Perry on the birth of their new grandchildren. Both born today! How cool is that! The newest member of the Tyler family is a beautiful little boy, 7 lbs 11 oz born at 5:45am. The newest member of the Perry family is a beautiful little girl, 6 lbs 9 oz born at 2:11pm.”
Tyler and Perry will have to make the most of being grandfathers in a hurry — Aerosmith are due to start their Aero-Vederci Baby! tour in Tel Aviv, Israel on May 17.
The duo is then planning to return to the studio to work on the next, possibly final, Aerosmith album.
