It's a 'Modern Family'

Are you a fan of the TV show Modern Family?

It's a great sitcom about three families surviving in a modern world: an older man married to a much younger woman, a traditional stay at home mom looking after her three kids and a gay couple who adopted a baby from overseas. Mixed with humor and reality, Modern Family shows that every family is different and how they create their families can happen in many different ways.

Maybe Rod Stewart should make a guest appearance on Modern Family. The 66-year-old singer became a father for the eighth time after his wife Penny Lancaster, 39, gave birth to their son Aiden via in vitro fertilization (IVF). The couple reportedly tried three IVF cycles before becoming pregnant with their son. The family is definitely modern, but we hope the singer's lullabye to his new baby is still "Have I Told You Lately that I Love You?"

Whether you create your own family by fertility treatments, adoption or other means, every family is not always traditional ... And that is a wonderful, amazing thing.
