Eric Clapton to be a grandfather - report

Music legend ERIC CLAPTON is set to be a grandfather for the first time - his daughter Ruth is expecting her first child, according to a U.K. report.

The Layla hitmaker's eldest child is due later this month (May13) and the rocker is looking forward to his new role.

A source tells Britain's Daily Mail, "The baby is due any day and Eric is ecstatic."

Clapton was married to his first wife Pattie Boyd when he embarked on an affair with Ruth's mother, Yvonne Kelly. Ruth was born in 1985 but was not publicly revealed as his daughter until 1991.

She tied the knot with her architect partner Dean Bartlett in 2011 and her father performed at their wedding, which was held at his Surrey, England mansion.
