Rod Stewart’s daughter Ruby Stewart engaged to Jake Kalic

Ruby Stewart is a future bride!

The 35-year-old singer and model, whose father is rocker Rod Stewart, announced her engagement to partner Jake Kalic on Instagram on Sunday.

“Yes to…Always finding your hand to hold in the middle of the night…to always making a shitty situation something to laugh at…to calling me on my passive-aggressive bulls— knowing how and when to to hold in my arms without even having to ask…always telling me that I’m beautiful even when I’m sick and swollen…always hearing your deaf tone singing with all your heart…never being able to dance with you without laughing at you…always knowing that my home is wherever you are…”, she captioned a photo of the couple.

Stewart revealed earlier this month that she and her Made In founding fiancé are expecting a baby boy together in April.

“Of all the things that happened in 2022, you were by far the most beautiful…” she wrote on Instagram, captioning a video of an ultrasound. “We look forward to meeting you…”

Ruby also shared a video of the joyful moment she found out she was having a boy – news that was announced by her father Rod, who read the baby’s gender on a sealed piece of paper.

In the clip, cheers erupted as Rod proclaimed, “It’s a boy.” Ruby cupped her mouth and laughed, then hugged Kalick. Rod pumped his fist and shouted “Born a Celtic!” in honor of his favorite football team, Glasgow Celtic.

He then began singing, “another nod in the Stewart family”.

Ruby captioned the post, “Hire @sirrodstewart for your gender reveal! He’ll even write a personalized jingle for your unborn child.”

“Yes to this life…our love…Because Forever doesn’t seem long if we spend it with you…” she shared with an infinity emoji.

Ruby added a “special thank you” to Arrow and Anchor Antiques and Larry of Platt Boutique Jewelry “for creating this timeless and perfect piece,” and also thanked photographer Jessica Amerson.

“It was a custom ring that we did in collaboration with her good friend Brooke Baxter from @arrowandanchorantiques,” Platt Boutique Jewelry told PEOPLE exclusively. “A 3.52 carat emerald-cut vintage diamond bezel-set in brushed-finish 18-karat gold.”

Following the announcement of her baby on the way, Ruby’s family congratulated the couple and shared sweet messages.

“So happy for you two,” Rod wrote.

Stepmom Penny Lancaster chimed in, writing, “Can’t wait to meet him.” Former mother-in-law Alana Stewart posted, “How wonderful! So happy for you” while Rachel Hunter, also a former mother-in-law, wrote, “You are going to be an amazing mom.”

“Def has Stewart’s nose,” his half-sister Kimberly Stewart joked, while his half-sister Renee added, “I love you!”

On the same day, posting a family photo from vacation, Rod stood happily with his sons Aidan, 11, and Alastair, 17, whom he shares with Lancaster, as well as adult children Renee, 30, Ruby, 35, Sean, 42, and Kimberly, 43.

Rod first became a grandfather in 2011, when his daughter Kimberly Stewart and actor Benicio Del Toro welcomed their daughter, Delilah, who is now 11.

In 2021, the “Maggie” singer spoke with PEOPLE about how he learned to adapt his parenting method to each child.

“I have to be several different fathers because of the different age groups of my kids,” Rod explained. “You really have to treat them all as individuals with individual issues.”

The artist added: “For example, my 15 year old son goes out with girls, so I had to teach him a sex lesson. I just told him what he should and shouldn’t do, but he is on top. He was like, ‘Dad, I have the internet. I know everything.'”
