Veteran rocker ROD STEWART is hoping to move back to his native Britain from California so his two youngest sons can be educated in the U.K.
The crooner has lived in Los Angeles since 1975, and has been raising his two boys with wife Penny Lancaster in the U.S.
However, Stewart is now hoping to bring his family back to Britain so the boys, Alastair, eight, and Aiden, three, can go to a U.K. school, and he has even purchased a new home in Essex, England ahead of the move.
Stewart is quoted by Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper as saying, "This place (Britain) is still in my heart. We are planning hopefully on moving back in about 18 months so my kids can grow up here. It's not definite. But this is where me and Penny, this is where we come from."
