Perhaps Kid Rock should consider changing his name to "Grandpa Rock" after it was revealed this week that his son is going to be a dad.

Us Weekly reported Sunday that Kid Rock's son conceived the child with his girlfriend roughly four months ago. They've recently learned that it's a girl.

Bobby Ritchie Jr., 21, is the son of Kid Rock and ex-girlfriend Kelley South Russell. Rock won a custody battle in 2000 for the then-7-year-old, and Russell was assigned weekly child support payments of $25.

Russell also sued Rock in 2000 for a 1998 song he allegedly wrote about their rocky romance, "Black Chick, White Guy."

Rock, 43, real name Robert James Ritchie, had a five-month marriage to Pamela Anderson in 2006. Anderson reportedly criticized Rock's mother and sister in front of his son, which led to the divorce.

Rap-rock singles "Bawitdaba" and "Cowboy" rocketed up the charts in the late 1990's, helping make Kid Rock's album "Devil Without a Cause" a multi-platinum success. He is also a multiple Grammy nominee.
