Singer Rod Stewart has revealed his son Aiden, 11, was rushed to hospital after suffering from a suspected heart attack during a football match.
The 77-year-old musician said his son went ‘blue and unconscious’ while playing for his Young Hoops Under-12s team.
The ‘I don’t want to talk about it’ singer did not say when the incident happened.
“We thought my boy had a heart attack,” Stewart told FourFourTwo magazine.
“He was going blue and was unconscious until he calmed down,” he added.
“It was scary, but it turned out to be a panic attack. The lad wanted to do well, pulled on the Hoops in Scotland for his dad,” he said.
According to the Calm Clinic – “Anxiety doesn’t appear to cause any dramatic changes to your skin color. You’re not going to turn blue or purple.”
The Calm Clinic adds:
- Lighter Skin Anxiety has the potential to make your skin much lighter. It’s not uncommon for those with anxiety to be described as “pale” during an anxiety attack because they appear much lighter than their skin does normally. This occurs because blood rushes away from the skin towards the heart, which causes the body to lose some of its natural pigmentation. Lighter skin may occur throughout the body.
- Redder Skin On the opposite end, anxiety can also cause skin to be redder/pinker – especially around the face and head. This is caused by capillaries in the face dilating, which allow in more blood and can make the skin of the face noticeably red.
According to NI Direct, blue skin and lips is usually caused by low blood oxygen levels or poor circulation.
The news comes months after the Rod Stewart lost his brother Bob at 88, and his other sibling Don.
Last month Rod’s son Sean, 42, was rushed to hospital after a road collision.
The rocker’s son with first wife Alana posted pictures of Sean wearing a face mask and hospital gown.
He explained in his caption: “I got hit by a truck at a red light.”
The singer also has seven other children.
His offspring are from romances with five different women and two sons with current wife Penny, 51, model Alastair, 16 and Aiden.
Kimberly, 43, and Sean, 42, are from Rod’s first marriage to actress, Alana Stewart, 77, and daughter Ruby, 35, is from his relationship with model Kelly Emberg, 63.
