Pop star Lionel Richie
flew into a panic at the news his daughter Nicole
was pregnant - as he believed it would spell an end to his sex appeal.
The All Night Long
star, 59, believed the birth of 14-month old Harlow, fathered by punk rocker Joel Madden
, would signal his sex symbol status was over.
Yet Richie now admits he enjoys life as a grandfather, albeit at a distance.
He tells British tabloid the Daily Record
, "I went through a panic - that's the end of my career. But I'm having more fun now with the responsibility of being a grandpa - that is, playing with the baby and handing her back."
