Now THAT’S a Cool Mom

'RHOBH' Divided
Adrienne and Brandi's feud has their friends choosing sides.
Adrienne Maloof has been given the seal of approval from the (other) most important woman in boyfriend Sean Stewart’s life: his mother.

“As long as my son is happy, I’m fine with it,” Alana Stewart, the ex-wife of rocker Rod Stewart and Sean’s mom, exclusively told Celebuzz.

And why wouldn’t she be? For starters, 51-year-old Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Maloof only recently divorced her husband, plastic surgeon Paul Nassif. Oh, and she’s almost 20 years older than 32-year-old Sean.

Still, Alana isn’t concerned.

“I have met Adrienne, and I actually like her a lot,” said the 67-year-old, who also counts George Hamilton as an ex-husband. “To tell you the truth, I don’t pay too much attention to all the publicity. My son is a grown man, and he has to make his own decisions. And I approve of him dating Adrienne.”

Mother-of-two Maloof, meanwhile, has defended her new romance as the new normal, pointing to a few celebrity cougars as proof.

Jennifer Lopez, Madonna and Demi Moore it’s a trend now,” she told Life & Style. “Men do it all the time, so I guess now I am a trendsetter too. I honestly had no idea what kind of buzz this was going to get – not just here, but around the world.”

That buzz hasn’t quite extended to Rod and Alana, as the latter told us that the two haven’t discussed their son’s new romance.  But Alana certainly has plenty to talk about otherwise: besides running the Farrah Fawcett Foundation — which aims to raise money for cancer research in memory of her best friend — the philanthropist and author recently released a memoir, Rearview Mirror.

And she’s busy gushing over her new granddaughter, Delilah — the love child of her daughter Kimberley Stewart and Oscar winner Benicio Del Toro.

“My granddaughter did get christened recently,” said Alana, who revealed that the ceremony was held in Puerto Rico. “It was before a small group of people including Benicio’s family, who are from that part of the world. But neither Rod or I attended the event.”

“I’m really impressed with Kimberley — she is great with Delilah, who is a beautiful little girl.”

Do you give Sean and Adrienne your seal of approval? Let us know why — or why not — in the comments section.
