    Rod Stewart elected to have his newborn son Aiden baptized in Scotland as a tribute to his own father. How amazing of Rod, right?

    Rod's dad Robert was born in the country's capital of Edinburgh and the "Maggie May" singer paid respectful homage to his roots by heading back to the city for Aiden's christening.

    Stewart and his wife Penny Lancaster cobbled together friends and even wore tartan outfits to mark the occasion, making it a true, traditional celebration.

    In a chat with Hello, Lancaster AKA Mrs. Stewart revealed, "We had it in Edinburgh, because that's where Rod's father was born. We wanted to pay homage to Aiden's roots."

    What are your ancestral roots? Do you pay homage to them like Rod Stewart has?
