Billy Joel performs onstage celebrating his 65th birthday at Madison Square Garden on May 9, 2014 in New York City.

The “Piano Man” is having a third child, his second with wife Alexis Joel.

The news was confirmed in a Belfast Telegraph profile that described Alexis as “heavily pregnant" with the baby due next month. 

The 68-year-old musician has been with Alexis, 35, since 2009. They tied the knot on July 4, 2015, at their home in Oyster Bay, New York. The following month they welcomed their first child together, Della Rose.

“This one is pretty good,” Joel said of Della Rose. “She sleeps through the night. I hope the next one will.”

He said he hangs out with his daughter for fun. “She’s a hoot,” he said. “She’s a funny kid. She loves to laugh. I like to make her laugh.”
