Sir Rod also shares son Aiden, 10, with Penny, although he was not present at the game.  

The outing comes after Sir Rod discussed Penny’s menopause journey on Loose Women on Tuesday.

The singer said he found the experience ‘frightening’ as he witnessed Penny change ‘from the person I married’ – leaving him researching everything he could about the menopause.

He said: ‘I googled menopause so much when she was going through it, she was in a fragile situation, I just had to listen and learn and get ready for saucepans being thrown through the kitchen.  

‘It was frightening, it wasn’t the person I married, she explained it through the tears and we talked it through.’

Last year Penny spoke out on her experience of the menopause, revealing that she first experienced symptoms during lockdown.

Penny admitted she has found the past few months extra tough because of her symptoms, but gushed that her rocker husband and their two sons Alastair and Aiden, 10, had been very understanding.

Speaking from her home, Penny told her co-stars: ‘Rod and I have a very close and intimate, open relationship about all sorts of things.’  

‘I talk to him about how I’m feeling in the lead up to my period, feeling a little down or sad or… I always say, “Darling give me space today, it’s the time of the month.”‘

She added: ‘I’ve explained to them [my family] about the hormones I’m experiencing since March, my last period.’

‘I’ve been having the really hot sweats, and then freezing cold… my body temperature is fluctuating all over the place. It affects your mood swings, I’ve been putting on more weight.’

Penny then recalled a particularly tough day, explaining: ‘I was in the kitchen, cooking dinner, it had been one of those days where everything had been going wrong and I’d had enough. I ended up throwing the dinner across the kitchen.’
