Singer Rod Stewart and model Rachel Hunter have finally divorced following their separation seven years ago.

Documents from Los Angeles Superior Court show the divorce was finalised on 2 November, but disclose no details of any financial settlement.

Hunter, 37 and Stewart, 61, married in 1990 and have two children together. Stewart has seven children in total.

Stewart proposed to model Penny Lancaster, 35, last year. The pair have a one-year-old son.

Stewart's spokesman had no comment on the divorce or when the pair will wed, although Lancaster's agent Nicholas Young said last year that Stewart wanted to get married in Scotland, the birthplace of his father.

Hunter initially filed for divorce in 2003, but dropped the proceedings. Stewart filed his own papers last year, citing irreconcilable differences.

Stewart became famous as a singer in the Faces before having a string of solo hits including Baby Jane, Do Ya Think I'm Sexy, Maggie May and Sailing.

The singer's popularity has enjoyed a revival in the US recently with the success of his Great American Songbook albums of 1930s and 1940s cover versions.
